GLENN: I'm going to be real honest with you. Pat and I were having a conversation yesterday, and Pat wondered about my spirituality, I think. That's what you were questioning, really, Pat. Yeah, no, that's what it was, and I'm going to be real honest with you.
PAT: No, it wasn't.
GLENN: I am cheating on Tania.
GLENN: And I'm okay with it.
GLENN: The world makes no sense. I'm going to continue to cheat on Tania.
STU: Do you want to clarify that before there's 5,000 news stories about it?
GLENN: What do you mean? I'm cheating on her.
STU: Okay. Good. It's out there. I guess you can run with it, guys. He's not clarifying.
PAT: Is there another woman in your life?
GLENN: Oh, no, no, no, not with another woman. Netflix. I'm watching shows that she thinks we're watching together, and I'm watching ahead.
PAT: And you're watching ahead? Wow. Wow.
GLENN: And I'm watching ahead. And then I pretend that I haven't seen the episode that --
STU: That you're not watching together. Now, again, do you want to clarify? Because that's much worse than you being with another woman. That is actually a bigger violation in a relationship.
PAT: Right. It's a more egregious --
JEFFY: It sure feels that way some days. That's for sure.
GLENN: It does. Are you cheating on your wife too?
PAT: It does.
JEFFY: I do. But it's hard to fake after you've watched an episode because as soon as you look down at your phone to Twitter, during the episode that you've already watched, but you're both watching it together --
GLENN: Uh-huh. Uh-huh.
JEFFY: -- and, you've already seen this!
GLENN: I can't take it.
Because, honestly, I've given up. And she -- we're in an open marriage. She knows. She knows.
STU: Well, then you're not cheating on her.
PAT: Yes. She knows you're watching ahead though. She knows it.
GLENN: She knows I'm watching ahead. Here's why: We were watching, I don't remember what it was, Gotham.
And she said -- and we were like on episode three of season one. All right?
And she's like, "I really want to watch that." I said, "Okay. Okay."
So we start watching it, and all the way through, I'm doing this: Honey, are you awake? Honey, are you awake?
Yes, yes, I'm awake.
Okay. All right. No, you're not.
Yes, I am! I'm awake! I'm watching. You want to quiz me on what just happened?
No, no, I just want to make sure you're awake.
Then five minutes later, body is twitching, she's (snoring).
Honey, are you awake?
Yes! I'm awake. Okay? I'm awake. I'm watching it. Just leave me alone.
PAT: So you just watched it by yourself?
GLENN: So here's what happened: I finished the episode because every time I said something she was asleep. Then the next day after she wasn't tired and she had food in her belly because she is hangry like crazy, she said, "Okay. I fell asleep last night." I'm like, "No!"
"Yeah, I fell asleep last night. So can we try to watch it again tonight? We'll watch it again tonight."
So she's zipping through, "Okay. I've seen that. I've seen that. I've seen that."
Twenty minutes into it, "Okay. I haven't seen any of that. So go back by five minutes. All right." So we start watching.
Within ten minutes, "Honey, are you awake?"
"Yes, I'm awake."
Three times I watched the same damn episode, not counting the time I cheated on her. So it was my fourth time watching the episode! It's just -- I'm not watching it with you anymore. I'm not watching anything with you anymore.
STU: That's really the answer. Right? I mean, TV is, you don't need to watch -- you don't need another person to watch television with. You can do that on your own.
GLENN: But I want to watch it with Tania.
JEFFY: Yeah, some of the episodes your spouse feels like they want to share the experience.
GLENN: Like what? What show is she -- what show does she want to experience with you?
JEFFY: Oh, well, we watch specific network shows that we DVR together. Now, so the Netflix shows, I can just binge. I'm gone. Have a nice day.
But then there are specific ones that we watch, you know, on our own time.
GLENN: What is this network thing you're talking about?
JEFFY: You know, those channels --
GLENN: I don't even watch television anymore.
STU: Yeah, Jeffy only watches television when it's on. That's the only time he watches it.
GLENN: You know what, Netflix and Amazon and even HBO have totally destroyed --
JEFFY: Yeah, Hulu too. They've started to create their own content and it's good stuff.
GLENN: You watch television now, you watch Netflix or Amazon, you know which ones are on network television. Because I don't watch network television so I don't know -- I don't know what's on. I don't know what's coming from a network and not. And you can watch it, and immediately, you're like, network.
JEFFY: Oh, yeah.
GLENN: They look different. They're bad. They're bad.
