At 60 years old, Rob Schneider has had a long, eventful career in Hollywood.
However, a lot has changed since his early days — including his recent conversion to Catholicism after “going through life slugging along and ignoring God.”
Telling Glenn Beck the story of this major life change, Schneider quotes his late friend and comedian Norm Macdonald, “We are a small fraction of the universe, so if there is such a thing as compassion and love and empathy, then it must be endemic to this whole thing that we exist in.”
“That little voice of Jesus Christ was always coming back to me, even though I was going away from him,” he adds.
Schneider explains that as evil became more obvious in the world, his faith became harder to ignore.
“If there is this really organized evil in the world, and I don’t think it’s at all more powerful, but I do think it’s here to challenge us individually, as a family, as a community, and I think also as you and I, you know, have come to really understand now — as a nation,” he tells Glenn.
Glenn mentions Christ’s forgiveness, which some people use against believers who reject transgenderism or men in women’s sports.
“So they’re trying to say that ‘see, you haven’t really changed because you’re not forgiving all of those things as well,’” Glenn says.
Like Glenn, Schneider disagrees with this idea.
“Christ doesn’t want us to just stand down and accept evil and forgive evil and let it perpetuate. Christ wants us to stand up against it,” Schneider says.
Not only do we have to stand up against evil in general, but even more so when it comes to children.
“We cannot stand down, when you know, especially the most vulnerable members of our society are now under attack,” Schneider explains, adding that those on the side of mutilating children “use our good will against us, which is inherently evil.”
