In this clip, Glenn shares recent headlines that show just how troubled American society has become. And even worse, shocking poll numbers about religion in America prove just how fast evil is spreading. So, Christians are becoming discouraged. And, as a result of that discouragement, they’re abandoning God for more ‘hardline’ solutions to ‘clean up the mess,’ Glenn explains. But that is NOT the correct answer to solve this madness. In this clip, Glenn shares what the ONLY solution must be and the first step we all must take: 'It’s absolutely evil, and it’s time we start calling it by name.'

GLENN: So listen to this. How far has America come? This is from Mandell Maughanh, from the Daily Caller.
He is an opinion writer. He said, in C.S. Lewis' 1945 science fiction novel, That Hideous Strength, a group of Christian dissidents joined forces with the resurrected wizard Merlin to fight a techno Satanist conspiracy, that threatens to engulf Britain and then the world. After learning that Christianity has been torn to pieces, and speaks with a divided voice, merlin makes a bold suggestion: If all this West, all this west part of the world is apostate, might it not be lawful in our great need to look further, beyond Christianity.
Today, in our country, where progressives are rapidly mainstreaming Satanism, and the Oval Office is occupied by a devout Catholic, in parentheses, who praises the chemical castration of children. Many Americans are asking themselves the same question. You know, the one thing that bothers me about this. Is I don't just we've tried Christianity. I don't think we've been. It's kind of like the Bill of Rights. People are like, we got rid of the Constitution, it just doesn't work. We haven't done it for like 100 years. So, and have we really done Christianity?
I know a lot of people say they're Christian. I say I'm Christian. But I don't know. Do we live it every single take?
Are we striving to be closer to God, and to be better Christians? I haven't seen that movement. I feel like it's starting to bubble. But before we give up on Christianity, can we, I don't know, let's give it a whirl. Let's give it a whirl.
Six years ago, conservative Christians marched against Sharia law. Today, many would rather live under the Islamic crescent than under the Pride flag. And that might turn out to be the choice on offer.
Christians are slowly painfully learning that neutrality is a myth. Traditional adherence to the two faiths have already met common cause in resisting progressive tyranny. Anti-feminist. Anti-trans commentary from conservative Christian pundits like Matt Walsh and Candace Owens, have circulated widely among traditional Muslims.
In Dearborn, Michigan, Muslim parents have shut down a school board meeting after learning that a school board library, included among other titles, a guide book explaining the ins and outs of gay sex. Some figures on the fringes of the right are even praising or embracing Islam. This should bother you. And this is one step closer to the line that I fear we're walking right up to. And the only solution is Christianity. Practice Christianity. Love thy neighbor -- why is it being overwritten? Because Christians are losing hope, and saying, well, this isn't work. You haven't practiced religion, I contend, for most people. So what are they doing? They're looking for someone that is a little more hardlined to clean up the mess.
This is exactly what happened in Germany. Weimar republic. Been talking about this recently. Weimar republic, the first trans surgery happens in 1925. They open a university of sexology. They start pumping out LGBTQ and transgender stuff. It permeates the culture. That's what the movie Cabaret is really all about. It permeates the culture.
It degrades the culture. It starts to seep into the school. Pedophilia rears its ugly head. And people have had enough of it.
When there is another choice, they try and fight. But the churches are already dead.
And so people look to something else. And the something else, is Adolf Hitler.
Because the first year or so, all he's talking about is making Germans moral again. And so he goes in, and he destroys it.
And what did everyone say? All the people said, well, you know what, he is so ridiculous. No one is ever going to listen to him. But he'll get the job done, and then we'll take back the power. It doesn't work that way. I don't want to live under a -- a crescent flag, thank you. Sharia law, not for me. But the left is pushing and pushing and pushing. Monday night, the Los Angeles Dodgers announced that they had reversed course again, and now have reinvited the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, to be honored at their June 16, Pride Night Festivities.
The drag queens, who dress as nuns, accepted an apology, and will receive the community hero award, at the Dodgers Tenth Annual LGBTQ+ Pride night. They are being cited for the life-saving work that they have done tirelessly.
So these, quote, unquote, nuns, all drag queens. Their slogan is go forth and sin some more.
Are doing life-saving work. Uh-huh. They're also mocking Christians. They are, you know, diabolical in -- in nature. Opposing the things that Christians believe. So the Dodgers said, we're not going to do this, because the Catholics went crazy. Well, apparently Catholics don't have as much power anymore as the drag queen community.
Let me give you this story. You remember a story I told you about the transgender pedophile? That took his 7-year-old daughter and made movies with her and other pedophiles. And they were rape movies over and over and over again. And it was absolutely horrendous.
Okay. He was convicted. He's now in the women's prison. And he is suing now. Because he says, he and the entire Wiccan population at the prison. He's a witch. He said, they've suffered religious discrimination, and we seek religious accommodations.
