Glenn Beck: Couple prays 11 year old to death


RELATED STORY


Police: Girl Dies After Parents Pray for Healing Instead of Seeking Medical Help

GLENN: All right. 11-year-old girl died Sunday from treatable form of diabetes. Her parents prayed for her healing rather than seeing medical treatment. The girl's parents, Dale and Leilani Neumann believe she died because they didn't have enough faith. Members of the Neumann family operate the Monkey Mo coffee shop. You wouldn't think that anybody who owned the Monkey Mo coffee shop would be, like, praying their daughter to health without any medical treatment, do you?

STU: Why? Why not?

GLENN: I don't know. Monkey Mo coffee shop kinds like fun.

STU: Kind of sounds organic, like maybe the coffee bean might cure the diabetes.

GLENN: No, they would be pissed. They wouldn't put -- Monkey Mo, it's kind of like Monkey Mo, let's go to the Monkey Mo coffee shop. If you are a, you know, environmental hippie, you are like, "It's the monkey coffee shop and we shouldn't even call it monkeys. Monkeys, who are we to say monkeys? Monkeys are far better than us."

STU: Well, we invented the language.

GLENN: Getting the coffee shops, getting the coffee beans out of the rainforest, leaving our footprints in the rainforest? The monkeys weep right now.

So what they did is they put a sign on the business window that said, closed due to a family emergency but the family decided that instead of getting treatment for her diabetes that could be treated, they just prayed over here. Now, here's where I stand on this one. In fact, Stu, I would like you to refresh my memory. Do you remember the last time one of these things happened? Not with a cancer kid. Because I was for the cancer kid. Where was that, Houston or some place like that? Where the kid had cancer?

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: And he wanted alternative treatment? And I stood up and said he was 16 years old and if the parent said the 16-year-old -- wasn't that --

STU: Yeah, I don't remember exact age but it was -- yeah.

GLENN: He was like 16. He had already had chemotherapy and he was like, please don't do it again, please don't do it again, I can't take it, let's find some other alternative medicine. And, you know, hippie dad was like, yeah, right, dude, try this. And he went and they sought alternative medicine and it didn't work and the kid died and they were going to try to take the kid away and force him to have chemotherapy and I believe I was on the side of the parent.

STU: I think you were as well.

GLENN: Okay. Think back to the last time a kid died, though, before that where somebody was praying. I believe it was like two or three years ago and I was against the parents and said I'm torn but I'm going to give it to the state.

STU: I think your long-term --

GLENN: Curve? Stu -- curve on this has been that you -- has to be something rational and obvious. If there isn't any borderline about it, you've been with a parent in saying, look, they can parent their kid however they want. But if it's, you know, my kid has a knife stabbed in them, I'm not taking them to the hospital. If I pray, they will float away.

GLENN: Diabetes is one of those, totally curable, I mean saveable.

STU: Treatable.

GLENN: Treatable. Diabetes is one of those. If a kid has diabetes, you can treat that. Kid doesn't die.

STU: Right.

GLENN: Okay? So that would be over the -- you know, that's over the rainbow some place where you are like, hey, look, Toto's here and everything -- you're crazy if you don't treat your kid for diabetes. Would you agree?

STU: I certainly would treat my kid for diabetes.

GLENN: So would I. They are trying this -- they are charging this couple with murder. They want to charge them with murder. You are out of your mind. First of all, maybe with neglect, maybe with manslaughter, maybe. You can't do murder. Their intention was not to kill the child. Their intention was to heal the child. But beyond that I'm not willing -- if I'm on the jury, I'm the last guy -- oh, I can't wait. I have jury duty in Connecticut in June.

STU: Do you really?

GLENN: Yes.

STU: How does this keep happening to you?

GLENN: I don't know, but I can only hope they select me. But if I'm on the jury, nope, I'm not going after the parents. Nope. And here's why. I'm not giving this state any more power, none. No more. There is a trust deficit here. Not doing it. I don't trust these people at all.

STU: You know, look. There's a lot of reason to not trust the government. They don't do a very good job. There's a 13% approval rating of congress right now. In fact, there's -- even the Democrats are only at 17% approval of their own congress. So I mean, I understand there's a lot of reason, but isn't there a line where you wind up in a shack at the top of some mountain in a remote place with signs that say "Get off my land." I mean, I think there is some place for the government to exist.

GLENN: May I just answer it with this?

(Music playing).

GLENN: Get off my land! (Gunfire).

STU: Yes, this is you.

GLENN: What kind of scares me is, yes, there is a place with a guy like me with a rifle, you know, with your property backed up to some national park so you could just disappear in the woods and never be found. Oh, yes. Oh, yes. I've noodled it a lot.

STU: Are you -- let me ask you this. I know you've thought about it a lot. Are you comfortable with where you've turned out? This is why I'm asking you.

GLENN: Turn it up. I'm pretty happy with that so far, yep. Talk me out of it.

STU: Well, I think there is some line. Seriously let's take the ridiculous example I just brought out there a minute ago.

GLENN: Which one?

STU: Your kid -- a beam comes down from the ceiling and goes through your child's stomach, okay? It's now sticking through the stomach. Kid's alive. You could pull it out and the surgeon would be okay. And you say, you know what, I'm going to massage these magic beans until the beam leaves the stomach and the kid is magically healed.

GLENN: If I may say, if I may warn America, what Stu really means here is --

STU: Why are you stating it? I just said it.

GLENN: Glenn wants a "You're on your own" society.

STU: No.

GLENN: "Glenn wants to actually continue this kind of thinking."

STU: Well, I guess there is some part of it --

GLENN: Yes, go ahead.

