Rick Perry: Evangelical Christians Need to Overwhelmingly Vote for Cruz

Monday on The Glenn Beck Program, former Texas Governor Rick Perry took issue with Donald Trump claiming to be a Christian, yet stating he'd never had to ask forgiveness for anything.

"I was standing offstage, next to go on to be introduced by Frank Luntz last summer in Iowa in front of a host of evangelical Christians," Gov. Perry said. "Frank Luntz asked Donald Trump, 'Have you ever asked God for forgiveness?' And he very matter-of-factly said, 'No, I've never done anything that I think I need to ask God for forgiveness for.'"

That notion completely flies in the face of salvation and grace.

"Glenn, if you're going to profess to be a Christian, which Mr. Trump does, but you do not understand in your mind intellectually or in your heart spiritually what salvation by grace means, then I got to stand up and say, 'Wait a minute. You really don't understand Christianity,'" Gov. Perry said.

 

Moreover, true Christian men honor and respect women.

Glenn pointed to a recent article from BuzzFeed that provides audio of Donald Trump, mostly on with Howard Stern, disparaging and speaking about women in the most objectifying and profane ways.

Here are Trump's "milder" comments on the actresses of Desperate Housewives in 2005:

Nicollette Sheridan was “solid four,” said Trump. “I liked the way she used to look.”

“Would you go out with Marcia Cross or would you turn gay, Howard?” said Trump, asking who he would date.

“She’s got a good body, just put a bag on her head,” replied Stern.

“Solid four to five,” added Trump on Cross.

And of Teri Hatcher, added Trump, “A six.”

“She’s really bouncy, really cute, she’s got beautiful skin,” Trump said of Eva Longoria.

Trump ranked her a seven.

This is the man evangelicals like Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson and Robert Jeffries are praising and even endorsing?

"If you're an evangelical Christian, if you are a supporter of our veterans, you need to go and you need to vote overwhelmingly for Ted Cruz," Gov. Perry. "He is the person that is going to take two checklists with him every day to the Oval Office. One is the Bible. And the other is the United States Constitution."

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.
