Glenn Beck Seeks To Become The Walt Disney Of Jesus Stories

Last week, Glenn Beck hosted an hour-long, commercial-free television special during which he discussed the myriad health problems he had faced in recent years, with the big takeaway being that he has decided to shift the focus of his company toward telling stories in an effort to change the culture.

To that end, Beck's company has announced that it is producing on a family program called "History House" and a scripted drama about Nikola Tesla and Thomas Edison, as well a film about a warrior Santa tasked with protecting Jesus Christ and another super-secret Spanish-language film called "The Revolutionary" that will also apparently be about Jesus.

In order to fund all of these projects, Beck is selling t-shirts and various pieces of artwork, as well as tickets to a "Keys to the Kingdom" event where, for $5000, attendees will get to spend an entire day at Beck's studio where they will have an opportunity to look behind the scenes at all of the projects that Beck has in the works.

Beck spent the last segment of his radio broadcast promoting these fundraising efforts along with Ben McPherson, whom Beck has hired to bring all of his visions to life, and the two explained that the fundamental purpose behind every project they do is to turn Beck and his The Blaze network into the Walt Disney of Jesus stories.

"I'm modeling everything on Disney," Beck said, explaining that his network was built in order to have a platform from which to spread his vision and stories, all of which are going to be about Jesus in one way or another. "We are driven by telling the story of Christ in every way we possibly can."

"It shouldn't be overt," McPherson added, "but it should always point to him in some way."

"You will always see in everything that we do, there will always be something that you go 'oh my gosh, look at that, I wonder if they knew [that was a reference to Jesus]?'" Beck said. "Yes. Yes we did. Yes we did."

Daubenmire: Christians Can Never Compromise On Allowing Gays To 'Come Out Of The Closet'

On his "News With Views" commentary today, "Coach" Dave Daubenmire made the case that conservative Christians can never compromise one iota when it comes to homosexuality, which he said should be a criminal offense.

As Daubenmire explained, once Christians compromised on God's standard of "no homosexuality [and] sodomy is a crime" by agreeing to allow gay people to "come out of the closet and be recognized," it became impossible to stop gay marriage.

"The church is rot with compromise," Daubenmire said. "Values we used to stand for we now compromise because why? We think maybe God was a little bit crazy back in those old days when he made some of those rules ... Compromise isn't a good thing. How do we know that? Because the Lord himself said, 'I change not. I'm the same yesterday, today, and forever.' He is a solid rock. He doesn't compromise. And neither should we on values that matter. Compromise is deadly, folks."

Just to clarify the point that Daubenmire is making here, he is saying that Christians can never compromise on God's rules, even the Old Testament ones that might seem "a little bit crazy" ... like Leviticus 20:

If a man has sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They are to be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads.

  • Janet Porter's "Heartbeat Bill" has been resurrected in the Ohio legislature after passing out of a House committee today on a party line vote.
  • Laurie Roth asserts that "Obama and his progressive army hates Christians and Jews – remember that. As a communist-Islamic, Obama views us all as infidels and goes after us by attacking our historical and moral high ground, attacking our freedom of speech and rights in general."
  • Michele Bachmann says that President Obama's immigration action is designed to turn millions of "illiterate" immigrants into Democratic voters.
  • Glenn Beck continues to be very profound: "Small minds cannot comprehend big spirits. To be great, you must be willing to be mocked, hated and misunderstood."
  • Finally, speaking of Beck, he warns that by taking executive action on immigration, President Obama will officially become be a dictator. But we thought Obama already became a dictator when Obamacare wasn't defunded. Or maybe it was during this year's State of the Union address. Obama sure has officially become a dictator quite a few times already.

Beck: The AP 'Just Raped Bill Cosby' By Asking About The Sexual Assault Allegations

Last night, the Associated Press released an interview that one of its reporters recently conducted with Bill Cosby in which the comedian refused to comment on the multiple allegations of sexual assault that have been leveled against him, after which he asked that any footage of him refusing to comment be cut from the interview.

Glenn Beck discussed to topic on his radio broadcast today and lashed out at the media, saying that "journalism is the most dishonorable, dishonest, callous, cynical, mean, stupid, stupid people and industry I have ever seen" and fuming that Cosby's reputation is being ruined because he is being unfairly vilified in the court of public opinion.

This is, of course, particularly ironic coming from someone like Beck, who is currently being sued for having spent several days in 2013 publicly accusing one of the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing of being an Al Qaeda terrorist responsible for that very bombing.

