The Philadelphia Eagles Are an Example to All of Us – Here’s Why

It’s refreshing to see people in the public eye who are open about their faith. Multiple team members from the Philadelphia Eagles have shared their commitment to Christianity by celebrating their baptism.

Wide receiver Marcus Johnson is the latest player to share his faith this way, tweeting a picture of himself being baptized at a hotel pool while surrounded by teammates.

In a sports world full of division, “one NFL team is quietly taking a different path,” Glenn said on today’s show. “This is becoming the new norm for the Eagles.”

Last year, five Philadelphia Eagles players were baptized at the team’s practice facility by team pastor and tight end Trey Burton.

GLENN: All right. We have a choice. We can talk about the latest with Colin Kaepernick and his lawsuit with the NFL. Or we can talk about a very different story with the NFL. A story that I think is much more important. One that probably is not going to gain an awful lot of coverage.

While the national anthem protests continue to dominate the headlines and create division, one NFL team is quietly taking a different path.

Oh, I hate to say this because Stu is such a fan of the Eagles. But the night before the Philadelphia Eagles game in Charlotte, several players gathered at the hotel's indoor swimming pool. They held hands, they prayed, while one of their teammates, wide receiver Marcus Johnson was baptized by a fellow player in the pool.

Now, apparently, this is becoming the new norm for the Eagles. A year ago, five other Eagle players were baptized in the recovery pool at the team's practice facility. Several players on the team are outspoken about their Christian faith. They say they have found strength and encouragement from fellow believers on the team.

More and more now the Eagles, teammates are attending weekly Bible studies at players homes and prayer sessions night before the games.

The quarterback, Carson Wentz openly discusses his faith. Some players have said they're not interested, yet no one on the team is excluded or pressured.

Colin Kaepernick seems to be allowing the anthem protests to define the narrative of his life. The anger that he felt about racial injustice that fueled his protests to begin with, is now boiling over into more anger and more blame.

However, maybe we should take note of the several Philadelphia Eagles players that are more interested in the message that you don't have to let your past, your mistakes, your bitterness, what you've done, what others have done to you, define your life, your story, and your narrative.

The Eagles seem to be doing something refreshing during these divisive NFL season. They have a different kind of bond. And a different kind of peace that will serve them well beyond the football field.

It is the bond of faith that teaches radical love and forgiveness. The only things that can truly reach across the racial and political divide.

Faith. Truth. Love. Forgiveness.

Protests have their place. But they don't have the power to heal a nation.

The Uvalde shooting & the REAL 'replacement' theory that threatens America

In the wake of the horrific Buffalo shooting, the left-wing media tried to paint all conservatives as subscribers to “replacement theory” — the idea that immigrants are taking over to such an extent that they will destroy white Western civilization. Of course, no serious conservative believes in this ugly, racist, dangerous ideology, but there is a ton of ACTUAL replacement going on, and it has nothing to do with immigration or racism.

What we saw yesterday in Uvalde, Texas, is more dark horrific evidence of the only replacement theory that ultimately matters because it affects everything. We’ve replaced God in society. Glenn argues it’s why gun control is ultimately useless — even though he completely understands our human impulse to DO something. While our culture has replaced God for rot, the Biden White House and Democrats are also working overtime to replace key elements of American political, legal, economic, and cultural life.

BlazeTV host Mark Levin of “LevinTV” tells Glenn why Media Matters' latest hit job on him over his Uvalde coverage is pathetic. “Stop pushing God out of the public square” is not a radical concept to help prevent evil from taking hold in our schools. He also takes on the Democrats’ attempts to destroy the Supreme Court, voting rights, and the separation of powers.

BlazeTV host Allie Beth Stuckey of “Relatable” tells Glenn why she believes the Uvalde shooting reveals how we are failing young men in this country and what we must do to stop the replacement theory that threatens to keep an entire generation from becoming a benefit to society.

The Washington Post forgot its OWN NAME

Apparently, self-awareness is in short supply in Washington. But we already knew that. The Washington Post must not have got the memo however. Their recent op-ed about the need for George Washington University to change its name can't be serious, though — can it?

'White Knights' ROB Black People of Their Honor | Ep 147

Two years after the death of George Floyd, are America and the black community actually better off? When Delano Squires first looked at Black Lives Matter’s principles, he realized that they weren’t at all what he believes in: nothing about God or families and plenty about the opposite. Now, as a contributor to BlazeTV’s "Fearless with Jason Whitlock" and a scholar at 1776 Unites, he’s unafraid to call it as it is: Leftists are robbing black people of their dignity and honor and treating them like children. Meanwhile, self-sufficient black men are painted as white supremacists. This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," Delano breaks down how far America has gone — in the wrong direction — since the riots of 2020 and why the abortion debate is a clear example. And he explains why faith in God, not the “Biden blackness” of the Democratic Party, is the true solution.

Was Elon Musk just RED PILLED?

It looks like Elon Musk was red-pilled yesterday. He came out and said he always voted for the Democrats, mainly because he thought they were the nice guys. Boy, did he wake up and he even said that he would be voting all Republican now. Elon, I would like to red pill you again. I wish we had faith in the Republican Party, but it's better than voting and pushing the garbage from the extreme radicalized left.
