Glenn Beck: Obama omits 'Creator' again...



Vote and Comment: Obama Continues to Omit ‘Creator’ From Declaration of Independence

GLENN: First of all, in this debate with Coons and O'Donnell, you have the evolution coming up again. Why is evolution coming up? It is critical. First of all, they're trying to paint her as a crazy Christian

PAT: Witch.

GLENN: Christian.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Who's going to jam everything down your throat in a Wiccan sort of way as a Christian. And so they are trying to make her look crazy. But more importantly, you have to understand why evolution is so important. And we just explained that for a second. But you remember if God didn't create, if things evolved, then your rights evolve. You're not endowed by your Creator. It's interesting. You're not endowed by your Creator with certain inalienable because your rights evolve. Just like you go from a monkey to a man, you go from simple rights to higher rights, and somebody has to take those rights and give them to you and take them away or change them. This is again the evolutionary thinking of progressivism. President Obama just gave yet another speech.

PAT: And in it once again he omitted the word Creator from

GLENN: How many times, America, is this man going to talk about collective salvation, which is "I've got to save all the half monkey people or I don't get saved." It is, it is an affront to Christianity. And when I say Christianity, I know there are people like Jim Wallis, you know, who vehemently disagree. I know there are Marxists out there that believe in the liberation theology which is, again, collective salvation. I get that. And I know there are a lot of Christians out there that don't think I'm a Christian because I'm a Mormon. I testify to you now that Jesus Christ is my savior and He saved me. The only reason why I am alive today is because of the atonement of Jesus Christ. Period. So let's move on.

Here's what you need to understand. There is a difference in the idea of Christianity and how we all practice but not of the salvation and atonement of Jesus Christ. If you are a Christian, Jesus Christ is the savior. Through him your sins are washed away. He has the only power to save. Only Jesus Christ.

PAT: Well, what about collectively? Like if my salvation is tied into your salvation. So

GLENN: I don't know why you have to do this.

PAT: Say then that's the only way. If you're saved, then I can be saved.

GLENN: So it is an affront to Christianity. It is the antithesis, right? The exact opposite of what is preached, or supposed to be preached by Christians. That is the Gospel. Not the social gospel, not, you know, the new social justice that's the Gospel gospel, period. And if you want to change it, well, then just say "I'm changing it." But they don't ever do that. They let it evolve, slowly. Again, evolution. Now, what is the president saying in the speeches? How many times does he have to omit the word "Creator" in our Declaration of Independence? And then brush it off like it's not important? It is gigantic.

PAT: He's done it at least three times including this one.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: These truths to be self evident that all men are created equal...

GLENN: Pause, pause, pause.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Endowed with certain inalienable rights.

PAT: There it is. Endowed.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Life and liberty.

GLENN: Endowed by who?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Pursuit of happiness.

GLENN: Endowed by whom?

PAT: Well, it got the notice of Les Kinsolving who is a White House correspondent and he asked Gibbs about it.

KINSOLVING: questions. Twice in recent weeks the president has quoted on the Declaration

VOICE: It's been four times now.

PAT: It's four now.

GLENN: It's four.

REPORTER: Has omitted the declaration's reference to rights, quote, endowed by their Creator. Why did he omit this part of the declaration?

GIBBS: I haven't seen the comments, Lester, but I can assure you the president believes in the Declaration of Independence.

PAT: Again that wasn't the question.

GLENN: That's not the question. And, of course, he believes in the Declaration of Independence? Why would you say "Of course"? Woodrow Wilson didn't believe in the Declaration of Independence. Progressives don't believe in the Declaration of Independence! They believe it exists, they believe it was written, but in their honest moments, which you can find very few of them, will they tell you anything but this: "Declaration of Independence is an old document. It relates to the things that were going on in 1775 and 76, and there's very little we can take from it. It's not an official document, it has nothing to do with our law. It was a severance from a king, and it's really the the beginning of it is really not applicable to today, and the rest of it is just a list of demands."

Read the words of Woodrow Wilson and take it from there. Start there. And then look at all of the progressives and what they actually say about the Declaration of Independence. It is a document that they can quote but they don't believe it has any relevance at all. My gosh, they don't even think the Constitution has any relevance! And that one they know as real relevance. They know they've got to go to the Constitution, but they dismiss the Constitution. "Well, the Constitution is wrong. Well, that's just an old dusty document." Why would the Declaration of Independence have any meaning to them? It doesn't! It doesn't. And this is where one of the fundamental splits is in America. This is why there are two Americas right now. Because half of America has been taught that it doesn't really matter, it's all evolving, it's all breathing, we are evolving!

The other half of America was taught reverence. They were taught respect. They were taught that these words were sacred. That all men are created equal and endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights. But that was those were sacred words! That's the essence of who we are. No. The "Creator" was put there for a reason. Why? If you want to just look at it as a stupid document that was just, oh, it's just 200 years old, it was some OT or something, I don't even know what it was about. You look at it as historic document. Why did they use the word "Creator" there? Why? Because it gave power to the individual to sever themselves from an oppressive government. The government's argument was, "You can't do that. You don't have any right to do that. We're the government. We're the king. You can't sever yourself from it. You are his subject." No. We are subjects of only one king. God is our king. Once you cut God out of it, you become a subject again.

Did you learn that in school? Better yet, are your kids learning that in school? Everybody tries to make it, "Well, look at what a ridiculous, what a stupid who cares and he said Creator." Who cares if he says Creator? First of all, every American should care for a couple of reasons. What was Franklin's definition of the American religion? Oh, yeah, that there is a God, we'll meet Him, he gets kind of testy sometimes, you should serve Him, and the best way to serve Him is to serve your fellow man. Let's concentrate on the whole "He gets testy sometimes." Can we be on the side of God, please? Can we recognize Him in our society? Can we recognize divine providence? If we don't, we shall perish. Period.

 

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

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.
