Glenn Beck Will Not Vote For Donald Trump Because He Doesn't Want To Answer To God

Glenn Beck spent a portion of his television program last night debating with audience members who are not very happy with his refusal to support Donald Trump, which Beck continues to insist he cannot do because voting for Trump carries eternal consequences.

To vote for either Trump or Hillary Clinton is to give his approval to genuine evil and "darkness," Beck said, and so unless God tells him otherwise, he cannot vote for Trump.

"We have to do what we feel the Lord would want us to do," Beck explained. "All I'm looking for now is to be seen in eyes of favor. Lord, I know who you are and I can't imagine standing in front of you and saying, 'But you don't understand, you weren't there.' He was there. And I don't want to say, 'I didn't have enough trust in you to hold the line on my principles' because those principles were right! Even if they were going to throw me in jail and crucify me upside down, I'm not wavering because I believe what I believe in and hopefully the Lord will recognize those who have trust in Him."

Five Right-Wing Predictions About Marriage Equality That Still Haven't Come True

Sunday marked the first anniversary of the Supreme Court’s landmark marriage equality decision, which, if Religious Right activists were to be believed, was to usher in a horrible tyranny that would lead to mass deaths and war.

Of course, the Right’s doomsday predictions about what would happen if same-sex marriage became legal nationwide were totally unfounded, and only a tiny contingent of conservativescame to a protest the ruling in Washington, D.C., this weekend.

While the conservative movement certainly hasn’t given up on the fight against LGBT rights and is thrilled by Donald Trump’spromise to appoint anti-LGBT judges who would oppose the marriage ruling, many activists have once again shown that they are more interested in stirring up fears about the LGBT community than in the facts.

Here are just five of the craziest predictions that conservative politicians and pundits made about Obergefell v. Hodges, all of which are yet to come true.

1) War’s A-Brewin’

Many “mainstream” Religious Right leaders said that if the Supreme Court were to strike down state bans on same-sex marriage, Americans should prepare for a revolution.

Family Research Council President Tony Perkins, for example, said there would be an anti-gay “revolution” that would “just break this nation apart” if marriage bans were overturned, warning that such a ruling would “literally split this nation in two and create such political and cultural turmoil that I’m not sure we could recover from it.”

Mat Staver and Matt Barber of the Religious Right legal group Liberty Counsel made similar statements, with Barber declaring that “revolution is at hand” and Staver claiming that there would be a “new American Revolution” resisting marriage equality. Former House GOP Leader Tom DeLay insisted that “all hell” was “going to break loose” if the court sided with LGBT activists on marriage.

“We’ve got to fight to our deaths to save this great country,” said Cliff Kincaid of the conservative group Accuracy In Media, while Vision America’s Rick Scarborough vowed that he was willing to “burn” in defiance of gay marriage, which he said would “unleash the spirit of hell on the nation.”

One year later, no anti-gay revolution has occurred and Rick Scarborough has not self-immolated.

2) Secession

Just before the ruling, WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah called on governors “to secede” from the union in order “to offer a refuge” for the “millions of Americans” who he believed would flee the country as a result of marriage equality. “The rewards could be great. I would certainly consider relocating. How about you?” he asked. “If not a state, are there any nations in the world interested in a pilgrimage by millions of Americans?”

Focus on the Family founder James Dobson warned that the U.S. could witness a second civil war over a same-sex marriage decision and televangelist Rick Joyner predicted that the court would “start an unraveling where our country fractures like it hasn’t since the Civil War.”

Self-proclaimed prophet Cindy Jacobs, for her part, said that she and other “prophets” had heard from God about a great “conservative revolt” and a “War between the States” that would take place as states threatened to secede to preserve “biblical marriage”.

Conservative activist Alan Keyes said the ruling amounted to “a just cause for war” and was “likely to produce the separation and dissolution of the United States,” while one author, former Reagan aide Douglas MacKinnon, called on a group of Southern states to form a new country called Reagan that would not tolerate gay rights.

We are still waiting for such a brave governor to threaten secession.

3) God’s Punishment

Gay marriage would lead to a divine reckoning, many conservative pundits predicted, possibly in the form of a global financial crash, a nuclear electromagnetic pulse attack or “a fireball from space.”

“It is just a question of how soon the wrath of God is going to come on this land,” televangelist Pat Robertson warned. Florida-based pastor Carl Gallups, now a staunch Donald Trump ally, maintained that “this ruling may prove to be the final death knell of divine judgment upon our once great nation.”

