Why does Glenn Beck hate Jesus?



Scott Baker from Breitbart TV

GLENN: Now, I have to tell you there are several people that help this program out. In research there are people that work around the clock. Literally they have worked around the clock doing research on things different times of the year. Scott Baker is one of those guys from Breitbart TV and, Scott, you were when did I e mail you? About eight weeks ago or so about a new advisor on the president?

BAKER: Yeah, you, I think it was maybe six, eight weeks ago saying, you know, Jim Wallis. And I didn't know him personally.

GLENN: Right.

BAKER: But I've heard him speak and I had 25 years of watching him. And so I knew exactly what your areas of concern would be. It was very clear to me.

GLENN: It doesn't, it doesn't take a genius.

BAKER: Yeah.

GLENN: Although he has cloaked himself so very well into, into just a, oh, he's just a spiritual advisor for the president.

BAKER: I think it's kind of like, you know, you've talked about this on your programs before, that there seems to be a new marching order for progressives. You know, it's like we're not going to sell this stuff if we look like hippies, right?

GLENN: Yeah, yeah.

BAKER: And so it's like dress it up, put the suit on, slick it up.

GLENN: Van Jones.

BAKER: Exactly.

GLENN: Van Jones, he is an avowed communist and yet nobody will ask him that question and if they did, I can guarantee who would say, "Look, I'm a green jobs guy."

BAKER: Right.

GLENN: I am looking for social justice.

BAKER: Right.

GLENN: I think this economy is out of control. I mean, capitalism, it's not working the way it's running right. That's the way he will answer it. And it happened strangely all at once with all of these radicals. They all of a sudden decided to change their language, independently. Am I wrong?

BAKER: No, I think you are absolutely right. I think they did and, you know, Jim Wallis is a very effective spokesman for his set of ideas. And I did ask him, by the way. I interviewed him on Friday for about 40 minutes and I said, what do you, what do you call yourself? Are you a Christian Marxist or something? And he's like, "I'm not left, I'm not right. Don't go liberal, don't go conservative. Go deeper." Right? That's sort of his

GLENN: Deeper? Deeper?

BAKER: Mantra.

PAT: Oh, please.

GLENN: And you know what? Jim, I want you to know this is not a personal attack on you. I really don't care about you or your church or anything else. You know, I don't, I don't mind if anybody goes to a church that I don't go.

BAKER: Right.

GLENN: I'm not trying to, you know, change your mind or anything. I just want an open and honest conversation happening in America.

BAKER: Right.

GLENN: And that's not what you want. That's not what your ilk wants. You hide. And if you had the courage of your conviction, you would Stott bearing false witness against your brother and you would actually just say what you mean and mean what you say. That's what Jesus did. That's, of course you know, you don't want to take the chance that you might lose. Jesus was crucified because he said what he meant and meant what he said.

BAKER: I wait. I thought Glenn Beck hated Jesus? That's what I saw in Time magazine.

GLENN: I know. That's amazing. So I don't want to talk about him because

BAKER: Can I give let me give you just one because when you said that phrase

GLENN: You're dieing.

BAKER: bearing false witness.

GLENN: Yeah.

BAKER: Well, no, it's like, you know, a horse in the gates ready to go.

GLENN: Yeah, I know.

BAKER: And I know you want to keep your focus on healthcare but I'm telling you there is a lot to get here.

GLENN: Oh, I know.

BAKER: And it's not peripheral stuff. This is when I heard you talking to the mother of the girl at Wheaton College last week, Wheaton College was my college and these debates were big debates for us back when we were at school in the Eighties. And when she was talking about kind of that feeling of the loss of her daughter, what happened to this bright girl that went off and now has kind of bought into this. That's what I used to think when I was there and I would see the people rallying and all this kind of stuff. How are you people buying this crap? You know, and so here when I and I sent that phrase bearing false witness to you because that's what I tried to press on outside of all these issues to say there may be people that are less religious, that don't follow the debates about social justice and all of that, that might not know what Glenn Beck was talking about. But if there's anybody in America who really does know exactly what Glenn Beck is talking about, it would be Jim Wallis. He knows that for a century there's been debates in Christianity about social gospels and personal gospels and his issues have been very divisive within the church. And so for him to come out and say this is what Glenn Beck is speaking against, caring for your neighbor and loving your neighbor as yourself, absolute bull. And I said

PAT: And he knows it.

BAKER: But he wouldn't come to. I asked him three times. I said, you know that's not what he's talking about because and the problem was he said, yes, well, I yes, back I grew up in the Plymouth brethren and these were great debates. I was like, exactly. You know that they're great debates and you know that's what he was talking about. So why are you bearing false witness?

PAT: What did he say?

GLENN: What did he say?

BAKER: He just says, I have no idea what he's talking about and he needs to he's offended people and he needs to apologize.

GLENN: Yeah. Jim, that's not going to happen. Gosh darn it.

