Apparently religious liberty doesn't apply to Christians in Pakistan

Today is the last chance for Asia Bibi, a Christian woman in Pakistan who's been sentenced to death for her faith. She was sentenced to death by hanging in 2010. Her crime? On a hot day, thirsty and overworked, she drank from the same water container as some Islamic women she was working with. They demanded she convert to Islam. Then, they say, she insulted Muhammed, the Muslim prophet. She denies having ever done so. She only wanted a drink of water from a dirty water container. But even if she did, what insult would ever be bad enough to warrant death by hanging?

How, in 2018, is it still okay for a country to have anti-blasphemy laws that carry automatic death sentences? Laws that are widely backed by millions of people, by the way, so this is no radical idea.

Today is the last chance Bibi has to appeal her death sentence.

Her lawyer spoke with journalists:

"I am a 100 percent sure she will be acquitted. She has a very good case."

But even if she succeeds, she would remain in prison for years.

Her lawyer is himself in great danger, simply by defending her. He has around-the-clock security at his house.

"I have lost my health," he told journalists. "I am a high blood pressure patient, my privacy is totally lost. You have to be in hiding. [Everyone knows who I am, and they] look at this house and they know this is the home of a person who can be killed at any time by angry mullahs."

He also has watched as others who tried to defend Bibi have been murdered. This level of intolerance is nauseating. It's barbaric. Yet you will not hear about it on college campuses. You won't see it reported on any mainstream network. You won't read about it in the New York Times. Apparently religious liberties don't apply to Christians. Because a woman is being sentenced to death for being a Christian. By a government. Not by some radical faction, either.

How long are we going to skirt around such dangerous ideas?

How long are we going to skirt around such dangerous ideas? How long are feminists and social justice types going to scream about mansplaining yet remain silent on atrocities like those happening all throughout the world in the name of a certain religion. Forgive me if I don't even want to say the name. The cost of misspeaking is just too high.

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"