Radio host Rick Wiles predicted that “God will cut off America’s food supply and this nation will be hit with disease, pestilence, drought, natural calamities and a great shaking” and urged people to flee the country.

End Times author Jonathan Cahn even wondered if God would use Hurricane Joaquin to damage Washington, D.C., as a sign of his displeasure with the same-sex marriage decision.

The hurricane, in the end, did not hit D.C.

4) Pedophilia

Following the passage of the 2009 law that expanded hate crime protections to LGBT people, many right-wing politicians and analysts falsely claimed that the act legalized pedophilia. Of course, it did nothing of the sort and child abuse is still a crime.

Many of these same people claimed years later that the Obergefell ruling would also legalize pedophilia, which, obviously, it did not do.

Robertson said the ruling would turn pedophilia into a “constitutional right” and permit “relationships with children ” (along with “love affairs between men and animals”).

DeLay warned that the ruling would pave the way for a secret government plan to legalize “12 new perversions, things like bestiality, polygamy [and] having sex with little boys.” Ben Carson, then a GOP candidate for president, suggested that NAMBLA would benefit from the ruling.

5) Outlawing Religious Belief

Predictions about the government throwing pastors in jail, outlawing the Bible, and even murdering Christians came flooding in after the Obergefell decision.

Mike Huckabee said that America was witnessing “the criminalization of Christianity” and that any pastor who didn’t want to officiate a wedding for a same-sex couple would be liable to face criminal charges :

If the courts rule that people have a civil right not only to be a homosexual but a civil right to have a homosexual marriage, then a homosexual couple coming to a pastor who believes in biblical marriage who says ‘I can’t perform that wedding’ will now be breaking the law. It’s not just saying, ‘I’m sorry you have a preference.’ No, you will be breaking the law subject to civil for sure and possible criminal penalties for violating the law…. If you do practice biblical convictions and you carry them out and you do what you’ve been led by the spirit of God to do, your behavior will be criminal.

No pastor has been arrested for refusing to officiate a same-sex couple’s wedding, reading from the Bible or preaching against homosexuality, all things that conservatives predicted would happen.

Some right-wing pundits even thought that the ruling would lead to forced gay relationships and parents losing custody of their children.

Many pundits, however, have wrongly used the case of Kim Davis to claim that their fears were realized.

Davis, a Kentucky county clerk, was temporarily incarcerated by a federal judge when she refused to abide by court orders which found that she was unlawfully denying same-sex couples marriage licenses. Davis, who boasted that she was defying the Supreme Court decision and subsequent rulings because she was working under “ God’s authority ,” was released after deputy clerks in the county office agreed to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

Davis was not incarcerated because of her religious objections but because, in her role as a government employee, she clearly defied the rule of law. She was not attempting to exercise her religious freedom as a private citizen but was trying to impose her personal religious beliefs on the functions of government, and make all the people in her jurisdiction abide by her faith.

As Janet Porter warned in her anti-gay film, “Light Wins,” “our freedoms are on fire.”

'We Are Living The Milgrim Experiment': Glenn Beck Blames Obama For Nasty Facebook Comments

On his radio program today, Glenn Beck declared that "we are right now living the Milgrim Experiment" and, of course, it is all President Obama's fault.

Beck was referencing the famous series of social psychology experiments done at Yale University back in the 1960s, which found that many people were willing to inflict increasingly painful punishments upon a subject simply because they were ordered to do so by someone in authority.

Today, the comments being left on Facebook show that this mentality has overtaken our entire society, Beck said, and it can all be traced directly back to Obama.

"Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, they're all, in their own ways, hammering people who disagree with them," Beck stated. "So they are setting for an example for both the left and the right, it's okay to be vile, it's okay to be uncivil. How are we living the experiment? Have you read Facebook lately? Have you read the comments section lately?"

"I contend, if you read Facebook, if you read anything, you read any comments right now, we are living the Milgrim Experiment," he continued. "We are living in a time where people will say, 'It's okay you do that.' And people in authority — Barack Obama is the first one, he's the first president; if you remember, even George Bush treated Cindy Sheehan with respect, she didn't treat him with respect but he treated her with respect. Surrogates might have said things, but the president did not, the president did not. Barack Obama was the first to say, 'You're walking around with your little tea bags.' That was the beginning of the Milgrim Experiment. Somebody in authority was saying it's okay to bash them."

