Texas pastor comes under fire for hosting Glenn

Glenn will be joining the Fellowship Church on Sunday July 5th. They have been gracious enough to ask Glenn to share an Independence Day message at all of their services that weekend. But not everyone is excited about the event. Pastor Ed Young has come under fire for inviting Glenn, a Mormon, to speak at his megachurch. Glenn responded to the attacks with a powerful message of unity and love that members of ANY faith can appreciate. 

I want to point out a very brave man. Someone who's willingness to come under attack should be commended.

There are more and more everyday but it is not often you find one with this much to lose willing to take a beating for something he could easily avoid.

Ed Young is the pastor of fellowship church here in Texas. It is a family of churches that he shepherds from here in Texas to Florida and all the way to London.

He is currently taking a beating for inviting me to speak at his church all three sessions this weekend.

My topic is Gods role in American history and how we always rise to the occasion as we turn back toward God.

Those who wish to continue to divide Americans are attacking him on every front. Because in case you didn't know I am LDS.

I will go a step further just for the fun of the press:

I am a born again LDS Christian who teaches Gospel Doctrine in my church, speaks about God and Jesus more than any other mainstream radio or television host in the last 70 years, who also studies the Torah with rabbis on a regular basis and met today with the Dalai Lama.

Oh, I almost forgot, I was texting my atheist friend from the meeting with the DL. (that will drive them nuts)

I refuse to be put in a box. We all should. If everyone I know loves Jesus, I don't know enough people.

But that is not why Ed and brave men like him are being attacked.

Personally I think the rules for radicals that Saul Alinski taught in his book that was dedicated to lucifer, are alive and well on the fringes of faith.

Isolate and ridicule. It stops us from uniting. Abe Lincoln had it right, divided we fall.

All faith is under attack. It won't just hurt my church or yours. In the end it destroys all of us.

Darkness knows if we, the Children of the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob present a united front we can and will defeat any force on earth. If we are on Gods side who can stand against us?

I am NOT speaking about theology this weekend and I do not wish to do anything but strengthen people's faith in one God. The God of their understanding.

The God who established this nation and the God that is telling us if we turn our face to Him, He will heal our land.

I have met many wonderful people from many faiths. America is crying out to her pulpits. We need men of character, humility, love and fearless boldness.

Ed Young is one of those men.

I know this doesn't help Ed with his detractors, but I admire him for his willingness to link arms with others while remaining true to His beliefs and setting an example of how Christ would have is treat one another.

I hope his congregation knows how strong he is in his faith and doctrine. It is not a sign of weakness but a sign of strength and conviction in what you know and believe when you are not afraid of others. He knows who he worships and he knows his congregation. They are strong in the faith.

This is a man who is not hiding his light under a bushel. And when that happens the enemy can more easily see the target.

Please join me this weekend on line or in person at one of his many fellowship houses of worship. One service on Saturday and two on Sunday for America's day of independence.

It is humbling and an honor to stand with Ed and his wonderful congregation.

Btw: here is one story that does a fairly good job of playing down the middle.

The far left is tearing apart the social fabric of our country in the name of "progress." From its emphasis on government dependency, to the $15 minimum wage, to the embrace of Marxist Critical Race Theory in our schools, the Left is destroying our culture and way of life.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck spoke with Christopher Rufo, director of the Center on Wealth and Poverty, about the latest insane example of the Marxist lies destroying the minds of our kids: A New York school sent parents a "white identities" chart advocating for "white traitors" and "white abolitionists."

There is an all-out assault on the social fabric of our country. The kids are NOT all right. In the name of "progress," we're destroying their minds with Marxist lies. In the name of "safety," we're destroying their souls by keeping them locked down.

On his Glenn TV special this week, Glenn Beck takes on the national suicide that the Left is committing by destroying our culture and way of life and how it's also leading to actual suicide of our kids. Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.

With as much gas and oil as Texas has — and not to mention its own power grid — why in the world is Texas experiencing such bad power outages?

Center for Industrial Progress president and founder Alex Epstein joined "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" to lay out what he's found.

Alex said he believes the "fundamental" problem is "the insistence on using unreliable wind and solar energy instead of reliable energy from coal, nuclear, and natural gas." And soon, it may not be just Texas, as President Joe Biden pushes for 100% dependency on green energy nationwide. THAT is the "real lesson of Texas," he warned.

Disney actress Gina Carano was just the latest to be canceled for being vocally conservative — this time for making a Holocaust comparison. But on this week's episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," renowned Jewish historian Edwin Black explains how Gina's comparison wasn't exactly out of line: The second phase of the Holocaust, exclusion, "is like cancel culture."

Edwin Black is the son of Holocaust survivors and an investigative journalist with awards and best-selling books translated into 20 languages in nearly 200 countries. His book "IBM and the Holocaust" examines high tech's role in killing Jews during the Holocaust and what it can teach us about the dangers of Big Tech today.

Edwin has spent enough time in the media to see all of its warts (there are a lot). And he's speaking out about it and its role in ignoring history at our nation's peril. He told Glenn he believes our culture and our history are being erased. Our ideals are being censored and our values are being mocked.
