Glenn asks who the real bigot is: the five Tampa Bay Rays players who respectfully declined to wear LGBTQ+ pride patches for religious reasons or the activists who shout people down for saying it's wrong to invite little kids to a drag bar and let them dance for money? Glenn believes the answer is clear: "Evil REQUIRES participation."

GLENN: Now, I want to ask you, who the bigot is. According to the Tampa Bay Times. At least five Rays' baseball players have declined to wear uniforms which feature rainbow logos on their caps and jerseys.
At the time, they opted out, and they said that it wasn't judgmental. It's just a faith-based decision.
They said, it was a really hard decision. Because ultimately, we all said, we want people to know that everybody is welcome and loved here. But when we put our bodies, and I think a lot of guys decide, that if it's just a lifestyle, that maybe. Not that they look down on anybody. Or think the differently.
It's just that maybe we don't want to encourage it. If we believe in Jesus. Who encouraged us to live a lifestyle, that would abstain from that behavior. It's not judgmental. It's not looking down. It's just what we believe the lifestyle that we're encouraged for us to live. And to promote. It's for our good.
Not to withhold. But, again, we love these men and women. We care about them. And we want them to feel safe and welcomed here. So is that bigoted?
Are you a bigot -- a bigot, if you have that stance?
Because I will tell you, this is how the media is defining bigot.
In Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, the local Pride in the Park event, geared towards children, will host a slew of radical LGBT attendees. Including apt if a.
Satanists, and drag queens, who will perform for children in the park.
What the hell is happening in Idaho? On the North Idaho Pride Alliance website, the Satanic Temple is listed as one of the official groups partnering in the event.
And it will be present to hand out materials, at their booth. They said, they just want people to know, that Satan loves them. Okay. There are all kinds of people now, from Antifa. And from radical groups, that are now traveling to Idaho, to the park, to make sure that those bigots, that have a problem with their kids, having transgender shows. That they don't do anything. That they don't have a voice.
That they don't cause any trouble.
You know, I'm sorry. We're not bigots.
You're insane, and, quite honestly, I think you're evil.
If you want to indoctrinate kids, like they did here in Dallas. Over the weekend.
Where in a gay club, they invite little kids, to the stage. And you have people giving them money for dances. This is -- this is evil.
I've never understood how in the Scriptures, it would say that one side won't understand the other. And I never understood that. I -- like how?
And that some people will see it clearly, and others will not. And I really thought, when I read that, that you really had to be on the lookout. You had to have super sleuth eyes. That you had to be, you know, on super Jesus team. To be able to see that. And I always worried, holy cow, am I going to be able to see those things?
It is so obvious. And I'm not on the super Jesus team. I know a lot of people who are -- are much better on the Jesus team than I am.
And it's so clear. How does half our country not see that having transgender story time, for little kids, is insanity. How do they not see that?
Has everybody just gone so dead asleep? So is it bigoted for the Rays? For five guys on the Rays, to say, hey, we love everybody. We want you to feel welcome. But we just don't want to participate in that.
And that's the key word. Evil requires participation. You can walk away from anything. You don't like it, fine. But evil requires you to participate. There's a -- there's a story going on now, Ron DeSantis was scheduled to speak, to the Jewish leadership conference. At the museum of Jewish heritage, in New York City.
Well, they set it all up. And then, all of the political people decided that they -- they can't have Ron DeSantis speak there, at the museum of Jewish heritage in New York City.
So it was canceled. Because Ron DeSantis didn't align with the museum's values and its message of inclusivity. Can I ask you? Which one is shunning people?
Which one is driving people away? Which one is inclusive?
The one that says, if you don't say everything we believe, and you don't do what we say to do within you're out. Is that inclusive?
Again, I go back to, has everyone gone insane. Because it's really not this complex.
I just -- I so -- I so wish I wasn't Glenn Beck. Because I -- I know the left will never listen to me.
Hopefully, they will listen to you when you just ask them simple questions. Really? Do you really think that it's okay to have transgender, while our schools are saying that gender is in question? In kindergarten. You think this is going to be a healthy step for our children is this
Really? How do you arrive at that?
