Glenn Beck announces he has plans to take on Glee, America’s favorite musical program, with a singing and dancing television show of his own.
Speaking at the Faith & Freedom Coalition conference in Washington, D.C. Friday, former Fox News firebrand Glenn Beck said he was mesmerized by Glee‘s production quality, but was devastated that the program promoted “no values”.
He said that his show will champion Christian values and appeal to everyone, even liberals.
During the conference, Glenn Beck said he and his wife were shocked by the subjects discussed on Glee.
“It’s horrifying some of the things that they’re teaching high schoolers,” the radio host said.
“But it’s brilliantly done. It’s produced, brilliantly. Its music, brilliant. Its acting, brilliant. Its cinematography, brilliant. All of it!”

The problem, however, is that viewers prefer “high school kids dancing in lingerie” more than “shows that talk about God, faith, and family”.
“Everybody is sleeping with everybody else. There’s no values. It’s all self-gratification. It’s a nightmare,” he said of the Fox hit.
The self-hating Gleek says he’s been working with artists and musicians to “push back” against shows that display teens having casual sex, cursing, and other things he deems debaucherous.
“Why are we just giving the culture over to those who seek to promote filth? Why are we just complaining about it? How about we do something about it,” he said in a statement last week.
The show will be hosted on GBTV, Glenn Beck’s HD video network.
“We are working with a rapper – I can’t say who yet – but my audience and his audience will say, <<What?>>” Glenn Beck said to Buzzfeed.
“We jokingly call this our Oedipus project because the left will be making out with me… and they’ll have no idea.”
Mitt Romney, the presumptive Republican candidate in this year’s US presidential election, has rejected the legitimacy of same-sex marriage telling graduates at Liberty University, a Christian college in Lynchburg, Virginia, that marriage is “a relationship between one man and one woman”.
Mitt Romney told the Liberty University commencement that marriage is an “enduring” institution that’s reserved for one man and one woman.
The crowd cheered his comments, made days after Democratic President Barack Obama embraced same-sex marriage.
Mitt Romney also said that culture – “what you believe, how you live, what you value – it matters”.
“Marriage is a relationship between one man and one woman,” he said.

Mitt Romney, a Mormon by religion, was given a standing ovation.
Barack Obama, fighting for re-election as president in November, announced his support for gay marriage this week.
It was seen as a politically risky move, especially in the South, where one in three swing voters strongly opposes allowing gays and lesbians to wed.
Virginia is regarded as a key battleground in November.
Addressing the graduation ceremony at Liberty University, Mitt Romney avoided talking about his own faith but stressed the importance of Christian values in American society.
He has so far struggled to gain support from evangelical Christians in his campaign for the Republican ticket.
“There is no greater force for good in the nation than Christian conscience in action,” he told the audience.
While Mitt Romney opposes gay marriage, he has said that same-sex couples should have some rights, including the ability to adopt children.
