GLENN: Hey, let me ask you about this story. Here's a story that I think, I think that this story not being anywhere just proves how ubiquitous this story really is. On Friday, couple of weeks before Christmas, aka, birth of Jesus Christ, Sarah Palin's church in Wasilla, Alaska apparently set on fire by arsonists while women and children were inside. Hmmm. They made it out safely. The damage to the building totals around $1 million. I say damage to the building and not the church because despite the fire, the church went on to have services anyway in a nearby middle school. Church is more than just a building, but the building burned down. The congregation, by the way, not freaking out. One member, Patsy Inks, says she was initially shocked and frustrated by the news but by Sunday, two days later, she was feeling blessed. "The tragedy has brought us together," she said. A September 12th American, it appears. Palin stopped by the church Saturday saying she was sorry if this had anything to do with the undeserved negative attention the church had received after the election. Police don't necessity yet if it was related. Church members say they thought it was just likely local punks or someone who had a beef with God. Of course, the article finds the need to mention that the church bulletin had talked about a Focus on the Family event about how same-sex relationships can be overcome, but that's just vital to a story about fire -- I'm not sure, unless you are saying that maybe somebody with a gay agenda set the church on fire? Is that what the story was saying? I'm not sure why that was in there.

The question is have you heard this story? Why is this story not leading every newscast? I get so frustrated with the news now, I can't take it. I can't take it. Yesterday I talked to the people at Fox and Friends and we were supposed to do a new story on -- jeez, what was it? It was the bailouts and something else, and it was -- and I was talking to them about the possibility of a Civil War in America. I get on Fox and Friends this morning and I talk -- we changed the subject to Clint Eastwood and how America's just not tough enough right before we went on the air. And if you watch Fox and Friends and you go over to NBC's Today Show or Good Morning America, you will think that Fox and Friends is, you know, a thinktank in comparison. Nobody is talking about the real issues. We are in real trouble.

Now, I don't think that this church being burned down should lead the news, but in today's society maybe it should. In the America I grew up in, it wouldn't have to. I mean, I know the President was almost hit by a shoe and everything, but isn't this a pretty big story? Whenever there's some racist that burns down a black church in the South somewhere, the story is everywhere. But the woman who has come closer than any other to being vice president of the United States has her church burned down and you barely find the story anywhere. In one way I'm glad this happened to Sarah Palin's church because the leadership of the church and the congregation have reacted with class. They've reacted the way you should. They went on. None of that -- without hate, without malice, without stone-throwing. But let me ask you this: Do you think it would lead the news if Barack Obama's old church had been burned down, the church of Jeremiah Wright? Do you think that would have led the news? A man who's already blaming the government for creating AIDS to kill African-Americans, imagine what he would be saying into any camera that would tape him. Not only would the media suddenly find a way to make a front page story in every single paper, this would squarely be blamed on hateful people like Sarah Palin, not to mention there would be calls to get rid of talk radio already today. We would have riots in the streets, and the media would be more than happy to egg them on.

I don't know who did this and maybe it is just local punks and I hope it is just local punks, but I can tell you that regardless of the cause, the people of the church and the way they are reacting is inspiring. In a very difficult holiday season, I'm more and more impressed every day that the body of God -- and that means Jews, Hindus, Christians, Muslims, everybody -- the body of God is under attack and if we don't start pulling together, if we don't start being those people that see God in everybody's eyes, if we're not those people that stand together, we're in big trouble. When somebody can burn down a church and nobody says anything about it, that's either a really good sign or it's a sign that they are not on the politically correct side. So burning that church down doesn't make a difference. By the way, this church, to quote a crazy book that some people are reading now, this church congregation is facing their storm with just unbelievable class. They would never ask, but if you want to help them face their storm, it's Wasilla Bible Church, 1651 West Nicola Avenue, Wasilla, Alaska, 99654. We'll put that in the news today. As far as I know, they are not asking for donations to help. They probably won't. They are not that kind of people. But should they have to?

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."
