'We're Being Set Up': Glenn Beck Warns His Audience To Prepare For The Time When He Is Murdered In The Night

Glenn Beck closed out his radio program yesterday with a 10-minute monologue warning his audience that everything that is happening in Baltimore and Ferguson and elsewhere is all a giant set-up, designed to create instability so that the federal government can take control of police departments all over the nation ... but nobody will listen to him.

"We’re being set up, guys. We are absolutely being set up," Beck said. "And I don’t know — this is what I pray every night: 'I don’t know how to do this, Lord. I don’t know what you want. I don’t know — I don’t know what you want.' I can’t wake up anyone. Oh, if I had the voice of an angel. I can’t wake anybody else up. They’ve smeared me. I’ve helped them smear me. I don’t have any credibility. Nobody is listening. I can tell you what’s coming. I’ve told you every step of the way. I know what’s coming next."

Linking a recent statement from Al Sharprton to an intentional misrepresentation of President Obama's 2008 statement about creating a civilian security force, Beck warned that the federal government is arming local police departments with military equipment in preparation for taking them over while "grassroots" agitators are being brought in to create civil unrest in major cities for the purpose of providing an excuse for the government to do just that.

"This is the biggest show ever," he warned. "That’s all that’s happening right now. This is a show. We’re watching a script and a play play out in front of us. None of this stuff is real. Those riots in Baltimore. That wasn’t real ... At some point, there will be a straw that breaks the camel’s back, and it will set the whole country on fire. And what happens? We will cry out for police help. The police will be overwhelmed. The DOJ will say, 'We’re going to take over policing, we’ll coordinate it from here.' And you’re done. It’s lights out, republic."

"That’s what’s coming," Beck said. "That’s what’s coming":

Amazingly, Beck wasn't done, as he then went on to implore his audience to prepare for the day when Beck and people like him are murdered in the night in order to silence their voices.

"If you look back at history, what happens to people who have voices and can cobble together people and be a leader?" he asked. "If you go back to what happened with the Armenian genocide, what is the first thing the Turks did? What is the first thing the Nazis did? You have a Night of Long Knives. The Armenian genocide. Any of the Armenians that could lead, any mayor, any writer, any person that was a hero in war, in one day, in each city, they would kill about 1,000 people. They'd just slaughter them. And they were all the leaders of the community. Anyone that people would rally around and follow. They were killed, day one. They just disappear, or they’re killed." 

"There are 10 million people that listen to this show. They cannot kill 10 million people in one night. You were born for a reason, and you’re listening to this show for a reason," Beck stated. "Prepare for a time when voices like mine or others are no longer heard and yours is the only voice."

Seemingly surprised by what he just spent the last 10 minutes saying, Beck finally fell silent before declaring "I can’t believe I just said all of that."

Rios: Christians Will Be Vilified, Like Pamela Geller, If SCOTUS Legalizes Gay Marriage

The American Family Association's director of governmental affairs, Sandy Rios, was a guest on the AFA's "Today's Issues" radio program this morning where she warned that if the Supreme Court strikes down state bans on gay marriage, Christians who preach against homosexuality will be treated as provocateurs, not unlike anti-Islam activist Pamela Geller, who organized the event in Texas last week at which two Islamic terrorists were killed.

"Pam's event has been called provocative, what she was doing in soliciting cartoons being drawn was called provocative and I supposed, you know, you could say it is," Rios said. "I would say that if the Supreme Court legalizes gay marriage, so much of what we say and write at AFR will be provocative in the same way. We will be saying things to incite, to anger, to provoke — at least from their viewpoint — because, no, it's the law, it's legal, it's okay. You can't say something against what's been made legal and this is where we're going to get into some really rough terrain, I think":

God Helped Ben Carson Ace His College Chemistry Final By Giving Him All The Answers In A Dream

Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson was among the featured speakers at the official National Day of Prayer gathering in Washington, D.C. this morning where he told the story about the time that God helped him ace his college chemistry final by providing him with all of the answers in a dream.

