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.

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
