Are we a nation divided?

What a blessed weekend Tania and I had. I asked for your prayers on Friday as I have a tough week ahead of me. I have a few TV specials and am off radio all week, then back on September 2 with a whole new season of great stuff.

This weekend we were so deeply touched. We spent time meeting with those who, on the surface, are very different than us.

We went to meet with the Archbishop of Los Angeles on Friday.

What a good and decent man. While we don't agree on everything, we do agree on this: Hearts are growing cold. We are a nation divided against itself and we must change that by working toward reconciliation. It will be found through service and love. A reconciliation with each other and the truth of who we are and who in the end we all answer to.

Then, we spent Sunday morning with our religion followed by a service at Joel Osteen's Lakewood Church in Houston. I spoke with Joel and Victoria before and after the service. They are always so kind and gentle. While again, we might disagree on "religion", just as I might have with the Archbishop, we are in total agreement on faith. We all agree that revolution is not needed but instead a "servalution", as Joel called it.

Service to our fellow man IS service to God. Service will soften our hearts and in turn will turn our country and world.

Then tonight, fourteen friends came to my home back in Dallas to hold a gospel worship service. I am not even sure what "religion" they are. We failed to worry about that. :) We instead shared our mutual faith. Faith that tells us all that nothing is too big for God. He is a God that creates not divides and never wounds but always heals.

They sang and sang and sang, while I prayed and read and listened to them and Him. It was a night of songs of comfort, unity and healing. Wow.

How blessed we are. I will share a short video with you. It doesn't do it justice.

What great voices and friends. Coming to praise and comfort, sing and pray, and laugh and cry all in joy!

So many friends that love and serve God. All coming together. Each strong in their own religion and because of that fact, they are unafraid to stand with someone completely different than them in so many ways. As this white bread, damn near albino Mormon, sang with fourteen black and Hispanic (maybe two white people too) gospel singers, I realized how blessed we are as a people.

We are a nation divided by political interests but we are not a nation divided when we focus on principles and values. When we do that, it is amazing how much we find in each other where we are almost exactly alike!

We really have so much in common. This weekend in all of my conversations I found that we all feel like an outcast because those in or out of our own religion question our motives, or faith.

Yet, we all came together under the banner of love, service and love of God.

I figure, If everybody I know is in my religion or everyone I know loves Jesus, I just don't know enough people.

Let me share something really dynamic and true.

"Something has begun."

Something full of joy. Something bigger than you or I can imagine. Something born of God. There will be no one "leader." Instead, it will be millions of us coming together to help, inspire, lift up, love and heal. It is going to be amazing, if we "let go and let God", as us alcoholics say. :)

Good and God are coming in a big way. I have no idea what role religion plays. That is up to the churches, I suppose. But I know this, millions of those who attend those churches (and will continue to do so) will join with others who have deep faith and even those with no religion and we will, together, practice what Ben Franklin called the "American religion."

There is a God

He will judge us

We should serve Him.

The best way to serve Him is to serve our fellow man.

... And America will find herself again, she will be good again and we will save ourselves and our children from the hatred, rage and injustice so many feel tonight. All will be right and well.

PS: In between these incredible encounters, I had an amazing series of email exchanges about being a better man and better people with my favorite atheist Penn Jillette. Followed by a great hour with another friend who is agnostic about how we can help each other reach more people with the message of love, charity and decency.

I am sure many in their circle tell them the same thing. "How can you be friends with that guy, he is a religious freak etc." Just as some in my circle or the circle of the Archbishop, Joel, my Mormon bishop or the gospel group at my house must hear: "How can you be friends with (him/them)? (He/they) don't believe the same stuff."

Here is the first miracle: We all have so many friends that understand that we don't all have to believe the same thing. In fact, they almost all believe that the world wouldn't be as great of a place if we all had a uni opinion. There are no "loyalty oaths" in the land of the free I understand. What matters is how you live your life and how you treat your fellow man. The rest is up to you and God.

As I learned last night "there is no one greater than Him."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.