As Carson explained it, his goal of becoming a doctor was nearly derailed in his first semester at Yale University when he was failing his chemistry class to such an extent that he would not have been able to pass even if managed to get an A on the final exam. Fortunately for him, this particular professor had a policy that anyone who was failing the class could receive double credit on the final and so Carson asked God for a miracle before committing himself to study for the exam the night before.

But instead of studying, Carson fell asleep and had a dream in which he was alone in an auditorium as some "nebulous figure" wrote out chemistry problems on the blackboard.

"When I went to take the test the next morning, it was like 'The Twilight Zone,'" Carson said. "I opened that book and I recognized the first problem as one of the ones I dreamed about. And the next, and the next, and the next, and I aced the exam and got a good mark in chemistry. It worked out okay and I promised the Lord he would never have to do that for me again":

Dobson: Gay Marriage Will Be 'The Death Knell Of Religious Liberty In America'

Today is the annual National Day of Prayer, which is overseen by Shirley Dobson, wife of Religious Right icon James Dobson. So naturally, James was given 10 minutes this morning to warn attendees at the official event in Washington, D.C. of the dire implications for this nation should the Supreme Court legalize gay marriage.

Echoing his belief that such a ruling could lead to civil war, Dobson warned that legalizing gay marriage would undermine and weaken the family and tear this nation apart because "it will divide us further and the implications of it are breathtaking."

Among the implications about which Dobson is particularly worried is the fact that parents will supposedly no longer be able to teach their children that homosexuality is a sin because public schools will be teaching the opposite.

"It has implications for the school. Textbooks are going to have to be re-written and re-illustrated to comply with the law," he warned. "It reaches every corner, every dimension of society. We are talking about the death knell of religious liberty in America":

Steve King: Legalizing Gay Marriage 'Throws This Country Into An Endless Trauma'

Rep. Steve King appeared on Glenn Beck's radio program yesterday, where he warned that a Supreme Court ruling striking down state bans on gay marriage "throws this country into an endless trauma."

Likening any such ruling to Roe v Wade, the Iowa Republican declared that "the public will not accept a huge decision of the Supreme Court that's not a decision of the people" before confusingly comparing it to the Dred Scott decision by seemingly suggesting that it would take a constitutional amendment and decades of legislation to overturn any decision legalizing gay marriage.

"Dred Scott back in 1857, the court thought that they were going to solve the slavery question by telling Congress that they couldn't free the slaves and telling the county that slaves could never be citizens," King said. "They made that decision and that helped move us towards a civil war ... Then in 1866, there was a civil rights act; that wasn't enough to get the job done. There was the Thirteenth Amendment that freed the slaves. The Fourteenth Amendment that guaranteed them full citizenship and then we still were a hundred years before we got the Civil Rights Act."

"If all of that to eliminate slavery, do they really think that they can do what they're going to do to marriage, with one decision of the Supreme Court and society is going to accept that?" he asked. "Society is in for a long battle":

Bryan Fischer Demands Conservative Commentator Be Fired For Being Gay

Earlier this week, it was reported that Guy Benson, the political editor at the conservative website Townhall.com,  reveals in his forthcoming book that he is gay.

Unsurprisingly, the American Family Association's Bryan Fischer has wasted no time in demanding that Benson now be fired from his position at Townhall.com:

Benson is young, smart, and articulate and often appears on Fox News as a pundit on all manner of political issues. This makes him particularly dangerous to the conservative cause.

Now I don’t know Mr. Benson, and he certainly seems like a particularly nice and friendly individual. But this is not about his personality. It’s about his politics.

Townhall, by the way, is owned by Salem Media Group, which describes its mission as “targeting audiences interested in Christian and family-themed content and conservative values.” To my knowledge, Salem has yet to explain how paying an openly homosexual activist to be the political editor of its main public policy publication is consistent with this mission.

If Salem leadership is to be at all true to its own mission statement, Benson must be replaced. His values on homosexuality are not Christian, family-themed, or conservative.

It remains to be seen whether Fischer's demand will be heeded, but he does have a track record of managing to force gay conservatives out of their jobs.