The Movers Behind The Anti-LGBT 'Religious Liberty' Movement

In the first few months of this year, for the second year in a row, more than 100 anti-LGBT bills have been introduced in state legislatures, many of them promoted under the banner of protecting religious liberty.  A new report by People For the American Way Foundation, “Who is Weaponizing Religious Liberty?,” explains that “it takes a right-wing village to turn a cherished American principle into a destructive culture-war weapon.”

The report makes clear that the wave of anti-equality legislation promoted in the name of religious liberty is not an outgrowth of local conflicts but the latest step in a long-term campaign by national Religious Right legal and political groups to resist legal equality for LGBT people. As Americans have come to know and embrace their LGBT family members and friends, harsh anti-gay rhetoric has become less effective, says the report, leading social conservatives to try to reclaim the moral and political high ground by reframing debates over marriage equality and nondiscrimination protections as questions of religious liberty.

These efforts are being promoted by “a network of national Religious Right organizations that oppose legal recognition for the rights of LGBT people,” notes the report, which profiles some of the leading organizations while noting that they “represent the tip of the iceberg of a much larger movement that is trying to eliminate legal access to abortion and roll back legal protections for LGBT people, couples, and families — and trying to do so in the name of religious liberty.”

The groups covered in the report include:

·         Family Research Council and FRC Action

·         Heritage Foundation and Heritage Action

·         National Organization for Marriage

·         Alliance Defending Freedom

·         Liberty Counsel

·         American Family Association

·         Becket Fund for Religious Liberty

·         American Principles Project

The report includes links to additional resources on the organizations behind the Right’s use of religious liberty as political strategy for resisting equality. 

Modern-Day MLK Glenn Beck Volunteers To Be Punched In The Face By Trump Supporters

Convinced that 2016 will see a repeat of the riots and assassinations of 1968 and that God has been preparing his audience for years for this moment to save America, Glenn Beck is now contemplating going to Cleveland for the Republican convention this summer, where he hopes to become this generation's Martin Luther King Jr. by allowing himself to be punched in the face by angry Donald Trump supporters.

Alarmed by longtime Trump ally Roger Stone's threat to disclose the hotel room numbers of any Republican delegates who try to "steal" the nomination from Trump at the convention, Beck declared on his radio program today that perhaps God has been preparing him and his audience to go to Cleveland and link arms around the hotels in order to protect the delegates by taking a beating.

"This may be what we have been preparing for," Beck stated. "This is maybe what I've been prepared for, this is maybe what I've been hearing, what I'm supposed to do and I haven't understood it ... I do believe that Martin Luther King was right; where there is good versus evil and it is side by side, Americans will always side with good." 

"This is about good versus evil," he said. "I'm wondering if we're supposed to go to Cleveland ourselves and I don't know yet what, ring those hotels, stand someplace arm in arm, shoulder to shoulder and be immovable and let them punch us in the face."

Glenn Beck Gets Embarrassingly Debunked By His Own Website

For years, Glenn Beck has been obsessed with George Soros, regularly portraying the liberal billionaire philanthropist as some sort of evil genius and puppet master who has been behind countless efforts to destroy America. So naturally, when right-wing media outlets began reporting that Soros-linked figures had donated money to a super PAC supporting John Kasich, Beck seized upon the news.

On his radio show last week, Beck declared that Soros was backing Kasich in an effort to foment a brokered Republican convention, all for the purpose of sowing chaos.

"I know this," Beck said, "Soros, like the imams over in Iran, like the people over in Europe that are, what is it, The Coming Insurrection people, like Occupy Wall Street, like Black Lives Matter, they all want one thing, and that is chaos."

On his television show that night, Beck even hauled out his trusty chalkboard covered with a drawing of an octopus to highlight "the tentacles of George Soros" that now reached all the way into the Kasich campaign:

But apparently nobody at Beck's website got the memo, because last night The Blaze published a piece totally debunking Beck's conspiracy theory:

Neither progressive billionaire George Soros — who has bankrolled numerous far-left initiatives and Democratic political campaigns — nor his company has spent money to support the campaign of John Kasich for president.

Still, numerous conservative news sites have pointed to campaign finance watchdog Center for Responsive Politics, which lists the Soros Fund Management company as a prominent supporter of the of Kasich super PAC New Day for America, with $200,000 in donations. In some cases, the news accounts presented Soros as backing Kasich to cause mayhem in the Republican presidential primary — to either draw votes from front-runner Donald Trump or Texas Sen. Ted Cruz.

