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.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.

The crisis at the border continues to worsen, with the U.S. Border Patrol recently releasing some shocking statistics that illuminate just how bad the situation has become. But Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) is doing everything he can to prevent any additional unlawful crossings into the Lone Star State.

Abbott joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to describe recent action he has taken to ensure that those who do cross into Texas illegally know they came to the "wrong state."

After noting that both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris "have completely abandoned post as it concerns the Texas border," Abbott explained how "Texas is stepping up" to combat the flood of dangerous gangs and cartels, human traffickers and drugs he says are pouring into border communities.

"Beginning in March, I deployed a thousand Texas Department of Public Safety officers to the border. I deployed the National Guard to the border. And they made well over a thousand arrests of some of these criminals we talked about. They've apprehended more than 33,000 illegal immigrants coming across the border." Abbott said. "But because of the way the Biden administration has abandoned the border, we are now elevating our game. What I did yesterday, in response to more than a dozen counties along the border ... I granted their request for a disaster declaration," he added.

Abbott went on to describe how his disaster declaration gives Texas the authority to toughen penalties for lawbreakers, including criminal trespassing, smuggling, and human trafficking.

"We're going to begin arresting everybody coming across the border and charging them with criminal trespass and putting them in jail. They are coming in here, thinking they'll get the Biden free-ride, and go wherever they want to go. Not in the state of Texas. We'll start arresting them right and left, and putting them behind bars, and saying they came in to the wrong state."

Asked by Glenn if he is prepared for the inevitable "media onslaught", Abbott simply answered, "We're prepared to see a reduction in the number of people coming across the border — because Texas is enforcing the law, period."