Arkansas Pastor Rips Gov. Hutchinson's 'Total Lack Of Parenting' For Raising Son Who Supports Gay Marriage

Last month, Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson announced that he would not sign a state "religious freedom" bill unless it was changed so that it more closely mirrored the federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act. Among the reasons that Hutchinson cited for opposing the bill in its original form was that even his own son has signed a petition asking him to veto it.

On the "WallBuilders Live" radio program today, Arkansas pastor Tim Brooks ripped Hutchinson's "total lack of parenting" for raising up a son who would support marriage equality.

"Our governor came on our local TV stations and said, 'My son has signed a petition for me to repeal this and I, on the other hand feel this way about it,'" Brooks fumed. "And he said on TV, 'This is clearly a generational issue where my son and his generation feel this way, my generation, however, feels this way'; clearly making this a generational issue that Arkansas has got to come to terms with and deal with."

"And Rick, I was appalled," Brooks continued. "I didn't know biblical mandates were generational. I thought there is another case for a total lack of parenting. At somewhere in this line, our governor did not transfer his values into his son's life. When he said, 'I think this way but my son thinks another way,' clearly he didn't parent in morality":

Trey Ware: America Is Suffering Riots, Terrorist Attacks, And Gay Marriage Because The 'Nation Left God'

On yesterday's "Hagee Hotline," host Matthew Hagee had a discussion with local San Antonio conservative radio host Trey Ware about the attack on an anti-Islam event in Texas carried out by two Islamic radicals over the weekend. Ware declared that the attack, along with the unrest in Baltimore and the push for marriage equality, are all the result of America having abandoned God.

After saying that blaming organizers of the anti-Islam event for the attack is "blaming the victim, like what happens in certain rape cases," Ware said that this is all part of an ever-worsening "spiritual battle."

"There is no doubt that America, when we decided, as a nation I'm talking about, years ago to say, 'No, God, we don't want you in the schools, we don't want you anywhere,' and churches even said we don't want you in the churches, then God said 'okay,'" Ware said. "And we are now reaping what we have sown in America society. These riots that we have seen, the discussion about homosexual marriage that you and I are going to talk about today, and even the situation where terrorists are in our country, a lot of this is because we as a nation left God":

Bachmann: The Clinton Foundation Is 'An International Money Laundering Ring'

Steve Malzberg interviewed Michele Bachmann on his Newsmax radio program yesterday about the supposed Clinton Foundation "scandal," which the former congresswoman addressed with her typical nuance and perspicacity.

"This Clinton Foundation," she said, "is in effect an international money laundering ring to benefit the Clintons personally" so that they can "live the life of potentates."

"What's the best way to continue that lifestyle?" Bachmann asked, rhetorically. "Start an international foundation and get people to give you big money. But they use poor people as human shields for their pompous lifestyle":

Glenn Beck Wants Ted Cruz's 'Velvet Hand' In Control When America Descends Into Martial Law

On his radio broadcast this morning, Glenn Beck continued his incoherent attempt to explain away his comment from yesterday that he was not sure that Ted Cruz would be able to govern if he were elected president, claiming now that what he was saying is that only President Ted Cruz will be able to save America when it inevitably descends into martial law sometime in the next eight years.

"The world is about to change," Beck stated. "Mark my words, this next presidency, we will see martial law ... In this next presidency, we will see martial law, either regionally or across the entire country, I don't know. But you will see martial law because there's going to be a breakdown of the system."

"Now there is two ways that this goes," he continued. "Either the system breaks down and we go into martial law, the government closes the banks, we do what we did in the Great Depression and there are riots on the street and so we have to have martial law and it's a complete crackdown and you never get your freedoms back. Or we're better people and we do what Americans have always done and that is unite in times of crisis. I don't which way it's going to go."

