Glenn Beck: CNN Thinks Every Church in America Promotes ‘White Christian Nationalism’

“Can we compile some evidence that everything CNN is contending here is wrong? Gee, after nine pages of footnotes, yeah we can do that,” Beck said before mockingly reading portions of the article.

A story posted to CNN.com that says “imposter Christianity” is a threat to democracy in America is making the rounds in conservative circles, and Glenn Beck took the opportunity to try to dispel some of the claims during the open of Thursday’s show.

“Can we compile some evidence that everything CNN is contending here is wrong? Gee, after nine pages of footnotes, yeah we can do that,” Beck said before mockingly reading portions of the article.

Beck mostly took issue with the quotes from Kristin Kobes Du Mez, writer of The New York Times bestseller Jesus And John Wayne: How White Evangelicals Corrupted a Faith and Fractured a Nation who said “white Christian nationalist beliefs have infiltrated the religious mainstream so thoroughly that virtually any conservative Christian pastor who tries to challenge its ideology risks their career. These ideas are so widespread that any individual pastor or Christian leader who tries to turn the tide and say, ‘Let’s look again at Jesus and scripture,’ are going to be tossed aside.”

“My gosh, I’m terrified now,” Beck mockingly said. He then added “CNN is clearly not talking about some minority offshoot here. They’re insinuating that every church in America, especially if you have a white pastor, is infected.”

He reiterated the line “virtually any conservative Christian pastor” from the article.

“I think that pretty much encapsulates almost all Christian churches.”

Beck later went on to say CNN attempted to skirt two of the biggest talking points in political circles.

“You know what they’re really talking about here, right? Homosexuality and abortion. The doctrine on these issues is clear. And no true Christian pastor will tell you that either is not a sin.”

Beck also described Thursday’s segment of “part one” of his rebuttal and alluded to continuing the takedown during the first hour of Friday’s program.

SiriusXM radio host Howard Stern told “Morning Joe’s” Joe Scarborough and Willie Geist in an extensive interview that MSNBC is the network for him regarding cable news consumption. 

Stern stated that he’s a major fan of “Morning Joe” and went the extra mile to say that he and co-host Joe Scarborough share the same political idealogy.

“I watch you guys every morning,” Stern said (h/t Mediaite). “I really enjoy the show. Oddly, I agree politically with almost everything Joe says. I don’t think there’s much difference there.”

The radio host thanked MSNBC for providing him with what he loves: 24/7 news. Additionally, Stern offered a shoutout to network host Symone Sanders and stated he’s no fan of Dateline repeats.

“By the way, I want to give a shoutout to MSNBC,” Stern added. “Thank God you don’t play the old Datelines anymore on the weekends. I like news. I watch this channel exclusively for news. I tune out on the weekend. 

“It’s like all news stuff. I’m watching old Datelines. I like when you guys are onI like news 24/7, and now I find I’m getting it. I get Symone on the weekend. Big fan of hers. Symone coming on strong. What can I tell you? I know the whole lineup.”

Charges against John DePetro have been dismissed as the radio host faced a trespassing charge related to an incident over the summer during a Monday court hearing.

DePetro was arrested in mid-August outside a home on Staples Avenue in Warwick.

Police searched the house several months earlier as part of an investigation into the disappearance of Charlotte Lester, who has been missing for six months.

“I respect our justice system and respect law enforcement, specifically the Warwick PD,” DePetro said on Twitter. “The search for Charlotte Lester continues as I resume efforts searching for answers into her disappearance and holding Mark Perkins accountable for his actions against myself and Ladybug.”

The man who lives there, Mark Perkins, was also arrested the following day after he allegedly charged at DePetro with a lawnmower while DePetro was live-streaming. 

Unlike DePetro, who had his charges dismissed, Perkins still faces an assault charge, according to court records.

Champlin Broadcasting Conservative Talk The Eagle 96.9 KQOB Enid/Oklahoma City and 1640 KZLS Enid will look a little different for its listeners as the station has rebranded.

Rather than calling itself The Eagle 96.9, the radio station will now be known as Freedom 96.9 (h/t Radio Insight). KZLS started simulcasting on KQOB at the beginning of this year after the 96.9 signal was leased to Citadel and Cumulus Media for nineteen years. 

The station features a syndicated lineup, including Hugh Hewitt, Brian Kilmeade, Dan Bongino, Mike Gallagher, Joe Pags, and Bill O’Reilly. Furthermore, with the rebrand possibly comes a new addition.

Freedom 96.9 is teasing the addition of Dana Loesch to the lineup as well to enhance the rebrand further as the station begins a new chapter as it provides news/talk to the residents.