BAKER: He will be upset about that.

GLENN: I know he will, and I hate when Marxists get upset because yeah.

PAT: Now, you would have to be preaching redistribution of wealth to be called a Marxist.

GLENN: No, he wouldn't no, he wouldn't preach that, would he, Pat? Would he preach that?

PAT: I'm sure not. I'm sure he's he's been asked about it. I'm sure he's absolutely not!

VOICE: Are you then calling for the redistribution of wealth in society?

WALLIS: Absolutely, without any hesitation. That's what the gospel is all about.

GLENN: Oh. Oh, I didn't

PAT: Wait. Hold it.

GLENN: Hmmm. The widow's mite.

PAT: I was waiting for "Absolutely not." Not "Absolutely."

GLENN: I'm waiting.

PAT: Now, was the widow's mite, that came from a government agency, right?

GLENN: No, no. But I do remember in the gospel that I read Jesus saying you only had one might? That guy over there, he's got too many mites! Get his mites and we can give it to you! Do you remember that scene? No, I don't, either. I don't, either. Isn't that weird? But that's absolutely what

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: That's absolutely what he believes the gospel is about. You know better than that. If you want to give your wealth to someone, that's what you do. Jon Huntsman is more what the gospel is about. He's made billions of dollars. He's going to die broke because he chooses to give it away.

BAKER: But Jim Wallis says that voluntary charity is not enough.

GLENN: You don't happen to have that audio?

PAT: We do.

GLENN: Gosh darn it, we'll have to take a break and come back for that audio. But I don't want to, I don't want to say this is a you know, I don't want to get, you know, onto the Jim Wallis bandwagon today because, oh, Jim, I have a plan, you see?

BAKER: I'm just going to put my computer away then because I've got all of these clips and all the

GLENN: Oh, no, no. No, no, we've got oh, no, I've got a special way to debut all of this, Jim, and educate America. Because I know you're for education, too. I am as well. So we're going to educate America on this together and it will be great. And you just keep listening, Jim, because I've got a special way to do that. But I'm not going to get pulled off of healthcare because that's almost like what an adviser to the president would like me to do this week is be focused on something other than healthcare. Now here's the good news. It's the good news according to Glenn, not to Jesus. But I'm not sure you recognize the good news according to Jesus. The good news according to Glenn is we're going to spend a lot of time talking about social justice in the coming days. Could happen at any time. So you just keep listening. But we're going to do it in a special way because I'm not going to help you sell books. We're going to do it in a special way. And we're, we're going to you are going to like it. You are going to like it a lot. You are going to like it a lot. So just stay with us, okay, Jim? And that goes for you at moveon.org and the Huffington Post, you just stay with us. You just keep listening because we've got some really, really special coming.


 

The FBI recently sent more than a dozen armed agents to the home of well-known pro-life activist Mark Houck to arrest him for allegedly violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances or FACE Act. Now the father of seven faces up to 11 years in prison over claims that he blocked a man from entering an abortion clinic and shoved him when he wouldn't stop verbally harassing Mark's 12-year-old son. Now, if that doesn't sound insane enough, this all happened after local authorities dropped the case. So, what's the full story here?

Attorney Peter Breen joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to tell the family's side of the story, including how the case was already "won" three years ago, and how, after receiving a target letter from the United States Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, Mark's legal team agreed to cooperate fully, only to hear nothing back until the day the FBI showed up on Mark's doorstep.

Breen also explained how the FBI has tried to downplay "abuse of power" claims, accusing Mark's wife of making "inaccurate claims" about the terrifying experience.

"Ryan-Marie, who is Mark's wife, she thought she saw 25 [FBI agents.] The FBI came back and said it wasn't 25, it was no more than 15 or 20 heavily armed federal agents. And she had called them a 'SWAT team' because she's a lay person. I don't know the difference between a SWAT team and a bunch of heavily armed, armored, and shield-bearing federal agents," Breen said.

According to Fox News, a senior FBI source said:

There may have been 15-20 agents at the scene, but denied 25 were there. The agents who came to the door had guns out and at the ready, according to this FBI source, but the guns were never pointed at Houck or his family and were lowered or holstered as soon as Houck was taken into custody. Houck was handcuffed with a belly chain.

"And so, yeah, they had guns drawn and pointed at Mark in front of his wife and their children. And that whole show of force was done against a man who was not a drug lord, not a mafia boss, but instead, a law-abiding pillar of the community whose attorney said, 'we'll bring him in if you decide to charge, even though you have no case.'"

Breen went on to assert that he believes Congress "needs to" hold Attorney General Merrick Garland accountable for the arrest. "I can't imagine that those 20 federal agents were excited about being called out to a peaceful man's home, guns drawn," he said.

In the video clip below, Breen goes on the explain what he believes should happen next, and why Houck's arrest "should frighten all of us." Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

Gavin McInnes broke the internet last month when his live show was interrupted, and it appeared that he was arrested. He broke the internet again a few weeks later when he admitted that the arrest was staged as part of what was intended to be an elaborate prank.

