GLENN: Now, let me talk about something else that is in the news. Jim Wallis in the Washington Post, which -- we've been busy this week on television and I think -- I think next week -- we've got some things on Andy Stern and Jim Wallis that I want to share with you, but in the Washington Post today, there is a story, a guest voice on views on faith and its impact on the news. What Glenn Beck Meant About Social Justice by Stu Burguiere. How did this come about? You wrote an editorial. How did this come about?

STU: Well, there was an interview going on with Jim Wallis about you, which is one of the 15 million he's done in the past three weeks.

GLENN: Strangely, most of them with the Washington Post.

STU: Many of them, yes, with the Washington Post.

GLENN: That seems strange, doesn't it?

STU: Yeah. And I felt it was important to show -- to just show how disingenuous he is because he absolutely knows what you are talking about.

GLENN: Oh, he does.

STU: 100% and he continues to act as if he's just mesmerized by how evil you are on this topic, so he can continue to get interviews. I mean, that's all he's doing. He's just promoting himself at this point.

GLENN: So, let me read it. I love this. In the Washington Post today, editorial from Stu Burguiere. Like everyone else in America, Glenn Beck thinks social justice, if it is defined as charitable outreach to the poor, is a good idea. He supports it. He believes in it. He does it. In fact, I do it at a much, much, much higher rate --

PAT: We've got to get into this.

GLENN: -- than President Obama and Joe Biden, much higher rate. Anyway, so, what's the problem? I mean, social justice seems to be an innocuous phrase, right? It paints the picture of fairness. I guess that's why father Charles Coughlin used it when naming his National Union For Social Justice and his publication Social Justice Weekly. Coughlin was an anti-Semitic religious broadcaster in the 1930's.

Wait a minute. A religious broadcaster. Huh. That was anti-Semitic.

He used the banner of social justice to attack capitalism, warn of Jewish plots against Christian civilization, and to promote his adoration for Italian Fascist Benito Mussolini. This is part of the information Glenn revealed that special TV show about the American extremism of the 20th century. In context of promoting that special, he began talking about how the far left was once again using this terminology to politicize churches. The specific example he named was reverend Jeremiah Wright. He told his listeners that if they were in a church that preaches -- that preaches Jeremiah Wright style social justice, they should leave or at least get educated on what it exactly means. It took him all of eight seconds to clarify the type of church he was speaking of but that was long enough for most of the media to end the transcript. Suddenly Glenn was accused of attacking the central tenants of the Bible because he supposedly believed to any church that wants to help the poor should immediately be evacuated. This absurd narrative is mainly the property of reverend Jim Wallis. To restate the obvious, some simply use the term social justice as a substitute for outreach to the poor. This is not the kind of social justice Glenn was talking about. The fact that this term has been utilized for purposes other than good Christian charity is well-documented. One scholar explained it quite clearly, quote, it is true that the term has been used by the right (scholar) and the left for all kinds of ideological purposes that aren't necessarily the purposes of Christ, end quote. The scholar, Jim Wallis. But for Wallis to continue getting attention, he must act as if he believes Glenn is against churches helping the poor. Any honest observer would realize that isn't the case. Is anyone on earth against charitable outreach to the poor? Certainly not Glenn.

In his book Arguing with Idiots, Glenn describes helping those less fortunate as an obligation. He wrote that capitalism will inevitably care if individuals stop caring about the welfare of others. He just believes? ( Not a government bureaucracy. When was the last time you felt charitable on April 15th? Of course, these attacks are just opportunistic politics. Jim Wallis and his politically motivated foe anger are now doing interviews about Glenn at the (Tiger Woods mistress. The left is taking a break from calling Glenn too religious to now call him not religious enough. But Wallis -- but Wallis's repeated attempts at becoming the victim are laughable. He wrote to Glenn, quote, I have no reason to attack you, end quote. Some would find that sentence questionable, considering he's a spiritual visor to President Obama. The New York Times reported that Wallis was one of the five pastors meeting with the Obama's for private prayer sessions and, quote, discussions on the role of religion in politics, end quote. The Times noted, quote, in contrast to the other four, his contact with the President has been focused more on policy than prayer, end quote. Time magazine notes, quote, he has the ear of the man in the oval office, end quote. During their reporting of Wallis's attacks on Glenn, both Time and the New York Times mysteriously forgot their own reporting on this topic. A report of religious news service says Wallis is one of a small group helping to, quote, shape decisions about the Iraq war, health care, reform, and the economy, end quote. It's up to Americans to decide whether this or any level of presidential access is appropriate for someone like Wallis. 13 days after 9/11, just 13 days after 9/11, he was already blaming the attacks on the sins of U.S. foreign policy, including global domination and militarism. He hoped 9/11 would become a teachable moment in which we could learn our role in creating desperation among the terrorists. Desperate people do desperate things, end quote. He explained later -- he later explained our foreign policy as, quote, dangerously Messianic, arrogant, and bordering on the idolatrous and blasphemous, end quote. Wallis is just as revealing when speaking about his current economic views. Quote, I'm not a liberal; I'm a radical, end quote. Asked if he was calling for the redistribution of wealth across society, he responded, quote, absolutely, without any hesitation. That's what the gospel is all about, end quote. This is a man that believes an affluent church is no less than, quote, an affront to the gospel, end quote. And he is talking about Glenn being divisive? But on the bright side, he has illuminated some common ground between Glenn and the President. While Wallis describes reverend Wright as mainstream -- that is in quotes -- both the President and Glenn believe that leaving churches like reverend Wright's is a good idea. The difference is Glenn just advised it and the President actually did it.

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."