However, the firm Soros Fund Management did not give money to the Kasich super PAC. Rather, a one-time top-ranking executive, Scott Bessent, made two separate $100,000 donations to New Day — one on Oct. 21 and second on Dec. 8, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.

Another close Soros associate, Stanley Druckenmiller, whom Forbes once referred to as “George Soros’s main man,” gave three separate contributions of $150,000 to the Kasich super PAC, for a total of $450,000. Druckenmiller heads the Duquesne Family Office hedge fund firm. Druckenmiller made his first donation to the Kasich super PAC on Aug. 10 and the other two in February.

...

Bessent was the chief investment officer for Soros Fund Management. A Soros Fund Management spokesman who did not provide his name told TheBlaze, said, “Scott Bessent doesn’t even work here any more, which is neither here nor there.” The spokesman angrily asserted that the firm itself did not contribute to the Kasich PAC.

David Barton: If You Tithe, God Will Bless You With A Car That Goes 200,000 Miles

On a recent episode of his "Foundation of Freedom" series, David Barton explained to Glenn Beck how, if Christians tithe properly, they will find themselves being rewarded by God with cars that don't break down as often and clothing that will last longer before wearing out.

"Everybody is supposed to pay their 10 percent to God," Barton stated. "And we don't pay that because God needs it, Deuteronomy says you're to pay the tithe, you do that to learn to be Me first. God says the reason you pay the tithe is so that you learn to put Me at the top of what you do."

"I love the example with Cain and Abel," he continued, "he said that Abel brought the first fruits of the flocks and God was pleased with that. It said that Cain, in the course of time, brought the crops to God and God wasn't pleased with what Cain did. So when you do it first thing off of the top, God can really bless that. And I've seen that. We both tithe, we know the benefits of that, suddenly your cars go 200,000 miles rather than 80,000 miles, your clothes don't wear out as fast. It's what the Bible says, [the Israelites] went for 40 years and their sandals never wore out."

Wayne LaPierre: 'We Gun Owners Are A Heck Of A Lot Smarter Than You'll Ever Be'

The NRA's Wayne LaPierre spoke at Liberty University yesterday, where he told the students gathered for convocation that American gun owners are smarter than everyone else and are perhaps some of the smartest people in all of human history.

"So many of those elites, they think they're better than us," he stated. "They somehow think they're more sophisticated. They think they're more intellectually evolved somehow than we are. Or they think they're just somehow plain smarter than we are. Well, I've got news for the elites who look down their noses at all of us and our rights: We gun owners are a heck of a lot smarter than you'll ever be. It's true."

"In all of history," he continued, "there's never been a group of citizens so engaged, so determined, so resolute and so unified in defending freedom, so politically savvy and individually prepared and responsible for protecting our families and our communities. Never have there been smarter, freer American citizens than America's one hundred million gun owners."

"Let me say that again," he emphasized, "in all of the world, some of the smartest citizens are American gun owners."

Glenn Beck: 'Superman And Batman Would Never Fight'

Though he has not seen the film yet, Glenn Beck is not a fan of the new "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" movie because Batman and Superman are heroes who would never fight each other.

"The reason why these morality plays [i.e, superhero movies] are winning right now at the box office is because they are morality plays," Beck said, "good winning over evil, the unity of the principles of America: truth, justice and the American way."

"When Batman starts to fight Superman and Captain America starts going against Iron Man, these things are going to fall apart," he warned. "They are taking 2016 values and superimposing them on 1940s values and it's going to destroy these franchises. They've got to stop."

People want to see movies in which good conquers evil, Beck explained, not movies in which the good guys are turned into bad guys.

"We have no heroes any more," he complained. "Why does Hollywood want to take our heroes and destroy them? They've already done all of the real heroes, they've destroyed those guys; now they're going to go and take on our Superman and our Batman. They're going to destroy it ... The people in Hollywood do not understand America at all. At all."

The reason Superman and Batman are fighting in this new film, Beck concluded, is in order to "reflect the turmoil that is happening here in our country, people fighting and the division between us."

'God Help Us All': Glenn Beck Says America Is Doomed And Obama Is A Communist Puppet

Glenn Beck was fired up today over the terrorist attack in Brussels, ranting on his radio program that if America elects Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton, this nation will be doomed.

"I can't believe this is my country," Beck said. "History will record, they will record us exactly the way every other civilization has gone and our great-grandchildren and our grandchildren will look back on this time — I hope I'm dead before my grandchildren say, 'What were you thinking? What were you doing? What did you do?'"