Saying that it is important to have a "constitutionalist" in power when this societal breakdown comes, Beck said, "I want Ted Cruz because I believe we are going to face tough times and we may go into martial law and I want somebody that will take that and with a velvet hand, put uprisings down if we have them and then let the hand off and restore our freedoms again":

Glenn Beck Incoherently Tries To Explain Away His 'Ted Cruz Can't Govern' Statement

On his radio program yesterday, Glenn Beck made a rather surprising statement when he declared that he was not sure that Ted Cruz could govern effectively if he were to be elected president. Beck made the remark during a segment in which he was just randomly assessing whether any of the potential GOP candidates could govern, seemingly based on some random criteria that only Beck understood. (He also declared that Mike Huckabee would also be unable to govern if elected president.)

It was pretty obvious that even Beck did not understand whatever it was he was trying to say at the time, and predictably, he is now lashing out at everyone else for supposedly taking his "Ted Cruz can't govern" statement out of context, complaining about it on his website:

As we were discussing the challenges for Cruz and others, I mentioned that Cruz might have a tough time putting together a coalition because of all the work the media and politicians on left and right have done vilifying him. The way I tried to poorly summarize that was to say that “I’m not sure he could govern.”

Of course, the media has jumped all over that as if Vladimir Putin just came out as anti-Russia. But, context is key here. The specific example we used to discuss what we meant by “coalitions” and to “govern” was George W. Bush’s infamous decision in the midst of bailout mania as he “abandoned free market principles to save the free market system.” Bush quite clearly built a broad coalition to govern in that instance, but I don’t consider that something to aspire to.

This is also why we talked about how Jeb Bush, Chris Christie and John Mccain would be able to “govern” even though I am not a fan of any of them. Stu caught how ridiculous the way the Cruz comment sounded immediately: “you can’t think he’s the best candidate if you don’t think he can govern.”

This is obviously true. Executing the nations “policy, actions, and affairs” as the dictionary definition reads is something I consider Ted Cruz to be quite capable of. Avoiding George W. Bush type “coalitions” is precisely why I like him.

He also complained about it on his Facebook page:

So, the media as always made this into a really big deal without context.

My question to these nitwits is this: how could I give full throated support to Ted and then not think he could govern?

I couldn't, unless

A: I am a psycho
B: I have changed my mind
C: you missed the context

The answer is C. Context matters.

I don't believe that things are going to stay the same. I believe the events that are coming are going to be so dramatic that the Republic will literally be hanging in the balance.

The country will do one of two things:

a: tear itself apart
b: come together as we always do in a crisis.

I wish I could bank on B, but I no longer know my country.

If we choose A, we will go into some sort of martial law and it will be imperative that we have a president that knows and respects the constitution and the people and will give the power back as Lincoln did.

If we choose B, then a man with vision and clear principles can and will govern.

This next president will indeed chart the course for the future and it will result in freedom unlike we have ever had due to hi tech and the constitution.

Or it will end in global an oligarchy and Russian style totalitarianism due to hi tech and the lack of a constitution.

I feel totally comfortable with Ted Cruz as the man to lead us through troubled times.

Least of all because of his father who has seen this movie before in Cuba and has raised his son for times such as this.

Please help me fight the anti ted spin and lies. If you see this story please help correct it in the comment sections and in chain emails.

Unsurprisingly, Beck's defense of himself make no sense. In the clip that we posted, Beck says that Marco Rubio, Scott Walker, Rand Paul, and Jeb Bush all "could govern" while Huckabee and Cruz could not. Beck has publicly been a champion of Rubio, Walker, and Paul and has not been at all shy about voicing his deep dislike for Bush. 

If his standard for what qualifies a candidate as being able to "govern" is George W. Bush, whom Beck is now specifically citing as the sort of president that he doesn't want to see, then why are Rubio, Paul, and Walker on his list? And why is Huckabee not on that list, given that Beck thinks that Huckabee is a liar and "a very dangerous man"?

Beck's explanation is utterly incoherent, especially since his citation of George W. Bush as an example of bad governing is not what he said during the segment yesterday. Immediately following the end of the video we clipped yesterday, Beck and co-host Stu Burguiere had this exchange:

Burguiere: We can all look back now and it feels different in hindsight, but at the time, no one was more vilified than George W. Bush, who ran the country for eight years ... I mean, 'Bush is a terrorist' were sold in mainstream t-shirt stores in the mall.