STU: Like, for example, we must feed our infants. They can help themselves.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: So there is a line where there is something other than an "On your own" society.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: We've all recognized that for a millennia.

GLENN: We have, you have, I have. We've all done that. We all know what common sense is. This common sense, does common sense sound like you don't have the constitutional right to be able to homeschool your own child.

STU: I am with you on that.

GLENN: All righty then.

STU: But I don't want children to die for no reason, either.

GLENN: Neither do I.

STU: And if there's a rational -- to me I think I'm probably more on your side than the average person.

GLENN: No, you're not because you don't have a rifle.

STU: I'm leaning to your side because --

GLENN: No, I'm giving the keynote speech at the NRA. Oh, I have rifles. I have lots of rifles.

STU: You don't have to convince me. I'm just saying --

GLENN: And I have acreage and I have a shovel. You'll never be missed. Talk me down from the crazy tree! I don't think it can be done.

Acclaimed environmentalist and author of "Apocalypse Never" Michael Shellenberger joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to warn us about the true goals and effects of climate alarmism: It's become a "secular religion" that lowers standards of living in developed countries, holds developing countries back, and has environmental progress "exactly wrong."

Michael is a Time "Hero of the Environment," Green Book Award winner, and the founder and president of Environmental Progress. He has been called a "environmental guru," "climate guru," "North America's leading public intellectual on clean energy," and "high priest" of the environmental humanist movement for his writings and TED talks, which have been viewed more than 5 million times. But when Michael penned a stunning article in Forbes saying, "On Behalf of Environmentalists, I Apologize for the Climate Scare", the article was pulled just a few hours later. (Read more here.)

On the show, Micheal talked about how environmental alarmism has overtaken scientific fact, leading to a number of unfortunate consequences. He said one of the problems is that rich nations are blocking poor nations from being able to industrialize. Instead, they are seeking to make poverty sustainable, rather than to make poverty history.

"As a cultural anthropologist, I've been traveling to poorer countries and interviewing small farmers for over 30 years. And, obviously there are a lot of causes why countries are poor, but there's no reason we should be helping them to stay poor," Michael said. "A few years ago, there was a movement to make poverty history ... [but] it got taken over by the climate alarmist movement, which has been focused on depriving poor countries, not just of fossil fuels they need to develop, but also the large hydroelectric dams."

He offered the example of the Congo, one of the poorest countries in the world. The Congo has been denied the resources needed to build large hydroelectric dams, which are absolutely essential to pull people out of poverty. And one of the main groups preventing poor countries from the gaining financing they need to to build dams is based in Berkeley, California — a city that gets its electricity from hydroelectric dams.

"It's just unconscionable ... there are major groups, including the Sierra Club, that support efforts to deprive poor countries of energy. And, honestly, they've taken over the World Bank [which] used to fund the basics of development: roads, electricity, sewage systems, flood control, dams," Micheal said.

"Environmentalism, apocalyptic environmentalism in particular, has become the dominant religion of supposedly secular people in the West. So, you know, it's people at the United Nations. It's people that are in very powerful positions who are trying to impose 'nature's order' on societies," he continued. "And, of course, the problem is that nobody can figure out what nature is, and what it's not. That's not a particular good basis for organizing your economy."

Dr. Voddie Baucham, Dean of Theology at African Christian University in Lusaka, Zambia, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to explain why he agrees with Vice President Mike Pence's refusal to say the phrase "Black Lives Matter."

Baucham, who recently drew national attention when his sermon titled "Ethnic Gnosticism" resurfaced online, said the phrase has been trademarked by a dangerous, violent, Marxist movement that doesn't care about black lives except to use them as political pawns.

"We have to separate this movement from the issues," Baucham warned. "I know that [Black Lives Matter] is a phrase that is part of an organization. It is a trademark phrase. And it's a phrase designed to use black people.

"That phrase dehumanizes black people, because it makes them pawns in a game that has nothing whatsoever to do with black people and their dignity. And has everything to do with a divisive agenda that is bigger than black people. That's why I'm not going to use that phrase, because I love black people. I love being black."

Baucham warned that Black Lives Matter -- a radical Marxist movement -- is using black people and communities to push a dangerous and divisive narrative. He encouraged Americans to educate themselves on the organization's agenda and belief statement.

"This movement is dangerous. This movement is vicious. And this movement uses black people," he emphasized. "And so if I'm really concerned about issues in the black community -- and I am -- then I have to refuse, and I have to repudiate that organization. Because they stand against that for which I am advocating."

On last week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck revealed where the Black Lives Matter organization really gets its funding, and the dark money trail leading to a cast of familiar characters. Shortly after the program aired, one of BLM's fiscal sponsors, Thousand Currents, took down its board of directors page, which featured one of these shady characters:

Ex-Marxist professor and author of "Beyond Woke," Michael Rectenwald, joined Glenn Beck on the TV show to fill us in on the suspicious change he discovered on the Thousand Currents webpage and the Communist terrorists who is now helping run the organization. (Fortunately, the internet is forever, so it is still possible to view the board of directors page by looking at a web archive from the WayBack Machine.)

Rectenwald revealed the shocking life history of Thousand Currents' vice chair of the board, Susan Rosenberg, who spent 16 years in federal prison for her part in a series of increasingly violent acts of terrorism, including bombing the U.S. Capitol building, bombing an FBI building, and targeting police for assassination.

"Their whole campaign was one of unbelievably vicious, murderous cop killings, assassinations, and bombings," explained Rectenwald of Rosenberg's terror group known as the May 19th Communist Organization or M19.
