Glenn Beck: Smell the sulfur

GLENN: All right. So that's today only. All right. Let's go back to this ad. This group is a Democratic, you know, progressive operative group. You go to their website and it's all about pass healthcare, you know, card check, blah, blah blah, blah blah, and they came they're a good Christian group and they have a real problem with me because, well, I could be the devil. Here is the ad campaign that is running on radio stations apparently across the country.

VOICE: Will you support a leader who said Jesus' teachings can lead to Naziism? Or who attacks Christian pastors for preaching the full gospel?

GLENN: Full gospel.

PAT: Full gospel.

GLENN: Hang on just a second. In ancient mythology aren't there half beast, half people? That might be what it is.

PAT: Might be one of them.

GLENN: It might be one of those.

STU: Is that, like, on the directions when she's reading the script? Does it say try to cry in the middle of the word?

GLENN: No, I think this is the first ad campaign, first political ad campaign that has ever been run against me. Remember I'm not running for anything.

PAT: And what are you a leader of?

STU: Yeah.

PAT: Because she does say, would you follow a leader who blah, blah blah.

GLENN: Oh, and she is not implying that some leader would just appear who is saying this? I'm the leader?

PAT: You're the leader.

GLENN: Am I the leader of the club?

PAT: Yes, you're the leader.

GLENN: For you and me?

PAT: Yes.

STU: Yes.

GLENN: M I C K E Y.

PAT: M O U S E.

GLENN: Oh, that is great.

STU: Despite the fact that we've only played about three seconds of this, they do actually eventually get to you.

GLENN: Okay. All right. Go ahead.

VOICE: Then why do so many Christians tune in to Glenn Beck? By deriding pastors —

GLENN: Hold on just a second. Because that's how evil I am. Sometimes the power of darkness is so strong that you just can't even see it. And I'm the one, I'm the one using the power of darkness.

VOICE: Preach that justice taught by Jesus and the prophets. Glenn Beck has urged listeners to follow his piecemeal gospel.

STU: Really?

VOICE: Scripture teaches that the tongue can be like a small fire that sets a whole forest ablaze, and Christians are caught in —

GLENN: Hold on just a second. I've got to try that.

STU: Can you do that?

PAT: Set a forest on fire with your tongue?

GLENN: I don't know. Do I have to rub my tongue against someone else's tongue to get the spark?

PAT: No, I think you are so evil that fire shoots from your tongue.

GLENN: Huh.

PAT: And burns forests.

GLENN: Okay, go ahead.

VOICE: Not to praise God in one breath while cursing those made in God's likeness in the next.

PAT: What?

VOICE: Glenn Beck has the right to speak his mind and Christians can disagree with each other, but we must do so out of a spirit of love and truth. Learn more about what Glenn Beck says about Christian pastors and the Bible at faithfulAmerica.org.

PAT: Love and truth, and there's not a word of truth in this stinking ad but she's concerned about speaking with love and truth.

GLENN: I would like this ad to continue to run.

PAT: Wow. Yeah? You like that?

GLENN: I would love this ad, and maybe — and maybe I have information that others don't. But I think it would be great for this ad to run a lot. Is there another one?

PAT: No, this is the one.

GLENN: Is this the one?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Play it again from the top, will you?

PAT: And maybe we can make it all the way through.

GLENN: We'll make it all the way through.

VOICE: Will you support a leader who said Jesus' teachings can lead to Naziism or who attacks Christian pastors for preaching the full gospel? And why do so many Christians tune in to Glenn Beck? By did he riding pastors who preach that justice taught by Jesus and the prophets, Glenn Beck has urged listeners to follow his piecemeal gospel. Scripture teaches that the tongue can be like a small fire that sets a whole forest ablaze.

GLENN: Yes.

VOICE: And Christians are cautioned not to praise God in one breath while cursing those made in God's likeness in the next. Glenn Beck has the right to speak his mind, and Christians can disagree with each other, but we must do so out of a spirit of love and truth.

PAT: Love.

VOICE: Learn more about what Glenn Beck says about Christian pastors and the Bible at faithfulAmerica.org.

PAT: I went to faithfulAmerica.org to learn more.

GLENN: Did you?