Cosby himself admitted during the exchange in question that "we didn't say that up-front [that questions regarding the allegations were off limits] because we thought that AP had the integrity to not ask" and the AP also clarified that it "had made no agreement to avoid questions about the allegations or to withhold publishing any of his comments at any time."

Despite being totally wrong about the very issue that served as the foundation of his entire rant, Beck nevertheless blasted the AP for asking Cosby about the allegations and then releasing the footage of him refusing to comment, saying that by doing so, "you've just raped Bill Cosby."

"You want to talk about rape? That's media rape, right there," Beck said. "You said you would not do that. Since when does your 'no' mean 'yes'? Do you know the definition of 'no,' sir? You've just raped Bill Cosby. You said you wouldn't do it. You just did it and then you blamed it on him. My gosh, maybe we should have a lesson on rape":

Glenn Beck Is Always Two Years Ahead Of Everyone Else

All of Glenn Beck's programming yesterday was dedicated to the message "I Choose Hope" because, as he explained on his television program last night, very bad things are coming in the next two years and so he and his audience need to "prepare our hearts" in order to be ready to save this nation when things fall apart.

"I know I'm ahead of the parade on this," Beck said, "and I'm asking you to go with me because I usually am, hopefully, two years ahead in this case of bad things happening. And I always look like an idiot for about a two year period, but I'm telling you, bad things are coming and when they do [we have to be] spiritually ready to help people with they are surrounded by darkness and shadows":

  • Bryan Fischer likens being gay to rape.
  • Are we creating robots that will defy the word of God?
  • BarbWire's Gina Miller says that the reason Republicans won't impeach President Obama is because the Left will literally seek to burn America to the ground if they do.
  • Rep. Louie Gohmert thinks he is being quite clever.
  • Finally, thanks to ALIPAC's William Gheen, we learned some new things about ourselves today, like the fact that PFAW apparently supports "the racist mass murder of American citizens by illegal alien and drug importing Mexican gangs!"

'Ex-Gay' Activist Says Nobody Is Born Gay, They Are Just Born With A 'Sensitive Temperament'

"Ex-gay" activist Christopher Doyle was a guest on the American Family Association's "Today's Issues" radio broadcast this morning where he informed hosts Tim Wildmon and Ed Vitagliano that nobody is born gay but rather some people are simply born with a "sensitive temperament" that makes them think they are gay.

"There's no such thing as a gay gene or gay hormones or gay brain. Those studies have been debunked," Doyle said. "What the sensitive temperament does is it makes the client more vulnerable to experiencing these hurts and this lack of attachment and bonding growing up. And whenever they get to puberty, they start unconsciously sexualizing all those emotional need to the same sex."

Doyle, who works with the "ex-gay" group Voice of the Voiceless, then continued to lay out his theory with an even more confusing explanation about how young boys who do not know other boys while growing up then become sexually attracted to boys instead of girls when they hit puberty.

"It's really the psyche's way of saying, 'Hey, I want to know the same sex and I want to get to know them so therefore I'm sexualizing this emotional need because of that psychological drive," he said. "But in actuality, if you look underneath the surface, what you see in these individuals is they have a desperate longing to have emotional intimacy with the same sex and that why they're sexually attracted. It's not really attraction, it's really an emotional longing to have that relationship with a man and that's what's really going on there:"

Beck: Obama's Immigration Action And Ferguson Grand Jury Decision Will Lead To A Race War

Glenn Beck opened his television program last night with a monologue in which he warned that if President Obama takes executive action on immigration in the same week that a grand jury decision regarding the possible indictment of Ferguson, Missouri, police officer Darren Wilson in the killing of Michael Brown is expected, it will lead to an all-out race war in America and the rise of a "strong man" dictator.

Beck has been warning that Obama is trying to foment a race war for well over a year now, and last night he asserted that the only possible reason why Obama would take a controversial executive action at such a time as this is because he wants the nation to be torn apart along racial lines.

A lack of an indictment in the Brown killing will incite the Left, Beck warned, while Obama's executive order will incite the Right ... and when that happens, all hell will break loose.

"When you have everybody fighting and you have race involved and people are scared, isn't this usually when a strong man steps in and says, 'I can fix it'?" Beck said. "Please pray for our president. Please pray for the republic. And so it begins. They mocked 'preppers' and now as the unrest becomes more of a reality, the advice being given this week, on the eve of potential violence, is prepare":