"They will erase us from history in the next few generations because they will be too ashamed of us," he continued. "Our children and our grandchildren are going to learn about the Constitution, they are going to learn about what freedom really is because they will have lost it. And when they learn what life was really like in America and we threw it away, God help us all. God help us all."

Eventually, Beck began ranting about an awkward exchange between President Obama and Raúl Castro in Cuba yesterday, which Beck insisted was Castro's way of signaling to the world that Obama is a communist puppet whom he can control.

"It was the emasculation of the president," Beck stated. "It was showing, 'I have control of him' ... He was showing, 'I control this man.'"

During the exchange, Beck said, Obama's "mask came off" and revealed that he is a Marxist and "a puppet of a communist dictator."

David Barton Says Toyota's Prius Commercial Is Feeding A 'Distaste For Authority'

David Barton invited Bishop Harry Jackson on to his "WallBuilders Live" radio program today to promote his "Operation Blue Shield" effort, which seeks to bring "citizens, governments, law enforcement and first responders ... together to reduce crime."

Prior to interviewing Jackson, Barton lamented that American culture is feeding a "distaste for authority," pointing to a commercial run by Toyota during the Super Bowl featuring a group of bank robbers trying to outrun the police in a Prius.

"The distaste for authority that we're feeding in a very cultural way," he said. "If you look even at the Prius commercials that are running right now, they're humorous commercials, they're creative, but it all starts with some guys trying to rob a bank and while they were trying to rob the bank, their car got towed and so they have to jack a Prius and now the cops haven't been able to catch them. And so commercial after commercial, you've got the cops chasing these four guys in a Prius and the guys inside are just on a vacation, having fun. It all started with them robbing a bank! Now how is that a good deal? That's, again, breaking laws, rejecting authority, and so we're sending the wrong message all the way around."

Yet Again, David Barton Falsely Claims The Average Welfare Family Receives $61,000 A Year In Benefits

On his radio program last week, Glenn Beck dedicated a segment to ripping Donald Trump as a man who simply doesn't care about the truth of anything that he says, asserting that Trump is rarely called out for his lies and when, he is, neither he nor his supporters really even care about his rampant dishonesty.

"The truth doesn't matter to him," Beck said. "The truth is completely irrelevant to Donald Trump."

At the time, we thought that pretty much the same thing could be said about Beck's good pal, David Barton, who also seems to have no qualms about repeating demonstrable falsehoods over and over again because he knows that his supporters will reflexively accept anything he says while ignoring all the criticism that his work receives.

And nothing better demonstrates this very point than the most recent episode of Barton's "Foundations of Freedom" series, in which he was joined by none other than Glenn Beck and where he repeated, for the fourth time, his false claim that families on welfare receive $61,000 a year in government benefits.

"Right now, if you're on welfare in America," Barton stated, "there are 80 anti-poverty programs in America. Those 80 anti-poverty programs, spread out over the poor, the average amount that goes through those poverty programs to those who are designated to be poor,  $61,000 a year. The poor in America, right now, make more that the starting salary of a teacher in 11 states, more than the starting salary of a secretary in 39 states. If you're in Hawaii, unless you're making a salary of over $61,000 a year, there is no reason for you to get off poverty."

As we have pointed out every time we have heard Barton make this assertion, this entirely misleading claim was first put forth by the Republicans on the Senate Budget Committee back in 2012 and was, as the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities explained, derived by relying on "a series of serious manipulations of the data that violate basic analytic standards and are used to produce a potentially inflammatory result."

But the simple fact that this claim is totally false is not going to stop Barton from endlessly repeating it ... nor will it stop Beck from gladly standing with him.

Glenn Beck: 'The Constitution Comes' And 'All Of A Sudden We Have Microwave Ovens'

On his radio program today, Glenn Beck reiterated his warning that people who don't vote for Ted Cruz will face eternal consequences because God gave us the Constitution ... which allowed us to create the microwave.

Once again echoing W. Cleon Skousen's book "The Five Thousand Year Leap," Beck argued that Cruz is the only presidential candidate who will defend the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, which he said are sacred documents given to us by God for the purpose of protecting our God-given rights for future generations so that America would be free to create things like microwaves and airplanes.

"Just like George Washington didn't have any idea that electricity would come and television would come and we would walk on the moon and we would free Germany and we would save the Jews in Europe," Beck said, "and that our country would restore and be the leader of putting Israel back on the map. He had no idea those things were coming. But it is because of that document God allowed those things to happen."

