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.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.
