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.

CONTROL FREAKS: The Great Reset Overlords Who Will Ru(i)n Your Life

"All rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference," said holy anointed billionaire Bill Gates. Green activism has been around for decades. But what used to be wacky has now worked its way into the world's power structure. You must believe the science. You cannot question the science.

The Texas power failure provided America with a disturbing and deadly preview of the Great Reset. But Bill Gates, AOC, and other Democrats say this only proves we need to enforce MORE green policies.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck reveals how deep the Great Reset tentacles reach into government and business to strangle freedom and their efforts to control every aspect of your private life.

Dr. Ben Carson's Prescription to Heal America | Ep 98

To the Left, "unity" means "destroy everyone we disagree with." But Dr. Ben Carson has another message: "We are not each other's enemies." As the Biden administration insists America is systemically racist, Dr. Carson's life proves just how far we've come. Despite facing poverty as a child, he became a renowned neurosurgeon, a candidate for president, and former secretary of Housing and Urban Development — one of the only Cabinet members to survive all four years of the Trump administration.

He joins Glenn to review his time in the administration, including as part of the White House's coronavirus task force, and how he discovered "the swamp is deeper and wider than I expected." But above all, he urges Americans to take courage and stand for our freedoms — and previews his newest venture to do just that as founder and chairman of the American Cornerstone Institute: "What version of America do we want?"

Unmasking the OTHER Deadly Pandemic: What's Killing Our Kids

There is an all-out assault on the social fabric of our country. The kids are NOT all right. In the name of "progress," we're destroying their minds with Marxist lies. In the name of "safety," we're destroying their souls by keeping them locked down.

On his Glenn TV special this week, Glenn Beck takes on the national suicide that the Left is committing by destroying our culture and way of life and how it's also leading to actual suicide of our kids. Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.

IBM's Role in Killing Jews & Lessons for Big Tech | Edwin Black | Ep 97

Edwin Black is the son of Holocaust survivors and an investigative journalist with awards and best-selling books translated into 20 languages in nearly 200 countries. His book "IBM and the Holocaust" examines high tech's role in killing Jews during the Holocaust and what it can teach us about the dangers of Big Tech today.

Edwin has spent enough time in the media to see all of its warts (there are a lot). And he's speaking out about it and its role in ignoring history at our nation's peril.

He also discusses Disney actress Gina Carano, fired for comparing conservative persecution to the Nazi treatment of the Jews. Our culture is being erased. Our ideals and values are being censored and mocked. Our history is being erased. With another human extermination on the horizon in China, Edwin challenges this with bravery.
