GLENN: Welcome to the program. My name is Glenn Beck. I'm going to play some audio for you. This is a school play. This is a little girl, she's dressed as a tree and now remember, you can't do plays based on the birth of Christ anymore because, well, that might offend some people. But listen to this play. Here's the audio and we'll attach the video to the newsletter today at GlennBeck.com. You've got to hear this. Go ahead.

GLENN: Okay, stop. Stop. I can't take it anymore. You can see the audio at GlennBeck.com. You notice you don't hear the laughter from the, "Oh, isn't that could you tell, they are clearcut." If I were -- you know what? This is all happening because we allow it. What was the percentage of that audience, if they're anything like the stereotypical American -- you know, if it was a real true representation of America, only 20% of that audience believed in global warming, 20%. After all of Al Gore's hype and all of the campaign and everything else, the number's actually gone down. It's now 20% of the Americans that believe that manmade global warming exists and this is the big crisis that everybody says it is. 20%. Where was the 80% represented in there? You know what? They're going to do a play, they come home. Oh, they are all excited, "We're going to do a deal," and you just don't want to stick out, you don't want to make a scene, you just go with it. Your kids are being indoctrinated. And we don't do anything about it. We don't demand "No." Others demand, "No, you can't have a nativity scene." Others demand no, you can't have the birth of Christ on the stage. But yet we sit here and we take it. You can't sing a Christmas Carol. It's a winter concert. But they will do this play.

The reason why atheists stand up to be heard is because they believe it's a lie. The reason why atheists stand up is because they are tired of the indoctrination. That's what they believe, that they are being -- their children are being indoctrinated and taught this lie that Jesus lived and roamed the Earth. And yet we take it because we want to be inclusive. You know, I don't want to jam my religion down anybody's throat. You don't, either -- well, maybe you do. I don't. You know, I don't mind, you know, somebody who lives across the street and they are another religion, I don't care. I don't care. I hope they find the happiness that I have found and if it makes them a better person and it draws them closer to the spirit of God and all of that stuff, God bless them. If it doesn't, gosh, if I'll live my life in a way, try to be an example, you know, if they're interested, I'll share it with them. But I ain't gonna jam it down their throat. That's not my place. But you know what? Isn't it time that we stop letting others jam stuff down our throat, the same people who tell us to sit down and shut up because we're hate mongers when we're not hate mongers, when we don't hate other people who are different than us, we don't hate people with other opinions than us, we don't hate people of different skin color. We don't have a problem if you want to have an honest debate about global warming. I don't hate the planet, I don't want to starve African children, I don't want to pollute our seas and our oceans, I don't want to breathe in poison air, I don't want to leave it for my grandchildren and yet I'm the one told to sit down and shut up. I'm a corporate toadie, I'm a Holocaust denier. You know what? There's 80 of us to 20 of you. Sit down and shut up!

Now, if there's any 20 of you that would like to have an intelligent, peaceful conversation that's based on actual facts, that we can have an honest debate out in the open where you don't spiral into name-calling, where you don't spiral into, "Well, you're just a Holocaust denier," where you actually have people present both sides and be able to answer for it and not a stooge on your side and not a stooge on my side, but the best each side has to offer and then have that debate, let us listen to it, let us decide. That's great. Then you and I, even though we might disagree on global warming, if you believe that that should happen, then you and I are on the same time -- on the same side and we should stick together.

But Progressives, don't confuse these with liberals and don't confuse them with Democrats. Progressives, true deep Progressives that know what it means to be a progressive, they have never been for debate. They are never for discussion. That's not what Progressives do. They know better than you. If you don't understand, well, you are not smart enough, or you are part of the problem. Why do we take it? Stand up. You know what? Spend the next couple of weeks being grateful and thankful, really celebrate Thanksgiving, be grateful for what we have. Even as troubled times we live in, be grateful for what we have and then see the Christ child, see that the Christ child, what he brings is a second chance, a chance to start over, a chance to leave your past in your past. Doesn't matter what's happened yesterday. It really doesn't matter. Just start over. Forgive yourself, forgive everybody else and start all over again. And then you hit New Year's and make a commitment to yourself that you're going to find out what you believe and then you're going to stand up for what you believe. And don't let our kids be sucked into this cesspool of indoctrination. 

On Monday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn opened up about the tragic death of his brother-in-law, Vincent Colonna Jr., who passed away unexpectedly on April 5. He also shared some of the important thoughts and insights he's learned through the grieving process.

"Last Monday, I was sitting in this chair ... the two-minute warning comes and Stu said to me, 'You ready for the show?'' ... And that's when my wife [Tania] came to the door of the studio here at our house and said, 'I...' and she held the phone up. And then she collapsed on the floor in tears," Glenn began. "Tania's brother had passed. To say this was a shock, is an understatement."

Glenn described his brother-in-law as having "a servant's spirit."

"He was always the guy who lit up the room. He was always the guy helping others. He would never stop, because he was always helping others," Glenn said of Vincent. "He was on the school board. He was a little league coach. He was the soccer coach. He helped build the church. He took care of the lawn of the church. He was constantly doing things, raising money for charity, working over here, helping to organize this. But he was never the guy in the spotlight. He was just the guy doing it, and you had no idea how much he had done because he never talked about it.

"We also didn't know how much mental anguish he was in because he never talked about it. And last Monday morning, after spending Easter with the family ... he killed himself. This is now the third family member of mine that has gone through this. And I keep seeing it play out over and over and over again, in exactly the same way."

Glenn described his thoughts as he, Tania, and her family struggled to come to grips with the devastating loss.

"I learned some really important things as I was watching this wake. I'm seeing these people from all walks of life ... the people that were there, were there because [Vince] made a difference in their life. He was a true servant. As I'm watching this, all that kept going through my mind was, 'by their fruits, ye shall know them.' The fruits of his labor were on display. He was a servant all the time. All the time ... he found a way to love everybody.

"There are two great commandments: Love God with all your heart and mind and soul. And love your neighbor. So those two great commandments boil down to: Love truth. Because that's what God is," Glenn said.

"Love thy neighbor. That's where joy comes from. The opposite of joy is despair, and that is the complete absence of hope ... and how do you find joy? You find joy by rooting yourself in the truth. Even if that's a truth you don't want to accept. Accept the truth," he added. "But we have to stop saying that there's nothing we can do. What are we going to do? Well, here's the first thing: stop living a lie."

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"