McInnes joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to explain the real reason behind his disastrous prank.

"This was a $10,000 joke. I lost 100 subscribers because of it, but I was going away to Paris for a week because my daughter is going to college and I thought let's make it interesting," McInnes said of his decision to fake an on-air arrest in the middle of his live "Get Off My Lawn" podcast on August 25.

"There was a method to the madness, with the prank ... my point was, first of all, this is happening to people in real-time. Tim Poole has been swatted a million times," he explained to Glenn. "The thought police are in full effect. I also wanted to lampoon the media's bloodlust for us suffering."

Glenn played a clip of the now-infamous hoax while McInnes explained what was really going on behind the scenes, including how his very drunk friend "Unrelia-Bill" was supposed to act the part of the arresting officer but ended up being much too intoxicated (at "2 pm") to speak even a few lines, and how smugly gleeful the "far left" was when they thought McInnes had actually been arrested.

Glenn Beck joined Fox News' Tucker Carlson on Thursday night to discuss Visa Inc.'s "horrifying" new plans to flag firearm sales by separately categorizing purchases at gun shops, a move that Glenn aptly described as "the next step in banning guns."

In what's been hailed as a major victory for gun control activists, Visa agreed to adopt the International Organization for Standardization's (ISO) new set of standards by creating a special merchant category code for gun and ammunition sales.

In his appearance on "Tucker Carlson Tonight," Glenn shared a letter written by Robert B. Thomson III, a senior vice president at Visa, showing that the credit card company initially pushed back on the ISO's new rules.

“We believe that asking payment networks to serve as a moral authority by deciding which legal goods can or cannot be purchased sets a dangerous precedent,” Thomson wrote in the letter to pro-gun-control lawmakers, including Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts.

Just days later, however, Visa had agreed to comply with the ISO's plan to establish a new merchant category code for gun stores. So why did Visa suddenly flip?

As Glenn explained, it all comes down to pressure from America's largest union-owned bank, the Amalgamated Bank, one of the only unionized banks in the United States and a proud proponent of ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) investing.

"This is the next step in banning guns," Glenn asserted.

"It's horrifying!" Tucker responded after several seconds of stunned silence.

"I'm so grateful you did the reporting on this," he told Glenn. "I'm not sure why it falls to you since we have a couple of very large daily newspapers in this country you'd think would want to report this, yet none of them did. So, Glenn Beck did."


On a recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn broke down the details of this latest attack on the Second Amendment and revealed how this is a step toward something even worse than federal gun registration.

Glenn Beck: Here's why Stacey Abrams' fetal heartbeat remarks are hilarious but TERRIFYING

(Left) Image source: video screenshot/ (right) Photo by Marcus Ingram/Getty Images

Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams has a new pro-abortion conspiracy theory: "There is no such thing as a [fetal] heartbeat at six weeks ... it is a manufactured sound designed to convince people that men have a right to take control of a woman’s body."

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere agreed Abrams' latest "misinformation" is not just ridiculous but could be dangerous if people are actually willing to believe her.

"If you want to defend abortion, go ahead and defend it. Defend what you're actually doing. Stop denying what is reality," Stu said. "If this is such a great defensible policy, then just come out and defend it, but they never can ... you notice how they can't go to the actual thing they say is so important. They keep defending these other things that aren't true."

Glenn said the pro-choice movement was successful for a long time because most people want the decision to be up to the woman and her doctor and that abortion should be safe, legal, and rare. But when leftists began "celebrating" their abortions or calling for "abortion on demand" at any point in the pregnancy, that's when they start to lose support.

"Because they've celebrated abortion and are losing regular people, you can't put that genie back in the bottle. So, what do they have to do now? They have to take the insane step of discrediting medical machines and technology," Glenn said.

"This is after two years, by the way, of them claiming the biggest scandal in the world was people suggesting the voting machines were hacked — after they previously said that voting machines were hacked in elections they [Democrats] lost," Stu pointed out.

"Honestly, gang, think this through because this is where life gets very scary. This is where you go to authoritarian rule and you can kill millions of people because you're truly now discrediting things that everyone knows is true," Glenn warned.

"So, if you disagree ... you can say that is an evil magic box that has made up sounds in it to convince people. If they will buy that, you're at the Salem witch trials. 'If she doesn't float, she wasn't a witch.' That's what you're looking at right now — and what's frightening is, [Abrams] can say this with a straight face and no one discredits her," he continued.

"You don't think that they can convince those people that you are a terrorist because of the way you vote? [...] You don't think they can convince half the country that you should be eliminated, liquidated, put into a camp, whatever authoritarians love to do? ... We are headed towards dangerous, dangerous times. We better wake up and stand together because this is frightening — it's hilarious — but because people are taking it seriously, it is terrifying," Glenn added.
