Spoiler alert: Indiana isn't anti-gay

Indiana just passed new legislation allowing business owners to deny service based on freedom of religious conscience. Of course, the left has come out and attacked the state and the Governor Mike Pence, saying that the new law legalizes discrimination against gays. But progressives are totally missing the point.

On radio this morning, Glenn made the argument that the bill isn't designed to legalize discrimination, but only protect people who are truly religious from being forced to participate in a ceremony that violates their beliefs. This is a point that Governor Mike Pence is failing to make when he appears on national news shows to defend the law.

"I think the governor is doing a horrible job in defending this Religious Freedom Act," Glenn said. "No one is for discrimination against anybody. Do you know anybody that's for discrimination? No. I don't know anyone who is for discrimination."

"Let's be really clear. I'm not for discrimination against gays. But I'm also not for discrimination against religious people. There comes a time when we all have to live together. There comes a time when we're all going to have to accept that people are different and celebrate true diversity," he said.

Glenn has said time and time again that marriage is between the individuals getting married and God, not the government, but that an individual's church or faith shouldn't be forced to participate if it violates their church doctrine.

"They have the right to get married. If they want to get married, they can get married. Does my church have to marry gay people? No. Do you have to get married in my church? No. Do you have a right to find a church that will marry you? Yes," Glenn said.

"So your right to be gay. Your right to frequent stores. Your right to do all of those things. You're protected. You don't have a right to discriminate against someone because they're gay. But gay people, you don't have a right to force people who are religious to participate in your ceremony. Then we all get along. It's just that easy. You don't have a right to discriminate against gay people, sell them a cupcake, sell them flowers, sell them a cake, when they ask you," Glenn said.

It's important that the individuals objecting based on their religious beliefs truly truly be conscientious objectors. This new law should not allow blanket discrimination.

"This is the key here. You actually have to be religious. You can't just be someone, I hate them gays. So I won't do it. No, tell me a little about your religion. Because this is not a right to discriminate. This is a right that you have to protect your sensibility. You're a conscientious objector," he said.

"We just need to talk to the reasonable people on both sides. You don't have a right to discriminate. If you're coming into your bakery and want to buy a cupcake, I'm selling you a cupcake and I have to sell you a cupcake. If you're coming in and asking me to participant in your ceremony which is something against my religion, I need to kindly tell you, 'I can't do this. I'm really sorry. I just can't do this. You may not want to be a customer with me anymore, but I hope that's not true, because I don't have anything wrong with you. I just can't participate in your ceremony. Because for me, this is a deal between man, woman, and a God. And you don't see it that way. And that's fine. That's totally fine. I'll sell you anything in the store. I can't participate in your ceremony.' What is the problem with that?" Glenn said.

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