Beck: And he couldn't govern at the end, he couldn't govern at the end and why he could govern; he couldn't govern at the beginning and he couldn't govern in the end. It was 9/11 that brought us all together.

Burguiere: Eh, there might be something to that, but towards the end he was governing the way that he was building coalitions towards the ends for things like, you know, removing capitalism to save it. I mean, that's the stuff he got broad consensus on.

Beck: Yes. That's the reason why Jeb Bush could govern.

It was not Beck who was initially arguing that George W. Bush was the negative standard for governing, since he explicitly asserted that Bush couldn't govern and it was Burguiere who was challenging Beck's assertion. On top of that, Beck then went on to say that Chris Christie and Rick Perry both "could govern" which is equally confusing if he was supposedly citing Bush's poor governing as the standard against which he was judging the current crop of candidates considering that Beck likes Perry and vehemently dislikes Christie.

The problem here is not that Beck's statement is being "taken out if context" but simply that there is no coherent explanation for why Beck thinks that Paul, Rubio, Walker, Bush, Perry, and Christie all "could govern" while Huckabee and Cruz could not.

And that is because Beck literally had no idea what he was talking about when he made this statement in the first place.

Glenn Beck On President Ted Cruz: 'I'm Not Sure That He Could Govern'

For someone who is constantly talking about how much he supposedly hates politics, it seems as if just about every episode of Glenn Beck's radio program over the last few months has featured an extended discussion about the 2016 election and the various candidates who will be running for the White House.

Today was no exception, as Beck again offered up his thoughts on whether various Republican presidential hopefuls actually have any chance of winning the election and, if so, if they possess any capability to govern if they do. The entire discussion got a bid derailed when it came to Mike Huckabee, with Beck saying that he doesn't believe that Huckabee could win or govern effectively if elected.

Co-host Stu Burguiere wondered just how Beck was making that determination, given that Huckabee actually did govern the state of Arkansas for more than 10 years, to which Beck responded that Huckabee simply does not possess the skills necessary to guide this country when "we are looking at unbelievable times ahead of us."

Surprisingly, Beck said that he believes that Sen. Ted Cruz would also be unable to govern if he became president.

"I'm not sure he could get the coalition together," Beck said of Cruz. "He'll be a bulldog and he'll stand for principles, but I'm not sure that he could govern." When Burguiere said that the same thing was said about Ronald Reagan, Beck replied that "Reagan had charm":

Gohmert: Failure To Stop Iran Deal Will Be 'The Downfall Of Israel And The United States'

Rep. Louie Gohmert was the guest on today's "WallBuilders Live" radio broadcast, where he warned that if the Senate does not stop President Obama's deal with Iran, it will be the end for America.

If leaders in the Senate "continue to be wimps" and refuse to stop the Iran deal, he warned, then "that will be written up as the downfall of Israel and the United States."

"I think Israel is going to come through, by the grace of God," Gohmert said, "but if we are this stupid in helping our enemy come after us, then we would be, in the eyes of history, deserving of what we get":

Later, David Barton chimed in to declare that support for the nation of Israel is the most important issue of the 2016 election because nothing else will matter if God stops blessing America.

"If you believe in the Bible, if you think the Bible is true, then you have to take is seriously when God says, 'Whoever blesses Israel, I'll bless, whoever curses Israel, I'll curse,'" he said. "If God actually means what He says and, of course, He says He does, then that's got to be a number-one issue in the next election because I don't care how good you are on the economy, I don't care how good you are on education, I don't care how good you are on defense, if you're bad on Israel, we're not going to be a blessed nation":

Glenn Beck Cannot Get His Audience To Save 'Little Boy'

For months, Glenn Beck has been hyping the faith film "Little Boy," repeatedly telling everyone in his audience to go and see it:

Family movies have a new gold standard.

Little boy!

I just watched it with my son. Grand slam! This is the movie of the highest Walt Disney Magic. The man not the company.

