Rubio's Christian Themed Ad... Too Religious?

Marco Rubio put out an ad that some are saying might be too religious. Glenn played the ad during his radio program Thursday and asked his co-hosts what they thought about it.

"It's essentially proselytizing," Pat said.

Glenn begged to differ.

"It's not proselytizing," Glenn said. "He is saying, as Christians, this is the way we're supposed to behave."

He went on to ask how they would react if Glenn were to---hypothetically---run for president and say something like that about his faith.

"So I may not be electable," Glenn began. "But you don't think---I think it would be important. If you're trying to judge who I am and what's going to dictate on how I make decisions, yes. The gospel of Jesus Christ and my adherence to the laws of the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, are absolutely going to play a role."

Watch the ad and share your thoughts in the comments section below.

Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it might contain errors.

GLENN: Marco Rubio put out an ad that is very, very religious. And we want to play the ad and listen to what MSNBC had to say about this ad. And I want you to listen to it and then tell me what you think. Here it is.

VOICE: Yeah, so Senator Rubio is emphasizing his Christian faith. Joe mentioned the ad. Here it is, the new ad from Marco Rubio.

VOICE: Yeah.

MARCO: Our goal is determining the ability to live alongside our creator for all time, to accept the free gift of salvation offered to us by Jesus Christ.

The struggle on a daily basis as a Christian is to remind ourselves of this, the purpose of our life is to cooperate with God's plan. To those who much has been given, much is expected. And we will be asked to account for that. Were your treasures stored up on earth or in heaven? And to me, I try to allow that to influence me in everything that I do.

PAT: Wow. I mean, that is --

GLENN: What is wrong with that?

PAT: I'm not saying anything is wrong with it. It's just an unusual political ad. It's proselytizing. It's essentially proselytizing.

GLENN: It is. But maybe it shouldn't be.

No, it's not. Wait a minute.

PAT: I don't think it's constitutional.

GLENN: Hang on just a second. Wait. I know that. But it's not proselytizing. He is saying, as Christians, this is the way we're supposed to behave.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: And I let that influence me. He is saying what he is, not what you should be. What he is. And if you don't like what he is, then you shouldn't vote for him. Personally, I have no problem. I would be saying that.

Pat, if I was running for president of the United States, you don't think I would get up -- now, I may not be electable.

STU: May not. May not be electable. That was funny.

GLENN: Donald Trump.

STU: Great point.

GLENN: So I may not be electable. But you don't think -- I think it would be important. If you're trying to judge who I am and what's going to dictate on how I make decisions, yes. The gospel of Jesus Christ and my adherence to the laws of the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, are absolutely going to play a role. That's how I try to live my life.

PAT: Yes. I mean, you're preaching to the choir here, and you know that. But it's just an unusual way to go about it because it stands out so strongly.

GLENN: Right.

PAT: I'm not saying it's right or wrong. It's just different.

GLENN: It is very different.

PAT: And jarring.

POLL: Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

Just one day after Hamas’s surprise attack on Israel, which left over 1,400 people Israelis dead, 34 different student groups from Harvard University wrote a joint statement pinning the blame of Hamas' terrorist attack on Israel. In the following days after publishing this callous statement, these students staged a walkout and rallied in support of the Palestinians. As Glenn has discussed, this is not an isolated event, and campuses across the country have hosted similar rallies where antisemitic jargon like "we don't want no Jew state" and "globalize the intifada" is freely spewed.

Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

While the Universities have not officially backed any of these rallies or student groups that organized them, they haven't stopped them either, which raises the question: should they? On one hand, these are American students in American Universities, who are protected by the First Amendment. On the other hand, history tells us how dangerous antisemitism is if left unchecked; and what of the rights of Jewish students to be safe on the campuses they pay to attend? Let us know what you think in the poll below:

Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests? 

Would you feel safe if your child attended a University that allowed pro-Hamas protests?

 Should Universities allow pro-Israel protests?

Is pro-Hamas rhetoric protected by the First Amendment?

POLL: What do YOU think Israel should do about Gaza?

Should Israel take over Gaza after defeating Hamas? This contentious historical question has resurfaced amid Israel's retaliatory airstrikes in Gaza following Hamas' terror attacks, which resulted in the greatest death of Jews since the Holocaust. Biden and the global elites have warned Israel against occupation of the Palestinian territory. When asked on 60 Minutes if he would support the Israeli occupation of Gaza, Biden said, “I think it would be a big mistake.” Today Glenn responded to Biden’s answer: “I don't think it's a mistake to occupy."

This has been a long-standing, polarizing issue that is now more relevant than ever, and we want to hear YOUR thoughts. Let us know in the poll below:

Would you support an Israeli occupation of Gaza?

Do you think the Israeli airstrikes in Gaza are justified?

Do you think a two-state solution is still possible?

Funding IRAN?! Here are the TOP 5 reasons Joe Biden should be IMPEACHED

On September 12th, the House announced an official impeachment inquiry into Joe Biden with allegations of abuse of power, obstruction, and corruption. Naturally, the media quickly jumped to the President’s aid claiming that “there is no evidence to support these claims” and that the whole affair is a witch hunt.

If you’ve been listening to Glenn, you know that this is simply not the case. Biden has been committing impeachment-worthy deeds before he even stepped foot into the Oval Office—there’s no shortage of evidence to justify this inquiry. Here are 5 scathing reasons why Biden should be impeached:

He was responsible for the Afghanistan withdrawal disaster.

The Biden administration began with the US's disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan. Under his watch, Biden left thousands of US citizens and allies stranded in the Taliban's hostile regime. Countless Afghan allies have been murdered by the Taliban due to the Biden administration's negligence.

He was involved with Hunter Biden's illicit foreign business dealings.

There is clear evidence that Joe Biden was more than aware of his son Hunter's foreign business dealings. From suspicious money laundering through the Biden family's accounts to Joe's involvement with important business meetings within Hunter's company, there is mounting evidence to warrant an impeachment inquiry.

He lied about his involvement with Hunter's business dealings.

Not only did Biden involve himself with his son's less-than-legal foreign business ventures, but he lied to the American people about it too, claiming he had NO KNOWLEDGE of what was going on.

He failed to protect the Southern border, and actively made it worse.

Biden singlehandedly turned the Southern border into the worst illegal immigration crisis in US history. He reversed many policies set in place by the Trump administration, resulting in 2.3 million illegal immigrants flooding into the US under his watch, a historic high.

Biden reversed the Trump-era policy that halted all funds going into Iran. The Wall Street Journal revealed the smoking-gun evidence proving that Iran trained AND funded Hamas before its gruesome terror attacks against Israel. Moreover, shortly before the attacks, the Biden administration unfroze $6 BILLION dollars of Iran's assets as a part of a prisoner swap. On top of this, Biden resumed $200 million worth of "humanitarian aid" to Gaza that Trump had ended—because the money was being used to buy weapons for Hamas.

From groceries to house prices, everything seems to get more expensive, and you can thank Biden for that. Glenn recently exposed the truth about 'Bidenomics' and the havoc it has wrought on the American economy. Here are five economic milestones during the Biden administration that expose the glaring track record of "Bidenomics:"

In July 2022, the inflation rate hit 9.1 percent, a 40-year record high.

In June 2022, gas hit an all time record high of $5 a gallon for the national average.

61 percent of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck as of this September.

Interest rates reached a 15-year high at 5.25 percent and are still increasing.

Americans have $1 trillion in collective credit card debt, in part due to food/staple pieces being very high.
