There are over 40,000 preachers ready to stand against the government

Yesterday, Glenn announced the next phase of the movement that began at Restoring Honor. If you remember, Glenn ended that event with close to 300 faith leaders joining arm-in-arm as a new Black Robe Regiment. Since that day, the Black Robe Regiment has been quietly working and growing in the background, but now they are ready to stand and take action. David Barton has been a key organizational force in that group, and joined Glenn on radio to give an update on what they are doing next.

"Black Robe Regiment is what the British called the American pastors in the American Revolution. Because pastors back then -- black pastors, white pastors, Catholic and Protestant all wore black robes. And the British blamed the American Revolution on the pastors. On that Black Robe Regiment. Literally, they said that had it not been for those pastors, America would still be a happy British colony," David said.

David then told the story of how George Whitfield, a preacher, was influential in both American politics and the military.

"When we had the Stamp Act that really kind of started the whole process of moving toward the Revolution, when it came time to protest the Stamp Act in London, America sent two people to London to protest the Stamp Act. One was Ben Franklin, the other was George Whitfield. So there's a guy very involved in politics. Then when it comes time -- Whitfield is one of the first to tell the Americans, if you want to preserve your freedoms, you'll have to separate and become independent. Whitfield is the guy credited with starting the American military, the first military flag, and the first military motto. So when he died in 1770, which was the end of the Great Awakening, at his death, he was buried at a church in Newbury Port, Massachusetts. When George Washington sent the first expedition out to start the American Revolution, it was to Quebec in 1775. That expedition going out of Massachusetts stopped at the church at Newbury Port, where Whitfield was buried. They went inside. They had a sermon. After the sermon, they lifted the top the sepulcher, and the soldiers all reached in and cut off a piece of Whitfield's robe to take with them into battle. Because he's the father of the military. Now, how many preachers today would be accused of being the father of the military or are arguing economic policy in front of parliament or starting the military. That's the Black Robe Regiment back then."

Today, David says the Black Robed Regiment has grown to 40,000 preachers. These are men with character and backbone, who are standing up for Biblical principles and freedom of conscience.

"It's not only the time, but we're now seeing people respond," David said. "We're seeing pastors respond in a way we haven't seen. We have seen in the last few days, 40,000 pastors sign a petition that says, I will go to jail before I follow what the Supreme Court says if they get marriage wrong. They can do what they want to. 40,000 pastors, including one pastor with a 35,000-member church. And those are usually the guys that don't have the backbone, is the guys with the megachurches. We will not comprise on this. We will go to jail on this. But we're standing for the biblical definition of marriage."

Glenn Beck: THIS is why Biden nominated Merrick Garland as attorney general

Many will remember President Biden's attorney general nominee Merrick Garland as the man Republicans refused to hold a Supreme Court confirmation hearing for back in 2016. So, was Garland's AG nomination just meant to be a slap in the face to Republicans? Glenn Beck thinks there's a lot more to it.

Given how focused Democrats are on rooting out vaguely defined "right-wing extremism," Garland's work in supervising the prosecution of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing suspects gives us a hint, Glenn suggested on radio this week. He said he's "all for" stopping dangerous extremists, but couldn't help noticing how Garland isn't talking about any of the destruction that happened over the summer.

"I am all for justice. I am all for making sure we catch the bad guys, as long as the bad guys are not defined to be on only one side," Glenn said. "Merrick Garland said [Monday] that there was no comparison between what happened on January 6th and what happened over the summer. That is because the Washington elites see themselves as better than somebody who owns a taco stand. I don't. The Constitution doesn't. They are the same crime."

"All rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference," said holy anointed billionaire Bill Gates. Green activism has been around for decades. But what used to be wacky has now worked its way into the world's power structure. You must believe the science. You cannot question the science.

The Texas power failure provided America with a disturbing and deadly preview of the Great Reset. But Bill Gates, AOC, and other Democrats say this only proves we need to enforce MORE green policies.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck reveals how deep the Great Reset tentacles reach into government and business to strangle freedom and their efforts to control every aspect of your private life.

Why are we letting criminals out of prison while putting pastors in? Pastor James Coates of Canada's GraceLife Church was recently fined, arrested, and put in maximum security prison for violating lockdown rules.

Rebel News founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to discuss the story. Ezra said he's noticed a trend of government officials "picking on" Christians as "lockdownism" becomes almost a new kind of religion, and warned this might be just the start of more persecution to come.