It is pure gold and yet even a rarer find. Perfect story telling.

Great story, full of hope, great message, God centered but non believers will love this too. It is beautiful in the way aviator was beautiful on film. The acting is A+. The casting is wonderful.

Jakob Salvati Aka "little boy" jumps off the screen will capture your heart and never let go.

This is the way movies should be made.

Don't go out to support this movie because it has the spirit we beg for and NEVER SEE, go and see this because it is a great movie that you will never forget.

Grab your spouse, your kids, go on a date, go alone or bring a friend and their family just see this film.

I believe in miracles, because my son and I just witnessed one. It's name is little boy.

When the movie finally came out two weeks ago, movie critics did not share Beck's love for the film, as it wound up with a mere 17 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes, which Beck naturally felt was some sort of conspiracy to tank to film.

In an effort to salvage the movie, Beck featured one of its producers on both his television program and radio show last week, even going so far as to beg his audience to go and see it over the weekend, repeatedly likening it to the works of Frank Capra and Norman Rockwell:

Please go see this weekend “Little Boy”. You will not be disappointed. I warn you, it’s Frank Capra. So if you didn’t like Mr. Smith Goes to Washington. If you didn’t like, you know, It’s a Wonderful Life ... You know, if you don’t like Norman Rockwell, you’re not going to like this. But if you have that heart for America of what it really can be, you’re going to love this movie ... Go see this movie. Please, take your family. Take your friends. Take your friend’s family. Don’t even ask the parents. Just disappear the children for a couple of hours. And go see “Little Boy”. You will love it! Truly love it. Thank you so much.

All of Beck's efforts to hype the film do not appear to have worked, as the weekend gross dropped by more than 71 percent from the week before as the film took in less than $800,000:

Barber: 'Revolution Is At Hand' If SCOTUS Legalizes Gay Marriage

Last month, a few radical anti-gay activists held a three-hour press conference prior to oral arguments at the Supreme Court on the issue of marriage equality. Entitled "Crimes against Nature and the Constitution: Cultural Marxism and America's Moral Collapse," the event featured Cliff Kincaid, Peter LaBarbera, Alan Keyes, and Matt Barber, who added his own voice to those threatening revolution if the Supreme Court strikes down anti-gay marriage bans.

"Same-sex marriage and the free exercise of religion, particularly biblical Christianity, cannot coexist in harmony," Barber warned, saying that Christians are already being "forced to call evil good and good evil."

Reading from the Religious Right pledge to defy any Supreme Court ruling legalizing gay marriage, Barber warned that such a ruling will "bring about an inevitable collision with religious freedom and conscience rights. The precedent established will leave no room for any limitation on what can constitute such a redefined notion of marriage or human sexuality. We cannot and will not allow this to occur on our watch."

"We were hearing a lot of talk about revolution," he stated, "well, revolution is at hand":

Beck: 'I'm Entering Now The Time Of My Calling'

Glenn Beck closed out his radio program today by asking his audience to pray for him because every catastrophic thing that he has been warning about for the last several years is now coming true and "I'm entering now the time of my calling" and this is the "time when giants are made."

"I would beg for your prayers," he said. "I'm entering now the time of my calling, what I have to do as a man. I don't know what to do, I just know it's coming and I beg you for your prayers. I beg you for your prayers because I will pray for you and you please pray for me, because this is the time. This comes every 70 years, there is a time when giants are made. And I don't know if they'll ever remember any of our names. What I know is at some point, I am going to be standing in front of God himself and I demand of myself that he says 'job well done.'"

Starnes: There Is A War On Christianity And Christians Are The Face Of This Generation's Civil Rights Movement

Fox News commentator Todd Starnes spoke at Germantown Baptist Church in Memphis, Tennessee, recently, where he declared that that Christianity is under attack in America and so the fight for religious liberty will be "the civil rights issue of our generation."

"I believe there is a war on religious liberty in the United States of America," he stated. "And this war is not targeting people of the Muslim faith, it's not targeting people of the Jewish faith or the Hindu faith or the Buddhist faith. This war on religious liberty is targeting people of the Christian faith."

