Glenn Beck: Merging the EPA With Churches?





Watch

Glenn Beck weekdays at 5p & 2a ET on Fox News Channel

If I had told you five years ago that this government would bypass the Congress — and thus you — and go through the EPA to get climate change done, by having them declare that when you exhale you poison the air, you wouldn't have believed it.

And, if I had added that the government is going to merge with churches under Democrats, you'd have said I was stark raving insane. That's is why I told you this, a couple of months ago:

(BEGIN AUDIO CLIP)

GLENN BECK RADIO PROGRAM: I beg you, look for the words 'social justice' or 'economic justice' on your church Web site. If you find it, run as fast as you can. Social justice and economic justice, they are code words.

(END AUDIO CLIP)

Suddenly, I went from religious zealot to a godless, atheist animal in one sentence. I was a heretic, a heathen and a hater.

But again, this isn't about me, this is about you. The reason I warned you about this is because they are injecting this social justice poison into our churches. To provide cover for the social justice movement, Time asked: "Why Does Glenn Beck Hate Jesus?" The Huffington Post wrote: "Glenn Beck to Jesus: Drop Dead." And then there was the Marxist Reverend Jim Wallis, urging Christians to "turn off Glenn Beck."

Why they would mount a campaign so fast and so vicious? Now I can tell you why: It was because we were right. Your church is being attacked through a faith-based initiative headed up by Barack Obama's administration.

It was quite an amazing smear campaign from the same people that continually accuse us of smearing them when we use their own words against them. We're going to show you their own words again in just a minute. Keep in mind, they can't have the truth being pointed out to you — the American people — that churches are being used by progressives to help bring about the fundamental transformation of America.

Remember when the left railed against President Bush's faith-based initiatives? They were hysterical over his attempt to force Christianity down the throats of innocent, unsuspecting, secular Americans. How dare he? They screamed "unconstitutional," "separation of church and state" and every other ignorant, numb-skulled drivel that could spill out their faces.

At his first press conference after taking office, the lovely and talented Helen Thomas asked President Bush:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

HELEN THOMAS, COLUMNIST: Why do you refuse to respect the wall between the church and state? And you know that the mixing of religion and government, for centuries, has led to slaughter. The very fact that our country has stood in good stead by having this separation — why do you break it down?

(END VIDEO CLIP)

My, how times have changed. Bush's opponent in 2004, John Kerry, said this about cap-and-trade last week:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

SEN. JOHN KERRY, D-MASS.: I think this could pass. And the reason it could pass is that we have the broadest base of support, as I said. We have faith-based community support for this bill.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Since when does John Kerry get excited over churches getting involved in politics?

Well, now President Obama is using the faith-based offices to promote the Gospel of Gaia on the United States and there's nary a raised numb-skull voice?

Obama's Advisory Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships recently issued its report of recommendations and the Obama administration is about to take faith-based initiatives to a whole new level.

The president's council envisions the government and religion partnering to push the good news of global warming, climate change and green issues. Yes, the religion of environmental and social justice.

The council hopes the new EPA faith office will also help churches and other non-profits improve "access to financing," including "establishing revolving loan programs or working with utility companies to help finance greening building projects."

Obama is merging the EPA with churches to make it easier for churches to get loans to green up and push green initiatives on their parishioners. On the one hand, if you don't cooperate, your 501c3 status could be in jeopardy, but if you help with the administration's agenda, why the government could help you build a new chapel.

The administration's emphasis on faith goes beyond cap-and-trade. Nancy Pelosi is now asking churches to help her pass immigration reform:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE NANCY PELOSI, D-CALIF.: On the subject of immigration because I think the church is going to have to play a very major role in how we, how people are treated. The cardinals, the archbishops, the bishops that come to me and say we want you to pass immigration reform and I said but I want you to speak about it from the pulpit. I want you to instruct your, whatever the communication is — they — the people some oppose immigration reform are sitting in those pews and you have to tell them that this is a manifestation of our living the Gospels.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Net Neutrality is getting support from religious groups like the Christian Coalition. Among the coalition's 2010 agenda: "Prevent discrimination on the Internet by passing Net Neutrality." The group Free Press is also pushing the Net Neutrality agenda through events like "faith-based community organizing and media reform."

Where is the ACLU? This is an organization that believes our kids have to be protected from evil Christmas carols in school and that civilization can't exist if the Ten Commandments are seen by the public. But merging the EPA and faith is perfectly fine?

