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.

'The Fedcoin is HERE': Glenn Beck reveals what the Fed was up to while YOU weren’t watching

While Americans were preparing for Thanksgiving last Wednesday afternoon, the Federal Reserve moved forward with its "Central Bank Digital Currency" program, and that wasn't the only controversial policy that was rolled out while you weren’t watching.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck reviewed the latest financial stories you may have missed over the holiday weekend, including how Biden's pause on student loan payments may be extended again and yet another sketchy Hunter Biden investment.

"You might have missed what happened Wednesday afternoon at the Fed," Glenn began. "They started their CBDC, Central Bank Digital Currency. Yes, the Fedcoin is here. Now they rolled it out on Wednesday — I mean, that was the only day they could do it, you know, because they've been denying that any of this stuff was happening. But they could only get it [launched] when no one was paying attention. So they rolled it out, and it's in its beta test now."

"By the way, India just rolled out its retail pilot program for digital rupees as well. But don't worry," he continued. "Maybe we should start having the conversation of, 'Gosh, this looks like the mark of the beast.' I mean, doesn't it? But surely it's not. Of course not. Not from the U.S. government. They never do anything underhanded or evil. Never."

China has been locking its citizens down for over two years under its zero-COVID policy, and it's becoming more and more clear that this isn’t just about COVID but something much more serious: slavery and control. Now it looks like many citizens have had enough. Protests are currently spreading throughout China and, unlike during the Tiananmen Square protests, the word is getting out.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck looked into the protests' "real motivations," explained how they’re different from the 1989 protests at Tiananmen Square, and predicted how these events are a "game-changer for the entire world."
