Glenn Beck: Gore graces Congress with holy presence

VOICE: The Glenn Beck program presents Spotlight on Science.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: We will restore science to its rightful place.

VOICE: A series dedicated to President Obama's passion for everything science.

CALLER: If science were religion ‑‑ and believe me it's not. I mean, it's crazy to talk and to think, you know, that some imaginary being just created Earth and life out of thin air when obviously our planet and life began when two rocks collided. Duh, hello. But if science were a religion, I think it's pretty clear who the god of science would be. Representative Ed Markey from Massachusetts bowed to the altar of the science god last week when he appeared before congress and he said, glows, long before greenhouse gases and global warming became subject of daily discussions, Al Gore debated ways to improve the clean air act. Vice President Gore was a leader of the debate in the 1980s and now the whole world knows that he has long been a visionary. It sometimes is said that a prophet is someone who is right but too soon. Al Gore is an example of someone who is not only right early but very early. In fact, he dedicated his life to educating our country so they, too, saw the threats that he foresaw decades ago.

Now, I don't want to, you know, bring into question his holiness Al Gore, but isn't a prophet supposed to be right? Educating the country so that they, too, saw the threats he foresaw decades ago is not being right. That's being an educator, not a prophet, or accurate. Gore is still talking about threats. Nothing has happened that he has predicted. The only thing that has changed is government has realized that they can make a boatload of money through taxes on this "Science" so they are pretending to care because all they really care is about taxes. And even that is in jeopardy.

At Al Gore's hearing, former energy and commerce committee chairman representative John Dingell, Democrat from Michigan, said, quote:

REPRESENTATIVE DINGELL: Nobody in this country realizes that cap and trade is a tax and it's a great big one.

GLENN: Cap and trade is a tax, and it's a great big one. The holy one, Al Gore, had not been very happy because he and others on the far left have been trying to hide this fact. According to moveon.org, quote: If Republicans convince voters that clean energy legislation amounts to a new tax, Obama's plan is toast, end quote. Gore knows his window on cap and trade tax is dwindling because to not let a crisis go to waste, there actually has to be a crisis. And support in the polls for action on global warming is rapidly dwindling. Crisis averted without a tax? Oh, that's not possible. No, sometimes god, otherwise known as Al Gore, works in mysterious ways.

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!"
