Live Blog From Glenn Beck's Restoring Honor Rally in DC

Refresh every few minutes by pressing F5 on your keyboard.

The crowd is rowdy with occasional chants of “USA, USA” or “Glenn, Glenn”

A crowd of possibly 300,000 is expected at the Mall on Washington, DC for Glenn Beck’s Restoring Honor rally in front of the Lincoln Memorial. We plan to cover it “live” from his Facebook streaming audio.

Lots of surprise guests will be showing up for this blend of religion and patriotism. Last night at the Divine Destiny rally at the Kennedy Center, evangelicals Twila Paris, Dave Roever, and Chuck Norris all made appearances.

Today’s rally will feature veterans who will be introduced by Sarah Palin, Alveda King (niece of Martin Luther King and pro-life advocate), and David Barton.

Ralph Reed on CSPAN is brilliant.

I heard something about Fox saying it’s Beck’s thing, and they have nothing to do with it. I think they aren’t covering it to avoid all the BS from the left.

IMHO Fox does not want to be (wrongly) accused of sponsoring Glenn’s event....in addition to all the other bashing they get from the losers in MSM.

C-SPAN will be covering Glenn Beck’s “Restoring Honor” rally at the Lincoln Memorial this Saturday, with Sarah Palin among those expected to attend. Coverage begins 10amET.

Beck was on the Mall again today (above) taking another walk-through in preparation for Saturday.

Beck wearing a bullet proof vest under his shirt, probably a good move.

Watching on C-Span. I bet this will be their highest rated program ever.

I just love it because it will make the libs’ heads explode.

Am sure this makes them uncomfortable and whether televised or not; they are targets from Left and who will determinedly make manure from hay out of this.

Fleeting screen shot showed part of the crowd, HUGE.

Over 750,000, based on 200,000 + at the reflecting pool, 250,000 + in the first lot, and 250,000 + in second lot and 100,000 + coming in from the Washington monument... there will be more it's not even 10:30 yet.

I"m sure that this crowd will be praying for the six hundred fat al followers that show up this afternoon.{but the drive byes will try to convince you that both rallys were equal size.

Watch it on the web, it is much better, I have CSpan on TV volume on zero, and on my laptop. The laptop is better when I compare them.

I understand, but this is still big news ie >100,000, maybe 300k people in DC. Fair and balanced reporting would report it.

All of this is very unChristian. It does not emphasize the exclusivity of CHrist but presents a generic God. Therefore Glenn shouldn’t be calling it Christian and Christians should not be making like we’re all worshipping the same God, because we aren’t.

I would be perfectly happy for them to call this a political rally of religious people but let’s not call it Christian or minimize these differences in theology. I could not pray with Glenn Beck, as a Christian.

If you don’t like it, maybe you can make it to the Sharpton rally. The Jackson Rally is in Detroit if it’s closer.

Otherwise you don’t need to comment or even click on the thread.

That was rather harsh. She posted a reasonable criticism of what he has said. I didn't realize we had to agree 100% with Glenn in order to post here..

I find it rather curious that one would view this event and be motivated to log onto a message board and proclaim to the world that he/she “could not pray with Glenn Beck.”

Bizarre.

CNN (don’t watch the cable channel - only checked in
for coverage) is coverning the Al (the racist) Sharpton’s
event in D.C.
Isn’t that special?

She is posting her opinion as a Christian. I understand her point of view. I don't necessarily agree with it, I don't even consider myself a "Christian", but I see no need to tell her off like he did.

those who are worried about the truth might do that.

Yes, I agree. At least you didn’t try to tell me I have no right to express my opinion on the FREERepublic message board. You are free to think my behavior bizarre, but it is essentially the same as everyone else’s.

Apparently he got some message from God that this should be not just a political rally (as he originally intended). Wow. And here I thought God spoke through the Scriptures.

Honestly this whole thing breaks my heart. I really REALLY like Glenn. He is incredibly talented. I love his sense of humor. I find him entertaining and usually informative. He was really onto something with forging ahead and exposing the left despite persecution. His announcement about his eye problems made me cry. I love the guy. I don’t think it is wise for him to make light of our theological differences. For me, the differences are a matter of life and death in eternity. I cannot make light of them like this. I can work with him politically, but there’s a fine and important line between being political and making one’s political agenda primarily about your faith.

Certainly one’s faith informs their political stance. Absolutely. That’s as it should be. But that doesn’t mean we can say in honesty that we are “all God’s children.” Maybe Glenn can say that, but I am upset by all the professing evangelicals that think this is just fine. I am as concerned as LDS people would be if their family member left or was talking about leaving the LDS church.

Extrabiblical revelation or mysticism (God speaking directly to people) is a mark of a cult, and is why you end up with people having all sorts of strange ideas in the name of God. It is unfortunately very popular in all religions including among evangelical Christians who should know better.

Glenn gave some estimates that ended up being something close to or over a half million.

Lots of concern trolls around today.

If they had anyy courage they would come right out and say what they think instead of this “I really like Glenn...but” crap.

Probably lifelong republicans....but.

cripplecreek you have known me here for a long time. I have seen you on many animal rights wacko threads I used to participate in. I just haven’t been here for a long time because if you express your concerns as an evangelical conservative Christian you immediately get flamed.
