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."

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."

Joe Biden's administration is getting ready for something historic, but we're all being distracted. And now that Biden has hired at least 14 former or current executives from Big Tech — experts at colluding to censor unflattering news about Biden — Americans must be laser-focused on what's coming.

On January 20, the most corrupt president in American history will be inaugurated, and it looks like some of his cabinet choices were picked specifically so everything just – poof – goes away. The administration nominees appear to be all about preserving corruption, crony capitalism, and executing a Great Reset. Those same people also have one more thing in common: Ukraine.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn exposes their radical agenda in their own words and gives U.S. senators the questions they must ask before confirming corrupt nominees to some of the highest offices in the country.
