Glenn Beck goes global, Meets With Catholic Clergy.
February 19, 2012 by Billy Hallowell

The political discourse has been dominated by the religious liberty debate that continues to intensify between the Catholic Church and the Obama administration – an issue that Glenn Beck has tackled quite frequently on his radio and television programs. This weekend, The Blaze has confirmed that Beck flew from Miami to Rome, where he had meetings with prominent Catholic Church leaders. In addition to holding discussions with them about important religious freedom issues, Beck also met with individuals from various countries to discuss the creation of an international Tea Party movement.

During his dialogue with Cardinals, Monsignors, Archbishops and other Catholic leaders, the popular host pledged support for the church, while also discussing ways in which members of various faith communities can join in solidarity against secular attacks against religion. As evidenced through his work, Beck has long encouraged people of all faiths to stand together — distinct and separate in their beliefs — but united in their support of everyone to practice those ideals without persecution.

Additionally, Beck met with Tea Party leaders from Rome, Serbia, Milan, Germany, Austria, and London, among other localities, to begin discussing an international coalition that is being headed by FreedomWorks. Reflecting the ideals held by peace and freedom proponents in America, the persons involved discussed their goals for an integrated global effort to champion Tea Party ideals.

These meetings with Catholic leaders are the latest in a series of discussions that Beck has had with numerous faith leaders, including evangelical pastors and rabbis, among others. His efforts to connect with these theologically diverse individuals reflect his desire to bring adherents from various faith traditions together to support religious liberty here in America and abroad.

“We are not battling for the next election, we’re battling for the very soul of each of us and of our nation.”

Religious liberty is becoming an issue of great importance across the globe, as Christians, Jews, Muslims and other faith traditions grapple with an increasingly hostile clash with the atheist and “freethinking” community. Additionally, governmental policies are, in many ways, beginning to mirror secularist ideals that tend, in the views of many religious peoples and institutions, to threaten spiritual expression

The examples are limitless. Earlier this month, England’s high court found prayer before local council meetings to be unlawful, and last week Baroness Sayeeda Warsi, a Muslim who is also a British Cabinet member, maintained that Europe is being threatened by militant secularism. Considering New York City churches’ battle for the right to rent public school buildings, incessant attacks on Ten Commandment displays, and secularists’ never-ending efforts to force churches to violate their consciences, Beck’s coalition is coming at an appropriate time.

That guy is full of himself. All of a sudden he mentions the Muslims. A week ago he was trashin' em.

I hope he reverts to Catholicism and stops being a pawn of the "restoring courage for is rael".
This guy is a joke.

Frankly, I'm happy to see a prominent ally in this fight.  The more, the merrier. We need all the help we can get.

My Catholic-o-meter is ticking very loudly. International Tea Party sound like NWO from a new angle. The Dynstic Famlies who own the Earth, are always wont to give us two solutions, both of which end with their ultimate purpose. So, I don't trust him.

I hope her reverts as well, however beware of Beck he is not as conservative as he says he is. He is rather a very clever opportunist at least this has been the message from conservatives that I respect who have worked with him in the past.

I wonder if he brought a copy of his catchy song, "Pedophile Priest" to play when he met with Catholic leaders?  Huh.

He's a big fan of freemasonry so I'm sure he had a lot in common with a number of bishops and Cardinals.