PAT: Yeah. On this cheating, they just did this study --
GLENN: On the Netflix cheating?
PAT: Yeah, on the Netflix cheating. There's an actual survey. People believe it's a real thing. They're serious about it. This is almost worse than actually cheating with a member of the opposite sex, or same sex, depending on your preference.
GLENN: I so agree with Maxine Waters today.
PAT: They said 46 percent of couples have cheated on each other. 46 percent.
STU: On Netflix.
PAT: On Netflix, yeah.
GLENN: Oh, my gosh. May I take a sidebar, Your Honor?
STU: Sure. Go ahead.
GLENN: Did you see the James Barna study that came out on biblical worldview?
PAT: No, I didn't see it.
GLENN: Okay. You don't remember who James Barna is, James Barna is the big pollster that does -- most of the religious, cultural religious stuff.
STU: Been on the show, right?
GLENN: Yeah, been on the show.
So he was a little confused by the last election. Now, he's a guy who goes in -- and all he studies is religious people.
And the -- the last survey he took, I think it was like 55 percent of the American people said they have a Biblical worldview, which means they view -- you want to understand how they see the world, you understand the Bible, and that's the lens that they see everything through
PAT: Is this in the US? Only 55 percent?
GLENN: 55 percent. That was the last one. He was confused by the last election. And he was like, "Where is the biblical worldview for 55 percent?"
GLENN: And so he goes back and does another study. This study just came out, 49 percent now say they have a Biblical worldview.
PAT: It went down 6 percent how fast?
GLENN: But wait, there's more.
GLENN: But he did something he's never done before: He said, let me ask you biblical questions. Do you believe that Noah -- do you believe Moses? Do you believe Jesus? Do you believe all these stories? Okay? Yes, yes, yes. 49 percent now say, yes, I believe those stories are true. All right. Only 49 percent.
However, he added the traits that go with it. So if you agree that the Moses story is true, he threw in cultural questions about stealing, about lying, about --
PAT: Smart. That's really -- that's good.
GLENN: All right. So do you live any of those things?
So out of the 49 percent, only 15 percent actually have a Biblical worldview. Fifteen here in the United States.
PAT: Fifteen percent follow through with their standards.
GLENN: Fifteen percent follow through with their standards in America.
GLENN: And here's the other fun fact: Millennials, 4 percent.
PAT: Oh, I -- I believe that.
GLENN: Four percent.
PAT: That's not good. Not good.
GLENN: Yeah. Yeah. Yeah.
STU: I'm not surprised that number is worse, but the number is bad all the way around.
PAT: Really bad.
STU: I mean, we talked about this too. In 2011, 30 percent of evangelicals felt elected officials who committed immoral acts could fulfill public duties. You could even, you shouldn't even be in office.
GLENN: But I wonder if that was like the Barna thing. Now put them -- you know, put Bill Clinton back in the '90s, but make him a Republican, I wonder if they would have felt the same way.
STU: Well, I can give you an answer to that because in 2011, 30 percent of evangelicals felt elected officials who committed immoral acts could fulfill public duties. in 2016, it was 72 percent.
PAT: My gosh.
STU: From 30 to 72. And that's -- that has to do -- those opinions are just moved on whatever the events of the day are, right?
PAT: Is that brimstone I'm hearing land on the roof?
STU: It did start to rain, and it is heavy.
GLENN: I don't know exactly what brimstone is. But maybe.
JEFFY: You're going to find out soon enough.
PAT: I'm hearing it on the roof. Wow.
GLENN: That's amazing. It shows how out of step, quite honestly, we are. We try to live our life that way. We don't always succeed. But we try to live our life that way. And I think a good portion, not Jeffy --
PAT: Oh, yeah.
GLENN: I think a good portion of this audience tries to live their life that way.
STU: And like, obviously, you can look at that and say, wow, 72 percent is really high to believe that. But I'm more fascinated by the change, right?
PAT: Oh, yeah. The change is astounding. That's only six years.
STU: Five, yeah.
GLENN: So I have to tell you -- let me take a quick break. I have to tell you about this conversation I had with Raphe this weekend, which was horrifying to me.
STU: Your son. Oh, no.
GLENN: No. It wasn't -- I bet -- I bet all of our children, if they're that age, will kind of have -- you'll have the same kind of conversation. And here's the thing: I don't know how to correct it. And it's a conversation all of us should be having with our kids right now. But the world is changing so fast under our feet. I don't even know -- I don't even know how to talk about this with him.
