Glenn Beck asks where pope’s spine was in address to Congress: He ‘could have ended abortion in America yesterday’

Glenn Beck wants to know where the pope’s spine went when he spoke to Congress about abortion Thursday.

The conservative radio host believes Pope Francis missed a chance to end abortion in America when he addressed Congress on Thursday.

While the pope did say “The Golden Rule also reminds us of our responsibility to protect and defend human life at every stage of its development,” Beck said Friday that he believes the pope should have gone further.

“The Pope could have ended abortion in America yesterday,” Beck said. “He could have stood in the well of the Senate and said, “I’m sorry. I know this is not my place. I’m not here to talk to you about politics. I’m here to talk to you about life, and you have the opportunity right now to end abortion.”

Beck spoke about how Mother Teresa took the opportunity to do just that when she was at a prayer breakfast with Bill Clinton in 1994 and called abortion “the greatest destroyer of peace.”

“Yesterday, the Pope should have gotten up as the vicar of Christ and say, ‘Christ demands that we take care of the most innocent among us, the most helpless among us.’ This isn’t asking him to do something that is not in his trait, is not in his purview,” Beck said. “This is not asking him to do anything political. This is asking him to be the Vicar of Christ. That’s what he was introduced as. That’s his title. Missed opportunity.”
