Survey: Millennials Don't Have a Clue About Religious Liberty

A new survey found that while nearly all millennials support religious freedom in the abstract, they are split about 50/50 on whether or not people should be able to live out their faith.

Glenn had the story on radio Tuesday.

“We need to find ways to shore up the Constitution and start teaching the Constitution,” Glenn reminded the audience, noting how educating the next generation in these fundamental freedoms is essential. “They will not rise up to protect or defend something [when] they don’t even know what it is.

Conducted in 2015, the survey found that 95% of millennials think religious freedom is important, the Deseret News reported. The survey respondents were then asked to examine these two statements and compare them:

There is a difference between a business serving people equally and forcing a business to participate in a ceremony that violates their religious beliefs. We should respect religious freedom of these people.

There is no difference between illegal discrimination and a business person refusing to provide services to a gay wedding ceremony for religious reasons. We should enforce anti-discrimination laws against these people.

Of those surveyed, 50% agreed with the first statement, while 49% chose the second one. Additionally, 58 percent of millennials agreed with the statement that religion “is personal and should not play a significant role in society.”

"Many people think that they are siding with the Constitution when they agree with statement number two. They're not. But they don't even know that," Glenn said.

GLENN: Yes. And that comes to this: New survey shows most millennials don't really know what religious liberty even means.

PAT: Oh, I believe that.

STU: Totally.

PAT: Wow. I believe that whole-heartedly opinion.

GLENN: Wait until you see this. We'll share that next.

And then, at the bottom of the hour, we go to Tom Doyle who has written a book called Standing In the Fire. It is about the Christians who are living in some of the most frightening times since probably the Dark Ages.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: And they are standing up in the Middle East. And Tom Doyle will tell us a little bit about these amazing people. Sponsor this half-hour is Goldline. Economics professor from Yale says what he's seeing in the market is the quiet before the storm. Now, yesterday, Greenspan came out and said, oh, you know, there's nothing to the stock market. That's all legitimate.

No, it's not. I mean, that's crazy. But he wants to warn people about the bond market. What the hell does that even mean? I'll tell you what it means, if you have a pension, your pensions are put into bonds. And the state or whoever is selling those bonds and then people buy them because they're like, oh, no, they'll last forever. This city will be around forever. It's going to be great. How about your investment in bonds? Your pensions are invested in bonds because they're, quote, safe. Well, there's a gigantic bubble that people have been warning about for about five years. When this bubble pops, it means your city, your state won't have the money in bonds -- remember, when humans said, oh, yeah, we want that school. Put a school bond out there. That means people bought that bond, believed you were good for it, and so that money was available. The minute that bond market goes down. That money is no longer available. Then what do you do? This is going to affect your city. This is going to affect your town. This is going to massively impact your future. Your 401(k). Your IRA. Your pension. God forbid, you have one. That's what this means.

When that happens, then what? Pat was telling us yesterday about a bank -- it was Citibank that came to him. I can't believe this is what they said. But, oh, you know what, the banks are going to release $4 trillion really soon. That's going to get the economy pumping. Is that what they said, Pat?

PAT: Yeah, it was Chase actually, but, yes. So I said, "Wow. $4 trillion released at the same time, probably not going to be good for the inflation rate." Oh, well, they're going to be really judicious about how strategic they are --

GLENN: Strategic. So within a minute -- within a minute, it was, they're going to release it all at one time. And it's really going to soup up the market. Pat said, inflation. Well, no.

PAT: No.

GLENN: Of course.

PAT: Because they're going to control the velocity.

GLENN: Yeah, of course, they are. Of course, they are. They always do.

PAT: Uh-huh.

Biden's Big Speech: The Glenn Beck & Mark Levin Rebuttal

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.

THE GLENN BECK PODCAST

Is 2022 Our Last Chance to Save America? | Victor Davis Hanson | Ep 105

Do you know where your water comes from? Renowned historian and conservative commentator Victor Davis Hanson gets his water from a well on his family farm. He pumps it himself. And he believes that's what more Americans need — to be grounded and stop taking so much for granted. Hanson joins Glenn to point out that this needs to happen soon, because as he describes in his new article, "The 10 Radical New Rules That Are Changing America," things are getting ... bleak. The Left is subverting the Constitution more every day. The value of the dollar is dropping. The media has fused with the radical Left. Corporations, Hollywood, Silicon Valley are all working together to increase their power and their wokeness. And academia isn't any better — as a senior fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution, Hanson has watched for himself the deterioration of constitutional rights on campus. And as a historian, he knows how all of this usually ends — and what we must do to prevent it.

Dollar Decimation: How Biden’s Spending Spree Will End Our Currency

If it feels like the U.S. government is spending money like it's going out of style, it's because it is.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes the TRUE state of our economy that the Biden administration doesn't want you to see. Obama kicked off a spending spree that was continued under the Trump administration, and now President Joe Biden will finally push us over the ledge with the $2.3 TRILLION "infrastructure" deal.

All signs point to a major economic disaster. And the perfect storm is brewing to convert the greenback into a new digital currency. Think Bitcoin, but with CENTRAL bank control, where we could see the end of private savings and private spending and your finances are tracked. Every time our money gets converted, your wallet will take the losses.

Emotions are high and regardless of how you interpret what happened that day between Derek Chauvin and George Floyd, the wounds are deep. Politics swooped in and took an event that horrified everyone and turned it into a team sport, only deepening the divide.
