Organization praying to Obama?


Is this group saying a prayer to Barack Obama? Glenn is skeptical. Are they saying “Obama” or “Oh God?” Are they praising the president or just mocking religion? Turn up the volume and see what you hear. (Unless you’re at work, where you would look a little nuts.)

UPDATE: Gamaliel foundation responds

On December 4, 2008, 500 leaders from 35 interfaith organizations from across the United States led a New Orleans style funeral march to the Washington offices of UnitedHealthcare to demonstrate the need for comprehensive healthcare reform that provides medical coverage for every American citizen.

At that demonstration, several members representing Gamaliel Foundation affiliates spoke. Below are excerpts of what was said:

"We are here because we are upset at the rising cost of healthcare, and the outrageous profits made by insurance executives. These profits are being used to hire an army of lobbyists and lawyers whose sole job it is to prevent any meaningful reform of our system," said Rev. Dennis Jacobson, pastor from Milwaukee, Wisconsin and leader of the Gamaliel network of community organizations. "

"UnitedHealthcare is the worst among many offenders,” said Dr. Clementina Ceria-Ulep, acting Dean of the University of Hawaii School of Nursing. "Their need to deliver to share holders is taking the love and care out of the system, at the same time it sucks up money that would otherwise be used to pay for services, procedures, doctors and nurses."

"While UnitedHealthcare is a particularly bad company, it is also symptomatic of why we can't seem to get healthcare reform in America,” said Cate Poe of Long Island. “For decades, healthcare reform has been stopped dead in its tracks by lobbyists and contributions to our elected officials from the insurance industry. This time it is going to be different.”

As a faith-based organization, it is customary for Gamaliel Foundation affiliates to begin and end every action with prayer. At no time, however, have we prayed to President Barack Obama. In the form of call and response, those who took part in the UnitedHealthcare action can be heard saying, “Hear our cry oh God,” “Deliver us oh God,” etc.

It is obvious that those who took the time to distort our sincere action for healthcare reform, by posting their own edited version on the Internet, are against what we believe is a fundamental right. It is also obvious that those who are against healthcare reform will stoop to any level to stop what Dr. Martin Luther King called, one of the greatest forms of inequality.

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!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"
