After reading from a Bible at a Ted Cruz rally on Monday, conservative radio host Glenn Beck told the crowd that they should have the freedom to call transgender women "dudes."
At an event in Indianapolis, Beck praised Cruz for being "immovable" from his belief in the Bible and the Constitution.
"He knows who he is, he knows who he serves, and that's God and currently the people of Texas," Beck explained, adding that Cruz's father had taught him "about freedom, about the Constitution and about how it all connects with God."
"I don't know who we are if this is not an American thing, to be able to beseech the almighty creator," the Mormon radio host continued, "the one who gave us these rights in the first place and through divine providence established this country, I don't know who we are."
Noting that he was going to "make it easier" for the media "to make fun of me," Beck opened a Bible and seemed to take a shot at front-runner Donald Trump by reading from the book of 2 Timothy:
For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof
"It couldn't be more clear," Beck opined. "And yet, some in America are missing it. We have lost common sense."
"When we can't say, 'You know what dude, you still got the thingamajig downstairs? Then you shouldn't go into the ladies restroom.' When we can't say that, we've lost our minds!"