Now, as TheBlaze reported a couple of weeks ago, after serving as president of the Clark County Queer Association, he started an amateur transgendered pornography film business. He and three other degenerates. One of them is now a fellow inmate at the women's prison with him.
There's two guys now fully intact in the women's prison. He -- he did what the judge said was, if not heinous, cruel, and depraved, I don't know what is. So he was convicted. He was sent into prison.
He and his fellow transvestic child rapists are there, and they are trying to hold religious services. And he wants certain items, including a witch's cloak.
That's a brown hoodless cloak. It is one of the personal religious items that he says he needs. Other items, the book Of Shadows. A divination tool. Pentacles. Pentagrams. Ruin cards. Salt. And chalices. I don't know. I say no. I say no.
This is -- this is -- this is why John Adams said: If you're not a religious and moral people, this system will fall. It's not made for the opposite.
You have to have your own morals.
You have to have your own standards. And as a society, we have no more standards.
So you can just argue, oh, yeah. The guy is a Satan worshiper. Yeah. Give him the chalice. Sure. Sure.
No. No. Washington State, now spending $83,000 of taxpayer money on training drag queen story hours. Washington State is spending that money, and they're going to feature the director of drag queen story hour.
Hmm. Titled Washington DEI, empowerment conference. The training is set to have talks that include diversity, antiracism, and equity.
Michael -- or Hayden Michaels, the deputy communication director. Of the auspice of financial management said, we expect the cost of putting on the conference to be $83,000.
16 sessions. 5,000 seats, each session.
That's about a dollar per seat, he said. Yeah. I don't think the problem is the money. Really? Quite honestly.
It's a drag story hour, and fireside chat.
How about San Francisco?
They've just named their first drag laureate.
The drag laureate, promoting the city's queer culture and community, mayor declared the official job description as being fabulous, all of the time.
It comes with a $55,000 stipend, for the 18-month position. It's part of the program, from the mayor's office. And the public library.
The Tampa Pride on the river event, been canceled due to a series of anti-groomer bills, passed by the Florida legislature, and signed into law.
Everybody is upset with this, they say.
I have a feeling, not everybody is upset with this. Democratic governor, declares state of emergency, in North Carolina. The democratic governor of North Carolina. Declared the state of emergency, in education. After the legislature voted for school choice.
Now, they voted so quickly and so cleanly on this. He says, they're trying to starve public education by dropping a bomb on public education.
This is the problem here is, they're not choking the life out of it. He doesn't like the ruling. He's going to declare an emergency. Because why?
His veto will be overridden.
High school. Lake Ridge High School.
The students there, the male students had been removing tampon dispensers off the walls of the boy's bathrooms. Apparently, the boys in Oregon state, don't agree with the requirement that public schools supply free tampons and sanitary pads, for boys. Let me tell you again. Boys and men do not menstruate. If you are a boy or a man, there's no need for that product. So why would we put menstruation products into a boy's restroom? Do not deny the truth. Boys don't need that. No matter what society may call them, they are clearly girls, because boys do not menstruate.
So these are the headlines, today. Are we headed in the right direction or the wrong direction? Is our solution, of I guess giving up or teeming with people, who are even -- who have a spine like those who like Sharia law. Is that the right direction?
These numbers have changed a great deal. 34 percent of Americans never go to church. That's the highest recorded in five decades.
Another report from the public religion research institute, said 27 percent of Americans, claim no religion. Up from 19, in 2012.
And 16 percent in 2006. Twenty-seven from 16. The share of Americans who identify as white evangelical Protestants has dwindled from 23 to 14 percent. Share of mainline white Protestants has fallen from 18 to 14. White Catholics have declined from 16 percent. Population to 13.
Now, do we believe in God? Are we going to church? Nearly three-quarters of people, believe in life after death. So 75 percent of us believe in life after death, but just less than 50 percent of us believe in God.
Is this a case for the Space Octopus people? I'm not sure.
Only 7 percent of people do not believe in God. Seven. They're mostly, if not all, are Democrats. Religious scholars say this is the gold standard of surveys on faith. 29 percent of Americans claiming no religion. At all. That is also up.
So what is happening? Well, as we are getting less and less religious, and I'm not pushing any religion.
Because I -- I find God myself.
But religion -- religion is a framework.
And I think we all need different framework.
But my faith gives me the framework that teaches me how to live. To be a Christian.
And whatever that framework is. If you're just going. And it doesn't require you to change, you're not really going. Church is just a thing you do.
Church is outside of the walls of the little building you go to.
Religion is where you get those instructions to go do things outside of the walls of the church, every Sunday.
So what is the solution here?
The solution we are ignoring. The solution is getting weaker and weaker. We are getting further and further away from the solution.
If you don't see that evil has reared its ugly head at this point, you may never see it.
If you just think that this is, I don't know.
Another day in America? That these things that you're seeing every day, are normal?
I don't know how to talk to that person. I really don't. Look at what is happening, in our society, in our world. In our schools.
To our children. It is absolutely evil.
And it's time we start calling it, by name.