"For 5,000 years, we had a fireplace, we had a fire pit," he continued. "The Constitution comes, all of a sudden we have microwave ovens! Nobody thought of that?"

"Leonardo da Vinci couldn't figure out that the top of the wing needed to bend. Instead, he just kept making everything perfectly flat. But after the Constitution, after men are set free, after we start dedicating ourselves to God, all of a sudden we can just figure out that little curve will give us lift to lift the airplanes? Wow, that seems pretty simple, doesn't it?"

The White Horse Prophecy: Glenn Beck Tells Utah That God Has Chosen The Mormons To Save America By Electing Ted Cruz

Back in 1843, Joseph Smith, the founder of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, supposedly delivered a message known as "The White Horse Prophecy" that declared that one day, when the U.S. Constitution was hanging by a thread, the Mormon people would rise up and save this nation.

This is how Brigham Young reportedly explained it in 1854:

Will the Constitution be destroyed? No; it will be held inviolate by this people; and, as Joseph Smith said, “The time will come when the destiny of the nation will hang upon a single thread. At that critical juncture, this people will step forth and save it from the threatened destruction."

In 2010, the LDS church issued an official statement that "the so-called 'White Horse Prophecy' is based on accounts that have not been substantiated by historical research and is not embraced as Church doctrine," but that didn't stop Glenn Beck from repeatedly invoking it as he campaigned for Ted Cruz and Sen. Mike Lee in Utah over the weekend.

Beck spent all last week declaring that God has spent the last 10 years preparing and sanctifying his audience to rise up at this very moment and save the republic by electing Ted Cruz as president. But when he went to Utah, Beck made it unmistakably clear to his fellow Mormons that God is using them to save America because evangelical Christians "are not listening to their God," a reference to southern evangelical Republicans who have voted for Donald Trump.

When Beck spoke at a rally for Sen. Lee's re-election in Draper on Saturday, he explicitly invoked the language of the White Horse Prophecy.

"It's something that Utah needs to hear," he said. "The body of the Priesthood is known to stand up when the Constitution hangs by a thread. I am a convert to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in 2000. What attracted me was not only the truth of the message, but also the people like President [Harold] Lee and President [Ezra Taft] Benson, who knew exactly who we were, knew who we were as a country. Many times, what held me through was the prophecy that the Constitution will hang by a thread and this people would remember what our founders did. It is our responsibility to stand for the Constitution!"

Beck echoed that message while campaigning for Cruz in Provo, telling the audience that he had a "special message for the people of Utah."

"I believe the Book of Mormon," he said. "I believe it to be true. I believe every word of it ... That book spells out in great detail what things look like before the Lord comes back. And He gave us that book so we can protect freedom here. He also gave us that book so we would know what to do at the time. Now you either believe that or you don't. You either believe that to be true, it's not just a book; then let the Priesthood lead! Priesthood holders, stand up and take your staff! You are the guardian at the gate."

While speaking at another Cruz rally in Salt Lake City, Beck said that it was up to the Mormons to save this nation because "the evangelicals are not listening to their God."

"Let me testify to you now," he stated. "The Book of Mormon is a book that was given to us for this time in this land and it explains exactly what it's going to look like when trouble comes ... You know what time it is, the Priesthood is supposed to rise up and restore the Constitution. Now is that time!"

"Utah has an incredible opportunity," he continued. "So many Christians have been standing up, but all throughout the South, the evangelicals are not listening to their God. Let us raise a standard in Utah. Let us do this one thing perfectly right."

Glenn Beck: Failure To Elect Ted Cruz Will Leave Us Will Blood On Our Hands

Glenn Beck told his live television audience last night that it was up to them to warn everyone they can about the dangers of not electing Ted Cruz as president, saying that those who fail to do so will have blood on their hands.

Beck said he would be out on the campaign trail for Cruz again this weekend "because that's what I can do" and that others have to do whatever they can "because we are on the Titanic, it's going down"

"Knock on every single door," Beck told them. "They don't want to come? Fine. Don't waste time. The Titanic is going down. But you knock on every single door, 'Can I tell you about the truth? Can I tell you about the truth? Can I tell you about the truth, because here's what's coming.' They don't want to hear it, up to them."

Citing the biblical prophet Ezekiel, Beck said that "religious people" will be held eternally responsible for their failure to warn others that total disaster is rapidly approaching.

