Here's what Glenn thinks about denying service to same-sex couples

TheBlaze had a big story yesterday on the Washington state florist who was found guilty of discrimination for refusing service for a same-sex wedding. The florist isn't backing down, claiming that she would be violating her religious beliefs. Glenn had the story on radio today, and gave his thoughts on whether or not a business could deny a service based on their religious beliefs.

In a letter to the state Attorney General, Barronelle Stutzman wrote "Washington's constitution guarantees us 'freedom of conscience in all matters of religious sentiment.' I cannot sell that precious freedom. You are asking me to walk in the way of a well-known betrayer, one who sold something of infinite worth for 30 pieces of silver. That is something I will not do."

More on the story below:

"If I have a religious belief, I cannot change that. It's my religious belief. I have a right to conscience. Why do we not understand that? I have a right to conscience," Glenn said.

Stutzman said that she had served the patron in question, Robert Ingersoll, for years and had employed many members of the LBGT community over the years.

"That's not a hater. That's just somebody who says, I can't do that because of what my faith tells me to do," Glenn explained.

"It's not hurting another person," Stu added. "It's just saying, 'Well, we won't do business.' I will say that I go through like all the time making all sorts of decisions of who I will do business with based on any number of factors, but apparently your religion is not allowed to be one of them anymore."

Glenn said that he wouldn't sue a business that denied him flowers for a church service because they were atheists. He wouldn't necessarily go back and would tell his friends about it, but there's no reason to take legal action.

"This is the main problem with America. None of us are consistent with what we believe. Most of us don't even know what we believe. And if you do know what you believe. And you try to actually be consistent on that, society hammers you for it," Glenn said.

"We're creating this idea that you have to do things to just be a normal citizen," Stu said. In the past, it was just selective service. Now everyone has to have health insurance or face a penalty.

"You have to provide cakes to certain ceremonies now to be in good standing," Stu said.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.
