Judging by two standing ovations, no one wanted their money back from Glenn Beck’s speech Saturday night at the Dahle Fine Arts Center. Beck spoke to nearly a full house of “malice towards none” and an abiding faith in the Christian commandment to love one another.
The event was an effort to help local entities raise funds: Dahle Fine Arts Endowment, Oneida Stake Academy Foundation and Worm Creek Opera House.
This part-time resident of “a town at the base of an Idaho mountain” thanked locals for allowing his family to be among them without making a spectacle of his presence, then emotionally read what he wrote about the things he has learned being there.

“My life here is merging with the life of my grandfather,” he said, referring to a changing outlook on life he is developing. “I don’t apologize for what I have said (publicly in the past) because I said what I believe, I said what I know is true – but perhaps I said it with not enough love, not enough compassion.”
