Glenn Beck: Slaughtered Christian Martyrs Are Brave, Not Jenner

By    |   Tuesday, 09 Jun 2015 06:30 PM

Calling Caitlyn Jenner brave for publicly coming out as transgender is "redefining" what the word truly means, according to radio and TV commentator Glenn Beck.

"Now is the time that we have to start saying bull crap — no, that’s not true," Beck says on subscription-only Blaze TV, and in a post on his website.

"I won’t say that. I won’t remain quiet anymore."

In his commentary, Beck rails at those who consider Jenner's decision brave while Christians continue to be martyred in the Middle East for their beliefs.

"Look at the people being slaughtered in the Middle East because they refuse to abandon their Christianity," Beck says."Why are they forgotten, while a sensationalistic story like Caitlyn Jenner [is]dominating the news?"

Beck writes that as he penned his commentary and read it on-air Monday, "there was one line that I wrote that it felt so right to me, and that is the way we’re taking Caitlyn Jenner and now redefining bravery and saying he’s brave or she’s brave," he writes.

"And then we dismiss the father who emailed me, who said 'my children in Erbil – I was told by ISIS that I had to tell them that my children would become Muslim or they would kill my children'," Beck writes.

"He went to the priest and said what do I do? The priest said 'God understands, save your children.' So, that’s what the priest told him. He goes back. ISIS comes in. He can’t even speak because all of his children say Jesus Christ. And they kill his children."

"That’s bravery," Beck writes.

"We’re to this point to where I think we have to say if we can’t say these things, our citizenship becomes an indictment, not an honor or a privilege," he adds. "… No, I won’t go down any farther with you."

On his earlier radio program, Beck also decried the focus being placed on Jenner, the Blaze reports.

"Every story like that drowns out the voices of those who have been beheaded,"he told listeners. "Their voices cry out from the blood-soaked sands of Libya. We have become a people that, quite frankly, are absurd."