Yes. In fact, it's the perfect program for the ACLU: Replacing God with government and the Creator with the created. The environmental justice religion is so powerful now that one of the leaders of the movement — one of its high priests — has admitted that what they're jamming down our throats won't even help solve the supposed problem:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

JOEL ROGERS: I hope you all realize that you could eliminate every power plant in America today and you could stop every car in America — take out the entire power generation sector, take out all of the transportation sector — and you still would not be anywhere near 80 percent below 1990 levels. You would be closer to 60 percent — it would be around 68 percent — and that is with bringing the economy to a complete halt, basically.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Al Gore has admitted that C02 doesn't even necessarily drive temperature up — the basis of his entire argument for global warming:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

REP. JOE BARTON, R-TEXAS: The temperature goes up before the CO2 goes up.

FORMER VICE PRESIDENT AL GORE: Sometimes, that has been true in the past. The opposite has also been true in the past.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

That's not what he said in "An Inconvenient Truth" — that would've been well, inconvenient for him. But it isn't about truth or saving the planet. It's about using social and environmental justice to fundamentally transform America. And just as environmental justice has nothing to do with saving the environment, social justice has nothing to do with the justice, the Bible or God.

After the White House faith-based council's report came out, I was being attacked on the Internet: "Why doesn't Glenn Beck practice what he preaches?" and then Acts 2:44-45 was cited: "And all that believed were together, and had all things common; and sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need."

Notice anything missing there? How about the word "government" or "force" or "taxes?" They didn't have all their possessions taxed and confiscated by Rome and then redistributed to the poor. They chose to give all of their goods. And I can't help but wonder if the person who posted that scripture has parted with all he has? I would be willing to compare my contributions to the poor to yours, sir.

Look, from the beginning I have explained that social justice, as presented by many of these people on the left, is code for "Marxism." And who is it that attacked me from the beginning? Marxists like Jim Wallis. In the Reverend's own words:

(BEGIN AUDIO CLIPS)

MAUREEN FIEDLER, HOST: Are you then calling for the redistribution of wealth in society?

REV. JIM WALLIS: Absolutely. Without any hesitation. That's what the Gospel is all about.

WALLIS: I get a call one day from a priest. And Dorothy Day is in town opening a Catholic border house on Kenmore up on the north side. She wants to meet you; do you have time? Do I have time? We had one community car, which was always broken and so I ran, you know, 20 blocks. And I'm in the parlor of the Catholic worker and in walks the great lady. Dorothy wrote a book about her life called "Love Is the Measure," but she wasn't ever soft. Very tough. So you're a radical student like me, right? You were a Marxist like me, right? Yeah.

(END AUDIO CLIPS)

That's why they have been so vicious and relentless in trying to discredit and destroy me. They can't have the American people understand what it is they're doing with this social justice and EPA-faith office. It's a radical perversion of the Gospel. Which is why you're hearing nothing from the far-left lunatic fringe about "separation of church and state." They know this isn't about God; it's about control and the fundamental transformation of America.

Look, I want you to know that I'm telling you this because nothing is as it seems. A jobs bill is really another stimulus bill, which is really just graft. You need to know the truth and make your own decisions. So, we're going to show the roots of social justice. We'll get the truth from one of the leading evangelists in America and what it actually is.

Your church is either for socialist government or the living of the gospel and you need to know which one they are teaching.

In a shocking but underreported conversation ahead of the G7 Speakers' meeting in London last week, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi admitted that the administration knows China is committing "genocide" against the Uyghurs in the Xinjiang region, but thinks working with the regime on climate change is more important.

On the radio program, an outraged Glenn Beck dissected Pelosi's speech and broke down how — along with the Biden administration's abandonment of Americans in Afghanistan, and the Democrat decision to follow measures of medical "equity" — the far left is revealing how little they really care about human life.

Glenn played a video clip of Pelosi making the following statement:

We've always felt connected to China, but with their military aggression in the South China Sea, with their continuation of genocide with the Uyghurs in Xinjiang province there, with their violation of the cultural, linguistic, religious priority of Tibet, with their suppression of democracy in Hong Kong and other parts of China, as well – they're just getting worse in terms of suppression, and freedom of speech. So, human rights, security, economically [sic].

Having said all of that ... we have to work together on climate. Climate is an overriding issue and China is the leading emitter in the world, the U.S. too and developed world too, but we must work together.

"We have Nancy Pelosi admitting the United States of America knows that they're not only committing [genocide], they're continuing to commit it. Which means, we've known for a while," Glenn noted. "And what does she say? She goes on to say, yes, they're committing genocide against the Uyghurs, but having said that, I'm quoting, 'the overriding issue,' is working together on climate change.

"Would we have worked with Hitler on climate change? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the bomb? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the Autobahn? Would we have worked with Hitler on his socialized medicine? Would we have worked with Hitler on any of his national, socialist ideas?" he asked.

