Conservative radio host Glenn Beck just made a very controversial confession that could land him in prison.
During a September 9 interview after the Rally Against the Iran Deal, Beck said that he would risk his freedom to bring Christian refugees from Syria into this country, even if it would put him in jail.
“Stop asking for permission! Stop thinking we need permission … I asked if my audience could raise $10 million before Christmas to bring the Christians in from Syria,” Beck said, according to Conservative Tribune. “We will vet them ourselves. I have former CIA people that are going over, and they’re vetting everybody right now. We can save more people by Christmas than Oscar Schindler saved, okay?”
Beck went on to say that the legal ramifications do not phase him at all.
“The State Department won’t let them in? Really?” he lamented. “Because I know some bridges over a river in Texas (where) that doesn’t seem to matter.”
Beck has named his initiative the Nazarene Fund, and he is hoping to bring in $10 million by Christmas.
“I refuse to be the church that stood and said, ‘Sing louder when the trains with Jews go by.’ Our churches have gone dead inside,” Beck concluded. “I will so gladly grace a jail for the justice cause of saving people’s lives. I don’t need your permission at all to do the right thing! That’s who we need to be now! Forget about Washington! You don’t need permission to do the right thing.”
