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 Becks 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.
Todays 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.

Alveda King inspired me to take a closer look at Malcom X.
He was unlikely to become a conservative or even a capitalist but he was waking up to the muslim brotherhood and islam. He said that the muslim brotherhood created zombies and that he had spent 14 years of his life as a zombie. It cost him his life.
As a Christian who HAS prayed with Glenn Beck, I found his sentiments more in line with traditional Christianity than 90% of the whack jobs I hear at the “feel-good” churches.
Yes, I got that impression from the first couple hours I spent with Mormon missionaries discussing theology, too. 10-11 hours later (over several visits) we finally got to the nitty gritty. Make no mistake the LDS church is taking the seeker sensitive approach as well.
I think you meant simplify, not simply. :-)
Patricia King regularly gets messages from the Holy Spirit.
So is Glenn a born-again Christian (salvation by God alone Grace alone Faith alone), or is he a Mormon? Two very different things.
The MSM will play this as a KKK rally and it was too hot for the sheets and hoods.
LOL and he’s got black people up there like slaves on the auction block.
The MSM is far too predictable.
I am watching this on C-Span and I got on FreeRepublic to participate with others who are also watching but after reading the comments on this post I can honestly say that the crappola being written about this gathering makes me want to scream.
This gathering is simply about trying to unify and encourage those of us who feel alone in our desire to restore our country to principles set forth by our Founding Fathers and in the Bill of Rights and Constitution.
I am out here in the netherland...surrounded by those who are dumber than dirt about how this country is being destroyed. How Christians such as myself are being forced back into the catacombs....and here is a huge crowd of people who have gathered to simply say....we are Americans...we are all colors...we are also Christians as well as other religions...Christians who want to be able to shout our pride in our God and in our Christ....it is simply a means to pull us together...and, yet, these people posting miss the whole point by yakking about things that continue to divide us.
Can’t we...just once....forget our individual thoughts in order to join together in this fight against those who want to take away our freedoms? Can’t we just say we are Americans...Christian Americans....a kalaidescope of American colors...and we are damned proud of it!!
I have read that also. Very interesting stuff. Never see that in the MSM.
Been praying for everyone’s safety, especially for the speakers and Glenn.
I just switched to CNN to see if they were showing Alveda King. They weren’t but they did show an overhead shot of a massive crowd.
I hope Sarah and MLK’s niece wear one also.
I wouldn't have a problem with this event if the foundation was a return to common-sense concepts that informed the foundation of the country (i.e. a political thing). So much of what he's saying is good, and I agree that people are hungry for it. But Beck and others are rooting this faith in God, and saying this is His working.
Who is God though? We don't get to define Him ourselves; God's already done that in His word, the Bible.
If Mormonism and orthodox Christianity don't have the same God (and according to every Mormon I've spoken with and every Mormon teaching I've ever read, we don't), then commitment to God isn't unifying in anything but a superficial and ultimately idolatrous way. Frankly, that'd be true for any religion which isn't orthodox Christianity; Mormonism has the spotlight because of Beck, that's all.
Whatever cultural and political encouragement Beck is fostering will ultimately be poisoned by the ecumenism with which he's delivering it.
Unfortunately, there are posters among us who do do NOT want conservatives to unify around these great themes. They pretend to be conservatives, but they really work for and in behalf of liberals and the liberal agenda.
I get where you are coming from-
But keep in mind Mark 9:40
“For he that is not against us is on our part.”
Pray in Christs name for Strong conviction and The Holy Spirit to be there Today.
God is working and he’s using Glenn today.
Great Spiritual Things are happening right now- Its on so get the prayer warrior Armor on and hold on tight. Christ is moving through the spirit right now.
