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.

Far-left elites are using COVID to ‘reset’ America to socialism

Both Governor Newsom (California) and Governor Whitmer (Michigan) currently are being challenged by their state courts and governments for tyrannical policies issued during the COVID pandemic. And that's GREAT news because the 'Great Reset' continues to be pushed by far-left elites around the world…and Biden's team is in full support. Glenn explains how the Great Reset — a plan issued by the World Economic Forum — aims to use our current pandemic as a means to an end; they'll use COVID as an excuse to push 'stakeholder capitalism,' something similar to the economic system used today in China or the one used in 1930s Germany. Listen, as Glenn explains the TERRIFYING details to their plan…

Megyn Kelly UNCENSORED: It's Not Time to Unify, It's Time to FIGHT | Ep 88

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show." Now, Megyn and Glenn break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, Leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner … and is Fox News finished? Megyn and Glenn reminisce on their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with Donald Trump) and also give a look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. And the best takeaway from her time at NBC? "Jane Fonda was an ass."

How the downfall of socialist Yugoslavia is STRIKINGLY similar to America today

Glenn shares a now-viral video of a woman from Yugoslavia, who says she wants to warn Americans about what could become of our free nation soon. She details the history of her country and explains how leaders there used different tactics and phases to implement socialism so that they could gain total control. And, terrifyingly, the phases she describes are STRIKINGLY similar to the events and changes we've experienced in America over the past year.

Glenn SNAPS over Dem corruption: ‘It’s NOT OVER!’

Glenn has had enough of exposing scandal after scandal, just for everyone to look the other way: Benghazi, Hillary Clinton's emails, Joe and Hunter Biden's dealings in Ukraine and China...the list goes on, but no consequences are ever paid. So while the mainstream media has called the election for Joe Biden, and insists no one can question it, Glenn gives a rallying cry to conservatives. Many of the over 71 million people who voted for President Trump are split between frustration and an urge to do something. The multiple allegations of election fraud are largely out of our hands, and Donald Trump's legal team must be allowed to go through the process to ensure our voting systems are fair. But that doesn't mean we have to sit on our hands.
