GLENN: The first day I mentioned social justice, the sky opened up. Do you remember that? Well, it continues now because I'm not only on social justice, I'm on the president's idea of collective salvation, which is that Jesus doesn't save you personally. You accepting Jesus doesn't save you. There's no salvation there. That's your first step. Now your salvation is dependent on the collective salvation. So you must save everybody because we're all going to be saved together.

PAT: I don't even understand how that works. But you've been talking about it on Fox the last week or so and Christian Science Monitor has a story today, the great national mystery over President Obama's religion: Islamic, follower of Reverend Jeremiah Wright, adherent to the Sunday morning church of golf? Has a new twist. How about like this is a new twist? How about Latin American liberation theology? What do you mean new twist?

GLENN: New twist?

PAT: Where have you been for four years?

GLENN: Where is Christian Science Monitor?

PAT: Hello?

GLENN: I actually had to write some pastors this morning and say, what's up with the Christian Science Monitor? And they just laughed. They're like, hello?

PAT: You don't know?

GLENN: You don't know the Christian Science Monitor? And I'm like, no, I thought it was a good Christian magazine. They're like, no, Glenn, no.

PAT: No.

GLENN: No, it's been gobbled up by the left.

PAT: So they go on to question us even bringing this up. Is the Monitor aware he was a member of a liberation theology church for 20 years? Just enjoy hearing stuff he didn't believe? Is that what it was? I'm going to sit here because I don't agree with anything he said. I don't agree with any of this.

STU: That's a lot of dedication.

PAT: It is.

STU: That you don't agree with.

PAT: It is.

GLENN: This isn't like some people in the church believe that this is what's on their own web page. These are the books they sell in their church bookstore.

PAT: Yeah. It's not a secret. Jeremiah Wright is an adherent to Black Liberation Theology.

GLENN: So is Michael Pfleger.

PAT: So is Pfleger.

GLENN: And I contend that Jim Wallis is a version of liberation theology.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: I mean, he's a Marxist. And liberation theology, the history of it is Marxism. They couldn't get into the South American churches or government because the church was too strong. So they had to come up with a way to model Marxism as charity and get into the churches and corrupt ask any Catholic. Ask any Catholic about liberation theology and what it did to the Catholic church in South America.

PAT: Well, listen to their description of it. They say right here, rather, he said, it is liberation theology. And then this is their description of it: A Catholic movement aligned with Marxism that originated in Latin America. That's exactly what it is.

GLENN: It is.

PAT: That's exactly what it is, that's exactly what he practiced, that's exactly what Jeremiah Wright preaches. So they went to a they went to Harold Attridge who is the dean of the Yale Divinity School and he calls this a classic shell game on your part, Glenn.

GLENN: A classic shell on my part?

PAT: A classic shell game. He says

GLENN: Wait, wait. What's the shell game? That I

STU: You took the shell of the war of liberation theology and put the shell onto the website of the church that he went to for two decades.

PAT: That's a good shell game if you can do it.

GLENN: I'm confused. Is there a pea underneath that shell?

PAT: He says there are many Americans with views of Christian faith that align with what the president believes Dr. Attridge says.

STU: That's true. I mean, many Americans.

GLENN: There are many Americans. 48% of African Americans don't recognize his Christianity. Remember how you always said that

PAT: I think it's 46.

GLENN: I'm sorry, I'm sorry.

PAT: Nice spin.

GLENN: Nice spin. You notice how everybody says, oh, yeah, everybody in the African community. Remember when they came out with Jeremiah Wright and they said, white people don't understand the African American church. Well, apparently 46% of African Americans don't understand the African American church.

STU: Which is more than do recognize it because there's other categories, you know, it's not just yes and no. It was, you know, that was the poll talking about whether Barack Obama was a Muslim and that was the only thing that anyone publicized out of that poll. But 46% of black voters said that they didn't recognize his recommendation that he was a Christian.

GLENN: Now, I want you to know I went to the National Cathedral and I think you have to take a visit to the National Cathedral. It's amazing. But I believe I saw a bunch of white people in there and I believe they also understand Barack Obama's theology. I think it's the same kind of it's a liberation, a big bad oppressor. There are victims. And the government must get involved and help all the victims and the government has been bad in the past, so now we're going to use that same thing that is really bad, oppressive structure to free people.

STU: Right, but that's still, you know, you look at percentage of the nation, that's a small view. I mean, liberation theology is not the most popular religion in America. I mean, there certainly adheres to it.

GLENN: Here's the gateway, social justice. As understood as the government has to do these things. That's the gateway. That's how they get you in to and tie it right directly to the gospel. How do they explain collective salvation in this, Pat?

PAT: Well, it's coming. This is nothing but political rhetoric, according to Dr. Attridge who says that you have a very narrow view of what constitutes true Christianity. And by the way, this is sad, Dr. Attridge but now I'm afraid Glenn's going to have to expose you.

GLENN: (Laughing).

STU: Really?

PAT: Yeah, yeah.

STU: Wow.

GLENN: Wow.

PAT: We're going to have to look into your background, who are you, what do you believe, Dr. Attridge.

GLENN: And

PAT: Oh, yes!

GLENN: And if he floats, he's a witch!

PAT: (Laughing).

GLENN: What is that?

PAT: But he says, okay, so here's his explanation. Here's his terrible explanation of collective salvation.

GLENN: Yes.

PAT: Notes the tradition of individual responsibility to the larger community, runs deep in Christian teachings. He notes, for instance, in Matthew 25 Jesus says that what one does to the smallest member of a community one has done to Christ. What?

GLENN: That's charity.

PAT: How is that collective salvation? That's charity.

GLENN: That's charity. We're talking about

PAT: There's no dispute on that.

GLENN: We're talking about collective salvation.


 

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."
