Bigoted Judges Shut Down 16-year-old Singer Purely Because of Her Beliefs

Penn Jillette showed this story to me when he joined my TV show Monday.

It's about a 16-year-old girl from Ecuador who was on one of those reality shows "Ecuador's Got Talent."

She sang and was pretty good.

Obviously being set up by the producers, the judges didn't comment or ask a single question about her singing. Instead, the only question was: "Do you believe in God?"

Now, I do, her father who was backstage clearly does and the judges apparently do. She does not.

Right after this song, this girl was asked the question and then lectured to about how she needed to believe in God. They all refused to send her forward because of her non-belief! They wanted to teach her a lesson that without God you will never make it.

I am so glad this didn't happen here as I don't think I could handle yet another crazy thing like this from Americans.

Put yourself in her shoes. Being humiliated on national TV for your belief. Do you think she went home and cracked open a bible and thought, "gee, someday I want to be just like those judges!"

"Man must learn, freedom goes both ways."

You are free to believe or not. You are free to be for Trump or Clinton or not. You are free to make all kinds of decisions I wouldn't make and I may disagree with, or not.

You have certain rights, at least here. And while we may not make the same choice, we still must live with each other.

I would hope any in America siding with the judges' reaction to her belief would consider this: Our founders took their own time to testify in court on behalf of those facing religious persecution at the hands of people who were either of the same faith or close to the same faith as the founders themselves.

When will we get to a time where we can live side by side with people who disagree with us?

When will we understand that humans come in all shapes, sizes and political and religious belief?

I believe her life would be better if she believed in a just and living God, and if one of the judges or all of them felt that way too, great.

Maybe to say that to her after the show, or even one of them making a comment on the show --- but to judge her solely on this and to grandstand for the applause is sad.

Do you think this is the best way to show others who Christians are?

The thing we have to remember is:

A: We don't want to be those people.

B: It is becoming harder and harder to be someone who worships God and really lives it. Do we want to be treated like this?

How would you feel if this was your daughter and she was passed by because she was Christian?

Do unto others, seems to be a pretty important idea.

I am grateful that this lesson came from another country as I am tired of seeing us on the news. But I'm sad for her and Christians in Ecuador and worldwide who now are reading stories all around the globe making us all look like these four judges.

Watch her face and I think you will feel the same.

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."
