How Relevant Are Your Morals?

What kind of person are you? Would you violate standards of purity and decency? How about showing loyalty to a group of people? Could something make you betray them?

Wednesday on The Glenn Beck Program, Glenn and his co-hosts answered these questions and more to gauge their moral fortitude. How did they measure up?

Enjoy the complimentary clip above or read the transcript below.

GLENN: Okay. Well, we found out what kind of person -- let me ask you this, where did he say -- it was extremely relevant, extremely important for somebody who just violated the group, betrayed the group.

STU: Betrayed the group. Yeah, that's Pat.

GLENN: Yeah, that was relatively -- so when we're looking at right and wrong, we're going to use that as extremely relevant. Pat, just finished the survey in the break and then started reading us his results. So that's what we were going to do with you, Pat. So now we --

STU: Well, fans of the Pat and Stu Show will recognize this as we do a segment called Spoons every day, in which we taste-test some new crazy food. And Pat every day, while we're in the commercial before the segment airs, just starts eating the food so that we don't actually have the reaction or talk about it at all.

PAT: No, we still have the reaction.

JEFFY: We have the reaction.

PAT: I can share my reaction in a few moments.

STU: Right. But the whole point of the segment is to eat it -- because we can do it off the air and then just talk about it, if that's what we want to do. With the segment every day, it's supposed to be a live --

PAT: Well, it is what I want to do. It's not what you want to do, but it is what I want to do.

(laughter)

GLENN: Betraying the group. Extremely relevant, again. So, Stu, you agree with his -- the two or three questions that we did, or you would change them?

STU: No, I would change them. I was somewhat relevant on the loyalty and betray his or her group. Something disgusting, I just had slightly relevant.

GLENN: Okay.

STU: Denied his or her rights, extremely relevant.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: Whether or not people would be differently than others, I said very relevant. Whether or not some -- whether or not violated standards of purity and decency, I put slightly relevant for that. I think it's important.

GLENN: Slightly relevant?

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: If they, what? Wait. Wait. What was it?

STU: Violated standards of purity and decency. Because, I mean, I'm thinking about this as like, well, how do you treat that? Well, for example, speech. Is it important for me for someone -- when someone says something terrible --

GLENN: So you're looking at how to judge something right or wrong, and the guy who is bringing you the information is Milo.

STU: Right. And so I say -- like, it's slightly relevant what he's saying. But, I mean, overall, the principle of free speech would trump that for me.

So, like, it's relevant for me in whether I think -- and that's the thing like, again, I guess if you're talking moral right and wrong, I would judge his speech and do judge it negatively. Right?

GLENN: Right. So you're trying to judge something right or wrong, and the person who is bringing this to you is acting in an indecent and immoral way.

STU: So how am I --

GLENN: How are you deciding? Is that important?

STU: It comes to this every time I feel like in these tests.

GLENN: Yeah.

JEFFY: I know.

STU: I'm looking at that as, well, they should be treated equally regardless.

GLENN: All right. So you said slightly. Next one.

STU: Next, whether or not an action caused chaos or disorder. I would say very relevant. Whether or not someone was cruel, very relevant, I would say.

GLENN: Oh, that's interesting. Stop there because I want to -- stop there. When we come back. Yourmorals.org. Take the test. It's actually important for research. Yourmorals.org.

Bill O'Reilly: How corrupt media twisted Joe Biden Ukraine scandal onto Trump

Bill O'Reilly gives his take on whether or not President Trump DID promise or threaten the President of Ukraine for dirt on Joe Biden, and whether or not the action is grounds for impeachment. But O'Reilly explains that either way, the media has demonstrated its corruptness yet again by manipulating the story away from a scandal for Joe and Hunter, and towards a potential, rumored wrongdoing by Donald Trump.

The Fed, banks printing money to 'prevent' trouble: Recession WILL come soon

Glenn discusses the current state of the economy with author of "Zero Hour," Harry Dent. He says the federal reserve is still funding big banks daily to increase their excess reserve, signaling that something is wrong with the system. Dent says the banks printed money back in the 1930s to climb out of the Great Depression, which only created an aftershock that was even worse. Banks and the Fed are doing the same thing today, so will the coming economic crisis be worse than the 2008 recession? Economist Dent says it's possible, and that it could come as early as 2020.

Lessons from Bill and Monica: Trump, Biden, Obama, Ukraine, and corruption

Glenn says there's an important lesson we can all learn looking back on the Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky scandal: corruption should matter, no matter which political party is to blame. So why are Democrats and the media trying desperately to shame President Trump for alleged corrupt action, but ignoring Joe Biden's clear intention to help his son, Hunter, profit through foreign policy in the Ukraine? How do we fix such a double standard?
