Max Lucado: Shouldn't We Demand a President Be Decent?

Max Lucado, pastor and bestselling author, joined The Glenn Beck Program for the first time ever. It seems to be a time for firsts in America --- Glenn's first presidential endorsement, as well as the Christian Posts' first comments on politics urging Christians to "back away" from Donald Trump. Now, another Christian voice is speaking out for the first time to sound the warning bell about Donald Trump.

"Max Lucado is just an amazing pastor and Christian apologist. He is also a great author. He's the pastor of Oak Hills Church in San Antonio, Texas, where he's been there since I think the 1980s. He does not speak out about politics. This is an exception for him. He's a quiet, soft-spoken Christian who I have an awful lot of respect for," Glenn said.

In a recent article published in the Washington Post --- Trump Doesn't Pass the Decency Test" --- Pastor Lucado asks, "Policy aside, shouldn't we all demand that our president at least be decent?"

Glenn asked what was on his heart that would drive him to write and publish such an article.

"I think I just reached a breaking point. I believe that, as a pastor, that the presentation of the message of Christ and the Christian hope is absolutely essential. It's changed my life, and it's changed the life of millions around the world. And to see Mr. Trump hold up a Bible one day and then call somebody a bimbo the next or call himself a Christian and then make fun of a handicapped reporter or someone's menstrual cycle, continually --- it just troubled me, Glenn," Lucado said.

"Last Sunday, I was awake especially early getting ready for church services, and I felt like I came to a sense of clarity on what I needed to say. And it was all built around the word "decency," that regardless of what you think about a candidate's policies, they need to represent our country in a decent fashion. And I just felt like if Mr. Trump calls himself a Christian, his words should reflect that. I understand all of us stumble and all of us say things that we regret. But Mr. Trump, it just seems like he's taking it to a new level. So I spoke out."

Pastor Lucado's article is a must-read. Decency matters --- and our president should be an example of that.

President Joe Biden just had the worst-rated week in the entire first year of his presidency, but his latest poll numbers are the icing on the cake, Bill O'Reilly told Glenn Beck on the radio program.

Given that polls aren’t always correct, O’Reilly explained another way to prove that Biden's first year may be worse than any other president's before him: It’s impossible to name one single contribution Biden has made to move America forward.

"Biden: There isn't anything you can point to. Not one thing ... that he's done to improve the nation. That's the test. You just step back, take emotion out of it, politics out of it, and say, give me one thing that Joe Biden has done to improve the country. Just one. And you can't do it," O'Reilly said. "And if there is, I want your listeners to contact me at BillO'Reilly.com."

A recent report from Rolling Stone details a public letter sent to Spotify — signed by "270 physicians and scientists" — demanding that the platform implement a "misinformation policy" in response to Joe Rogan's recent interview with Dr. Robert Malone on “The Joe Rogan Experience.”

"This is absolute fascism," Glenn Beck said on the radio program. "There is no safe space. They're coming after talk radio. They're coming after our podcasts. They're coming after our websites."

Glenn said this is this is just one more example of the left's crackdown on freedom of speech and further prove of their ongoing fight against free thinkers or anybody who wants to have an open conversation that may include ideas contrary to what they believe.

There is no transparency when it comes to the Biden administration, and Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz's recent exchange with the FBI’s Jill Sanborn is just another example. When questioned about alleged involvement the FBI had on January 6, 2021, Sanborn refused to answer almost every single time.

Do our government officials still work for us? Take a look at the latest headlines: The DOJ and U.S. Army are preparing for possible conflicts with "domestic terrorists," Biden's education secretary allegedly requested the NSBA letter that suggested treating upset parents like domestic terrorists, and President Biden said if you're not with him on the Democrats' voting bills, then you're with the Confederacy. Meanwhile, the FBI won't tell Congress whether it was involved in the the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and the corporate media insists that there's nothing to see here, especially concerning Ray Epps.

The American people are concerned, and it’s "extraordinarily disturbing" how far the federal government goes to avoid answering our questions, Glenn Beck said on the radio program. There's a very odd growing trend here: Our leaders, including the unelected ones, no longer answer to the people. This must stop now.

"The question that I have is, where is the transparency? And is anyone going to be held accountable? They are not afraid of our senators. They are not afraid of Congress," he stated. "This has got to stop. They have got to answer to the law. This is an oversight committee. Who is in charge, the FBI or the people? Once the people are not in charge and are not allowed to see the secret documents, we are toast. Toast!"