PAT: Yeah. And here's just a few things that they stand for. They are an online community of tens of thousands of citizens motivated by faith to take action on the pressing moral issues of our time. They come from diverse faith traditions but share a unifying commitment to restore community and uphold common good in America. And, across the globe. But here's what they want to do: End poverty and promote economic security for all. They want to promote peace and restore America's commitment to human rights and diplomacy. They want to prevent — and this is such a good spiritual message — prevent the catastrophic effects of climate change. Climate change.

GLENN: Climate change.

PAT: Counter hate speech and misinformation in the media pertaining to people of faith, and work for welcoming communities where immigrants and people of all faiths are welcome. This is the Obama administration.

GLENN: Joe. Joe in here?

PAT: He is in here.

GLENN: Would you get — call James Robison or James Dobson or Richard Land and get one of them on the phone so we can talk.

Now, I don't know, you know, any Christian pastors but we'll have to check with maybe Richard Land. Maybe Dr. Dobson.

STU: Yeah, but he's going to just yell at you for preaching false gospel, I'm sure.

GLENN: I know. I know.

PAT: He's going to say stop setting forest fires with your tongue.

GLENN: I know.

PAT: That's what he's going to do.

GLENN: I know he is. And we'll just ask him about social justice. Just ask him about social justice. The full gospel.

PAT: The full.

GLENN: Now, here's what's really interesting. Didn't she in this say that you should tell the truth? You shouldn't say you love the gospel and then tear those — what is it?

PAT: Who are made in the image of God.

GLENN: Made in the image of God apart. Can we play — we're going to take a quick break and then when we come back, I want to play the audio of Barack Obama where he said that you are bearing false witness against thy brother and breaking the Ten Commandments by saying that he was going to provide abortions on demand and that's now what we're doing in two different states through HHS. We'll have to play that weird, weird, weird, weird... weird statement from Barack Obama.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.

The former ambassador to Russia under the Obama Administration, Michael McFaul, came up with "7 Pillars of Color Revolution," a list of seven steps needed to incite the type of revolution used to upend Eastern European countries like Ukraine and Georgia in the past two decades. On his TV special this week, Glenn Beck broke down the seven steps and showed how they're happening right now in America.

Here are McFaul's seven steps:

1. Semi-autocratic regime (not fully autocratic) – provides opportunity to call incumbent leader "fascist"

2. Appearance of unpopular president or incumbent leader

3. United and organized opposition – Antifa, BLM

4. Effective system to convince the public (well before the election) of voter fraud

5. Compliant media to push voter fraud narrative

6. Political opposition organization able to mobilize "thousands to millions in the streets"

7. Division among military and police


Glenn explained each "pillar," offering examples and evidence of how the Obama administration laid out the plan for an Eastern European style revolution in order to completely upend the American system.

Last month, McFaul made a obvious attempt to downplay his "color revolutions" plan with the following tweet:

Two weeks later, he appeared to celebrate step seven of his plan in this now-deleted tweet:



As Glenn explains in this clip, the Obama administration's "7 Pillars of Color Revolution" are all playing out – just weeks before President Donald Trump takes on Democratic candidate Joe Biden in the November election.

Modern eugenics: Will Christians fight this deadly movement?

Photo by Olga Kononenko on Unsplash

Last month, without much fanfare, a new research paper disclosed that 94 percent of Belgian physicians support the killing of new-born babies after birth if they are diagnosed with a disability.

A shocking revelation indeed that did not receive the attention it demanded. Consider this along with parents who believe that if their unborn babies are pre-diagnosed with a disability, they would choose to abort their child. Upwards of 70 percent of mothers whose children are given a prenatal disability diagnosis, such as Down Syndrome, abort to avoid the possibility of being burdened with caring for a disabled child.

This disdain for the disabled hits close to home for me. In 1997, my family received a letter from Michael Schiavo, the husband of my sister, Terri Schiavo, informing us that he intended to petition a court to withdraw Terri's feeding tube.

For those who do not remember, in 1990, at the age of 26, Terri experienced a still-unexplained collapse while at home with Michael, who subsequently became her legal guardian. Terri required only love and care, food and water via feeding tube since she had difficulty swallowing as a result of her brain injury. Nonetheless, Michael's petition was successful, and Terri's life was intentionally ended in 2005 by depriving her of food and water, causing her to die from dehydration and starvation. It took almost two excruciating weeks.

Prior to my sister's predicament, the biases that existed towards persons with disabilities had been invisible to me. Since then, I have come to learn the dark history of deadly discrimination towards persons with disabilities.