"The blood of the people who could have been saved," Beck stated, "now think of this, because we're talking about the rights of all mankind; if America goes down — this isn't hyperbole any more, this isn't like a famous Reagan speech that he gave — this is real. If we go away, where is freedom? So all of the freedom that will be lost, all of lives that will be lost because we refused to pay attention, [will be] on our hands."

Gordon Klingenschmitt Praises School Board For Standing Up To Evil, Sinful, Demonically Inspired Federal Judge

On a recent "Pray In Jesus Name" program, Religious Right activist and Colorado state Rep. Gordon Klingenschmitt praised members of a California school board for standing up to what he said was an evil and sinful judge who had ordered them to stop using public board meetings to proselytize on behalf of Christianity.

The Chino Valley Unified School board voted 3-2 earlier this month to appeal a court ruling from U.S. District Judge Jesus Berna ordering an end to the practice of "reciting prayers, Bible readings, and proselytizing at board meetings," and Klingenschmitt voiced his support for the board's effort to resist this demonically inspired ruling.

"Even this judge, whose first name is Jesus, hates Jesus," Klingenschmitt said. "So what is going on with this judge, who is he listening to? There is an invisible demonic spirit that is whispering to him, 'Abuse your power, judge. Turn the First Amendment upside down and ban religious expression with the power of the government sword.' And that's what this judge is doing and that sin is his voluntary cooperation with the demonic spirit that is influencing him."

Klingenschmitt said that he was grateful for the decision to appeal the ruling "because we need a holy judge to overturn this evil judge."

Glenn Beck's Audience 'Will Be Remembered In History As Saving The Republic'

Glenn Beck opened his radio program today by telling his audience that all of the predictions he has made over the last 10 years are now all coming to fruition and that is why God has been preparing this audience for this very moment to rise up and save this nation.

And while Beck has been making this same statement for most of the last two years, now he really means it because this summer is going to be 1968 all over again, when America will see riots and assassinations and Beck's audience will be America's only hope.

At one point, Beck actually hauled out his trusty chalkboard and listed a bunch of the "accurate" predictions that he has made over the last 10 years to illustrate just how right he has been all along.

"In 1999, I told you about Osama bin Laden," Beck said. "In 2004, I started warning about the housing collapse. All the way from 2004 to 2008, I was warning about the housing and banking collapse. In 2003, I started interviewing people in the GOP and said, 'You better be careful, they're going to come for you with pitchforks and torches, don't you understand what's happening, don't you understand what you're doing? This means the downfall of the GOP. In 2008, I said they're going to start admitting that they're Marxists and socialists. In 2010, the caliphate. In 2006, the Bubba Effect. In 2009, the pendulum swing and the rise of the radical right here in America. In 2010, I started telling you about top down, bottom up, inside out. In 2014, I started telling you that it was 1968, this summer would be 1968. Those are just some of them."

Despite this amazing track record, everyone continues to mock him, but Beck doesn't mind because he knows that this has all been part of God's plan.

"This is the time," he said. "And this is the time where we're going to build lifeboats. This is the time where we're going to be the group of people that will be remembered in history as saving the republic."

Pastor Who Said Gay Marriage Is An 'Attempted Gang Rape Of Our Culture' Endorses Ted Cruz

As we have noted several times before, people who hate gays sure do seem to love Ted Cruz, and to that ever-growing list we can now add Mark Creech of the Christian Action League of North Carolina, who endorsed Cruz last week:

We are witnessing possibly the most dangerous time in American history. It's not that our great country hasn't faced incredible challenges in the past, but today the enemies of our Republic strike at the heart of our national identity – the meaning of America. Such issues will determine the preservation of liberty for the generations to come.

Although the Christian Action League concedes there are many pressing considerations in choosing a President, none are more important than marriage and family, restoring a culture of life, and preserving our first right – the right to practice one's faith freely. No current candidate in the Democratic field demonstrates a proper commitment to any of these necessary supports for a healthy society. All the candidates in the GOP field have shown some commitment to these three, either with lip service or some demonstration of allegiance, but none has the long track record of their zealous defense and promotion as Senator Ted Cruz.