"The answer is no. No. When you're committing genocide, no! She said 'we have to work together on climate,' because climate is the 'overriding issue.' The overriding issue? There is no way to describe this mindset. That, yes, they are killing an entire group of people because of their ethnicity or religion. They are systematically rounding them up, using them for slave labor, and killing them, using their organs and selling them on the open market. They are nothing more than cattle. For us to recognize it and do nothing about it is bad enough. But to say, 'we recognize it, but we have bigger things to talk to them about,' is a horror show."

Glenn went on to urge Americans to "stand up together in love, peace, and harmony," or risk watching our nation become the worst plague on human life yet.

The fall of Lehman Brothers in 2008 marked the largest bankruptcy filing in U.S. history and economic collapse was felt throughout the world. But now China's own version of Lehman Brothers, Evergrande, is teetering closer and closer to that edge, too. On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck gave the latest update and predicted how it will affect Asian markets and what it could mean for America's economy.

Glenn explained why he believes a major collapse that is happening now in China will have a cascading effect into a "controlled collapse," a managed decline that will dramatically change America's economy and the way we all live.

"You will not recognize your lifestyle. Hear me," Glenn warned. "And that's not a right-left thing. That's a right-wrong thing. We're on the wrong track. I'm telling you now, there's new information and you are not going to recognize the American lifestyle. ... It could happen tomorrow. It could happen in five years from now, but it will happen. We are headed for a very different country. One where you don't have the rights that you have. And you certainly don't have the economic privileges that Americans are used to."

"The same thing that happened in 2008 is now happening in China," Glenn continued. "This time, it's going to take everything down. When it collapses, it will take everything down."

Justin Haskins, editorial director of the Heartland Institute, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to expose a shocking conversation between two Great Reset proponents — Klaus Schwab, chairman of the World Economic Forum, and Christine Lagarde, president of the European Central Bank (Europe's equivalent to the Fed).

The way Schwab and Lagarde discuss the role central banks should play in establishing societal norms, determining your way of life, and defending against potential crisis is proof that the Great Reset is upon us, Justin explained. And the scariest part is that they're not even trying to hide it. The entire, unbelievable conversation has been published on the WEF website, which you can read here.

Glenn read an excerpt from the conversation:

Christine Lagarde: At the ECB, we have now wrapped up and concluded our strategy review, which was the first one in 17 years. And I was blessed to have an entire Governing Council unanimously agree that the fight against climate change should be one of the considerations that we take when we determine monetary policy. So at least the European Central Bank is of the view that climate change is an important component in order to decide on monetary policy. ...

Can we arrive at that trade-off between fighting climate change, preserving biodiversity and yet securing enough growth to respond to legitimate demands of the population? And my first answer, Klaus, to be firm, is that to have a way of life, we need life. And in the medium term, we do have major threats on the horizon that could cause the death of hundreds of thousands of people. So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. ...

So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. How can we come together to make sure that we secure the first priority, which is life, and also protect the way of life that people have? And make sure that the cost of it is not so high for some people, that they just cannot tolerate it. I think that the trade-off that we reach will probably require some redistribution, because it is clear that the most exposed people, the less privileged people are those that are going to need some help.

"Do you understand, America, what that means?" Glenn exclaimed. "You have elites, that you never elected, that are having these meetings ... deciding what is a legitimate need for you. And telling you that your needs are going to go away in your lifetime. You may not see a time where you get wants again. Just your needs are going to be addressed. Am I reading this wrong?"

"This is absolutely what is being said here," Justin agreed. "She's very clear that we need to make sure that way of life is second to life. We have to save all these people, hundreds of thousands of people are going to die from this supposedly existential threat of climate change. And their wants, and their desires, and their quality of living, all of that has to come second."

"This is a central bank saying this. This is not an elected official, who is accountable directly to the people. This is a central bank saying, we're going to print money. We're going to use monetary policy, to impose these ideas, to rework society in order to accomplish our goals," Justin added, addressing Lagarde's call for "some redistribution."

Will Great Reset elites — not elected by the U.S. — soon be dictating to the rest of the world? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Justin break it down:

First comes the "crisis," then comes the expansion. The federal government is seizing on the January 6 Capitol riot to take carte blanche to do whatever it wants and weaponize the event to further empower the new overlords of our country — the intelligence community.

On Glenn TV Wednesday, Glenn Beck reveals what's happening with the U.S. Capitol Police and argues they've morphed into a new arm of the intelligence apparatus, boosted by a massive increase in funding and surveillance equipment and new offices OUTSIDE the Capitol building. The Biden administration has also hidden basic details regarding January 6. Why did officials refuse to release the name of the officer who killed Ashli Babbitt? Where are the 14,000-plus hours of CCTV footage? As any intelligence organization knows, it's best to operate outside the realms of oversight.

Glenn exposes the hidden hand of government that could be used to punish and destroy innocent Americans who are only guilty of holding the "wrong" political view.