Indeed, some 20 years prior to Germany's T4 eugenics movement, where upwards of 200,000 German citizens were targeted and killed because of their physical or mental disability, the United States was experiencing its own eugenics movement.

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas documented some of this history in his concurring opinion in Box v. Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky, Inc., Justice Thomas describes how eugenics became part of the academic curriculum being taught in upwards of 400 American universities and colleges.

It was not solely race that was the target of the U.S. eugenics movement. Eugenicists also targeted the institutionalized due to incurable illness, the physically and cognitively disabled, the elderly, and those with medical dependency.

In 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court handed down Roe v. Wade, which wiped out pro-life laws in nearly every state and opened the floodgates to abortion throughout the entirety of pregnancy. Since then, 60 million children have been killed. Abortion as we know it today has become a vehicle for a modern-day eugenics program.

Since the Catholic Church was established, the Truth of Christ was the greatest shield against these types of attacks on the human person and the best weapon in the fight for equality and justice. Tragically, however, for several decades, the Church has been infiltrated by modernist clergy, creating disorder and confusion among the laity, perverting the teachings of the Church and pushing a reckless supposed “social justice" agenda.

My family witnessed this firsthand during Terri's case. Church teaching is clear: it is our moral obligation to provide care for the cognitively disabled like Terri. However, Bishop Robert Lynch, who was the bishop of the Diocese of St. Petersburg, Florida, during Terri's case, offered no support and was derelict in his duties during the fight for Terri's life.

Bishop Lynch had an obligation to use his position to protect Terri from the people trying to kill her and to uphold Church teaching. Indeed, it was not only the silence of Bishop Lynch but that of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), which also remained silent despite my family's pleas for help, that contributed to Terri being needlessly starved and dehydrated to death.

My family's experience, sadly, has turned out to be more of the rule than the exception. Consider what happened to Michael Hickson. Hickson was a 36-year-old, brain-injured person admitted to a Texas hospital after contracting COVID-19. Incredibly—and against the wishes of Michael's wife—the hospital decided not to treat Michael because they arbitrarily decided that his “quality of life" was “unacceptably low" due to his pre-existing disability. Michael died within a week once the decision not to treat him was imposed upon him despite the efforts of his wife to obtain basic care for her husband.

During my sister's case and our advocacy work with patients and their families, it would have been helpful to have a unified voice coming from our clergy consistently supporting the lives of our medically vulnerable. We desperately need to see faithful Catholic pastoral witness that confounds the expectations of the elite by pointing to Jesus Christ and the moral law.

A Church that appears more concerned with baptizing the latest social and political movements is a Church that may appear to be “relevant," but one that may also find itself swallowed up by the preoccupations of our time.

As Catholics, we know all too well the reluctance of priests to preach on issues of abortion, euthanasia, assisted suicide, and other pro-life issues. We have heard that the Church cannot risk becoming too political.

At the same time, some within the Church are now openly supporting Black Lives Matter, an organization that openly declares itself hostile to the family, to moral norms as taught by the Church, and whose founders embrace the deadly ideology of Marxism.

For example, Bishop Mark J. Seitz of El Paso, Texas, knelt in prayer with a cardboard sign asserting his support for this ideology.

Recently, during an online liturgy of the mass, Fr. Kenneth Boller at The Church of St. Francis Xavier in New York, led the congregation with what appears to sound like questions affirming the BLM agenda. Moreover, while reading these questions, pictures of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery, assumed victims of racial injustice, were placed on the altar of St. Francis Xavier Church, a place typically reserved for Saints of the Catholic Church.

Contrast these two stories with what happened in the Diocese of Lafayette, Indiana, where Rev. Theodore Rothrock of St. Elizabeth Seton Church fell victim to the ire of Bishop Timothy Doherty. Fr. Rothrock used strong language in his weekly church bulletin criticizing the Black Lives Matter movement and its organizers. Consequently, Bishop Doherty suspended Fr. Rothrock from public ministry.

In 1972, Pope Pius VI said, “The smoke of Satan has entered the temple of God." It seems that too many of our clergy today are enjoying the smell.

I encourage all who are concerned about the human right to life and about Christ-centered reforms in our culture and our Church to raise your voices for pastoral leadership in every area of our shared lives as Christian people.