Creech is sort of right-wing activist who asserts that "hunger is rampant in India" because the people there have not embraced Christianity and that President Obama could be the Antichrist, so naturally he has some pretty strong feelings about gay people as well:

  • He has declared that homosexuality is "impure," "dirty," and "disgusting."
  • He said that those who identify as gay are insulting God: "What an insult to God to say that we are something other than what he really created us. We’re either born male or female and are meant to express our masculinity or femininity in a way consistent with God’s creation."
  • He warned that there is nothing loving about accepting gay relationships: "No one who is thoughtful can possibly believe that something as unnatural as the act of a man placing that part of his body which was designed to project life into that part of another man's body meant to expel death could possibly be a healthy lifestyle under any circumstances."
  • He proclaimed that homosexuality is worse than other sins because "the consequences of homosexual behavior can be considerably more grievous than some other sins. Homosexuality is unique in that it is especially abhorrent to God and constitutes a significantly perverse and wicked lifestyle that clearly shows that one is far removed from Him."
  • He has said that gay-friendly churches are a satanic "fifth column."
  • He warned that court decisions in favor of gay marriage are a sign of the End Times:  "Such court decisions are certainly a sign of the times – a sign that we are heading for an impending judgment. This matter burdens my heart greatly nearly every day, sometimes with tears."
  • He said that acceptance of homosexuality will lead to persecution of Christians: "These events of late prove, without question, that the normalization of homosexual behavior in the culture and the legalization of same-sex marriage will inevitably usher in a flood of religious persecutions for Christians who dare say homosexuality is a sin."
  • He stated that the push for gay marriage is an attempt to rape society: "No longer were their shameful sins simply tolerated by a permissive society, but it had gone much further than that. Now these people were an open, aggressive and insistent force, in a city where none dare interfere. Their behavior was not looked upon as criminal, but as constitutional. Yet as they pushed upon Lot's door to knock it down, their actions were nothing less than an attempted gang rape.Today, it is the same. I suggest the defying of marriage laws by gays and lesbians in California, New York, Illinois, New Mexico, and Oregon — the foisting of the issue of gay marriage on the country by judicial activists sympathetic with the gay agenda — is an attempted gang rape of our culture. It is an attempt to sodomize our society."

With views like these, Creech will fit right in among the radicals with which the Cruz campaign has aligned itself.

Glenn Beck Says John Kasich Is A 'Son Of A Bitch' Who Is Going To 'Possibly Destroy The Republic'

On Monday, Glenn Beck was positively giddy over his realization that everything he has done for the last decade has been orchestrated by God for the purpose of preparing his audience to save this nation by electing Ted Cruz as president.

God's plan for saving America, Beck explained, hinged upon Donald Trump winning the Republican primaries in Florida and Ohio and thereby driving both Marco Rubio and John Kasich out of the race, setting up a showdown between Cruz and Trump, at which point "Cruz turbos and the republic is saved."

Unfortunately for Beck, last night didn't quite turn out the way he had anticipated, with Kasich winning in his native Ohio and vowing to stay in the race until the Republican convention. So while Beck heaped praised upon Rubio for dropping out after losing to Trump in Florida, saying that he delivered a "landmark" concession speech that will go down in history, he declared that Kasich will conversely go down in history as the man who "possibly destroyed the republic."

After co-host Pat Gray mocked Kasich on the radio program today for being "delusional" for staying in the race when it is mathematically impossible for him to actually win enough delegates in the remaining primaries to secure the GOP nomination, Beck stated that "this guy is going to be remembered as a guy who possibly destroyed the republic."

"It will be his arrogance," Beck said, "he will go down in history as the guy who possibly destroyed the republic ... We're looking at a delusional guy."

"Excuse my language," Beck said later in the broadcast, "but you son of a bitch, the republic is at stake. This is not like a normal race. The republic is at stake!"

Glenn Beck And Jerry Boykin Say Electing Trump Or Clinton Would Be National Suicide

On Monday's television show, Glenn Beck aired an interview that he conducted with the Family Research Council's Jerry Boykin when the two men were in Ohio last weekend campaigning for Ted Cruz. During the discussion, the two agreed that the election of either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton would mean that America has reached rock bottom and decided to commit national suicide.

After Beck complained that Christians are being mocked for believing, as he does, that Ted Cruz has been raised up by God for this moment, he and Boykin worried that America has not yet reached the point where it is willing to humble itself and ask God to save this nation.

"I'm a recovering alcoholic," Beck said. "There was a time when I hit my bottom and I had to decide whether I was going to repeat my mother's life, who committed suicide, or if I was going to live. My mother's bottom was suicide. Some people don't have a bottom. If we vote for Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump, is our bottom suicide?"

"If we go down that road," Boykin replied, "I don't think the republic will survive."
