Glenn Asks Callers How They'd Feel About Cruz Endorsing Trump

Now that Trump has become the presumptive Republican nominee, Glenn wondered Friday on The Glenn Beck Program where Cruz stands on voting for or endorsing Trump.

"I would hope he would say, 'I can't do it. Each of you can make up your own mind, but I can't do that,'" Glenn said.

Curious about listeners thoughts on the topic, Glenn posed the question to several who called. They quickly dispelled any doubts he might have had.

Linda in California

"I would feel so betrayed after contributing specifically to his campaign and talking to people about him and trying to get their vote. I'm in California. We haven't had our say yet, but I can't vote . . . I would feel so betrayed. I just couldn't function. I just couldn't function."

Greg in Indiana

"I would be . . . I would be disappointed, Mr. Beck. But on the other hand, I cannot judge. And that is his constitutional right. ...I would be disappointed."

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

Gail in New Jersey

"I would be absolutely astounded. That's not who he is. Absolutely astounded. It would absolutely say, he deceived me, absolutely. But I would still be with my principles of the Ten Commandments that was a gift from God, and I would look for somebody else who could be a representative of his, to fight back. Because it's not the man. It's the Ten Commandments which was a gift from God that I support. And that's how I live my life."

Patty in Connecticut

"I think Senator Cruz being the principled, honest man of integrity, very deep principles that he lives by and he rules his whole life involved in, he will never do that because he couldn't live with himself because he couldn't be true to himself because he is the principled, honest man. And I don't think he would ever vote for Donald Trump or endorse him because he doesn't see him as good for the country or the world. The American people, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights and everything Senator Cruz fights for every single day is in complete contrast with every single thing Donald Trump stands for."

Mike in Georgia

"There's no way that I feel that Ted Cruz would support Donald Trump. He's just such a man of character. My first and I first saw Ted at Restoring Love. And we were finally hopeful that it was somebody we could finally vote for. And when I got home from work yesterday, there was a prerecorded message I got from Ted thanking us for all the support, for the donations, for everything that we'd done, and not for him, but for the country. It just shows the character of the man that we were hoping to elect."

Kim in Illinois

"I'm kind of at that point where I'm standing on the edge. And if he were to endorse Donald Trump, I just think that would be just the push I needed, you know, just to go on over the edge . . . I'm not sure. But I just . . . with Cruz's principles, I mean, that was the whole reason why I was all in for him. And if he decided to endorse Donald Trump, I would question everything."

On Monday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn opened up about the tragic death of his brother-in-law, Vincent Colonna Jr., who passed away unexpectedly on April 5. He also shared some of the important thoughts and insights he's learned through the grieving process.

"Last Monday, I was sitting in this chair ... the two-minute warning comes and Stu said to me, 'You ready for the show?'' ... And that's when my wife [Tania] came to the door of the studio here at our house and said, 'I...' and she held the phone up. And then she collapsed on the floor in tears," Glenn began. "Tania's brother had passed. To say this was a shock, is an understatement."

Glenn described his brother-in-law as having "a servant's spirit."

"He was always the guy who lit up the room. He was always the guy helping others. He would never stop, because he was always helping others," Glenn said of Vincent. "He was on the school board. He was a little league coach. He was the soccer coach. He helped build the church. He took care of the lawn of the church. He was constantly doing things, raising money for charity, working over here, helping to organize this. But he was never the guy in the spotlight. He was just the guy doing it, and you had no idea how much he had done because he never talked about it.

"We also didn't know how much mental anguish he was in because he never talked about it. And last Monday morning, after spending Easter with the family ... he killed himself. This is now the third family member of mine that has gone through this. And I keep seeing it play out over and over and over again, in exactly the same way."

Glenn described his thoughts as he, Tania, and her family struggled to come to grips with the devastating loss.

"I learned some really important things as I was watching this wake. I'm seeing these people from all walks of life ... the people that were there, were there because [Vince] made a difference in their life. He was a true servant. As I'm watching this, all that kept going through my mind was, 'by their fruits, ye shall know them.' The fruits of his labor were on display. He was a servant all the time. All the time ... he found a way to love everybody.

"There are two great commandments: Love God with all your heart and mind and soul. And love your neighbor. So those two great commandments boil down to: Love truth. Because that's what God is," Glenn said.

"Love thy neighbor. That's where joy comes from. The opposite of joy is despair, and that is the complete absence of hope ... and how do you find joy? You find joy by rooting yourself in the truth. Even if that's a truth you don't want to accept. Accept the truth," he added. "But we have to stop saying that there's nothing we can do. What are we going to do? Well, here's the first thing: stop living a lie."

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

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!"