Starnes said that he recently watched the movie "Selma" and that it drove home for him the realization that  conservative Christians today are the face of the modern day civil rights movement.

"These are not just words," Starnes proclaimed. "The civil rights movement was not about just words, it was about action. And it was also about knowing that sometimes there is pain and there is suffering for doing the right thing":

Joyner: SCOTUS Gay Marriage Ruling Could Bring About The Mark Of The Beast

Rick Joyner sent out an email to members of his Oak Initiative today, warning that a Supreme Court ruling in favor of marriage equality would be a "dress rehearsal" for the Mark of the Beast.

"Few events in history have so remarkably fit the biblical scenario of this mark as the potential U.S. Supreme Court decision on same-sex marriage," he declared. "As bizarre as this may sound, this is an uncanny parallel to the biblical prophecy."

The “abomination of desolation” that was prophesied by Daniel, Jesus, and the first century apostles could have been translated “the abomination that desolates.” Because homosexuality is referred to as an abomination in Scripture, and its impact on Western culture is so quickly and profoundly desolating the moral fabric of Western civilization, it is to be expected that many will start to consider this “the abomination that desolates.”

Who could have dreamed just two decades ago that we would have major cities celebrating “Days of Decadence” with all manner of perversions being performed and flaunted openly in our streets? Who would have thought that such a moral and religious nation could fall so quickly to the ultimate national depravity spoken of in Isaiah 5—calling what God calls “good,” “evil,” and what God calls “evil,” “good,” while the dishonorable are honored and the honorable are dishonored? Is that not precisely what has happened to America in just the last generation?

The meltdown of morality in our military could be happening even faster. Just a few years ago, the U.S. military was such a bastion of morality and integrity that adultery was considered grounds for dismissal because one’s vows had been broken. “Don’t ask, don’t tell” was the handwriting on the wall that a devastating change was coming. But who could have foreseen the pace of the desolation of our military since homosexuality was openly allowed in the ranks? It moved quickly from everyone having to accept it, to everyone having to celebrate it if you expected any further promotions, to now being forced out if you do not celebrate it.

Christians are now openly discriminated against, if not persecuted, in the U.S. military. Not only are some of the best and brightest leaving the military, they are no longer choosing it as a possible career.

The same is taking place throughout government services on all levels, as well as corporations, education, and the media, as was once the case for a long time in arts and entertainment. Now, with a single Supreme Court decision it could be that Christians, Muslims, and Jews that honor their books as the word of God will not be able to “buy, sell, or trade” in America without the constant threat of losing your business, or your position and livelihood, because of an offended homosexual.

Even if this is not “the mark of the beast,” it will be for those who are now losing what they, in some cases, have given their lives to build, because they would not compromise their religious convictions in order to buy, sell, or trade. If the Supreme Court decision falls the way it is expected to, we can be sure that very soon every Christian in America will have to make a similar choice between obeying the Word of God or this beast.

Glenn Beck Predicts Massive Anti-Christian Persecution If SCOTUS Legalizes Gay Marriage

After interviewing Aaron and Melissa Klein, the owners of an Oregon bakery who are is facing fines for discriminating against a gay couple seeking a wedding cake, on his radio program this morning, Glenn Beck predicted if the Supreme Court legalizes gay marriage nationwide, the government will start seizing church property and the persecution of Christians will become so intense that church attendance will drop by 50 percent in the next five years "because the stigma of going to church will be too much."

"Mark my words," Beck said, "if gay marriage goes through the Supreme Court and gay marriage becomes fine and they can put teeth in it so now they can go after churches, like the president's lawyer says, 50 percent of our churches will fall away.  Meaning, within five years, 50 percent of the congregants will fall away from their church because they won't be able to take the persecution."

"Mark my words," he continued, "within five years, 50 percent of the people that you sit next to in church will not be there. And not because [they'll say,] 'you know what, I think [gay marriage] fine,' [but] because they'll say, 'I can't do that, I'll lose my job, people are picketing my house, I just can't do that'":
