Glenn Beck- Inspiring Commencement Speech At Liberty University (Video)
The Daily Beck ^ | May 15, 2010 | Glenn Beck

Posted on 05/16/2010 2:23:23 PM PDT by amabokcarab

Thats Dr. Glenn Beck —Thanks to Liberty University

Saturday morning in Lynchburg, Virginia, Liberty University conveyed an honorary doctorate in humanities and scientists on Mormon conservative media heavyweight Glenn Beck.

Breaking into his trademark tears, Beck told the stadium of 8,000 Liberty University grads and 20,000 friends and family members, "as a man who was never able to go to college—I went for one semester but I couldnt afford any more than that---I am humbled and honored."

This was such an inspiring speech, gave me chills. My sister will graduate from Liberty next year, it is truly a great place.

Is this the speech that Liberty was being blasted for? You know - cause Beck isn’t the same faith as the University (even though the long standing practice of inviting folks in for the secondary event has been to invite folks from many walks)....

Excellent. Glenn is the most courageous person in the country.

The chalkboard needs to go ... but other than that the man is such a hard worker working for the best things.

One great guy. He certainly has grown up after youthful years of some turmoil.

I love the chalkboard all the more because the left mocks the chaulkboard. I can imagine why too. It’s got the truth for all to see.

I must say, I was very disappointed in the many Freepers that were dis-sin Glenn Beck and/or Liberty!
Liberty Univ. is the best place to send your child..I know as we did.
Liberty has many different speakers...from many different faiths. Glenn Beck is a man I feel God has placed at this point in time as he is saying things we need to hear... God can use people from all walks of life (christian or not).
Stop all the infighting...this is why OUR message is not getting out there. We are not united! So what if he spoke at Liberty..what business is it of yours to go off on like children.. Grow up, stop eating your own..we are FACING MUCH BIGGER ISSUES HERE THAT WHO TALKS WHERE....

Go Glenn!

Okay. But I wish he could try to write (print) a little better so it actually can be read.

;-)

Still .... Glenn is a national treasure. I pray for him, Stu, and Pat.

There is real danger even after we take back congress.

Before the end of the year, before the new members are sworn in he will initiate a raft of taxes that will further cripple the economy.

These people are downright evil.

Disagree. Bob Jones has a higher academic situation.

Good one! I happen to agree too. The chalkboard leaves the words hanging in the air long after they are spoken. Got to be killing the Progressives/Commies.

As with the chocolate..keep your hands off the chalkboard and nobody gets hurt!

Yes, we are addicted to the chalkboard. That said, other props would break up the monotony for the chalkboard overstimulated.

Yep - that’s it .. and along with the hanging words are the hanging faces - over and over and over he makes the connection between the words and the faces.

I’ve saved Tue Wed and Thur from this past week, and shortly I’m going to watch them again - having saved them on my DVR. This week was so loaded with info .. I like to watch it more than once to be sure I got all the facts straight.

No, it needs to stay as a constant reminder, even if it's in the background.

When I see Beck (not often because of schedule) I think of him riding his horse all night to get to a Sons of Liberty meeting, shouting out at the back of the hall to bring up some facts & quotes from the opposition that no one paid any attention to —

.... my imagination fails though at how he would have carried the chalkboard ...

Go Glen. The first time I heard of the illegal immigration issue was on his show — a couple of years ago before he was on Fox. I started paying attention to him then.

Thanks for posting this, STARWISE. I saw it earlier on another site and put it on my FB page....I cried right along with him. I’m so glad he’s on our side. I’m so glad he wants to spend the energy to do all he does. I’m most glad that he made the right choice at 30! He may very well be saving America.

Yes, but I understand why he does. There is so much to tell America - you need to pick your battles and use your credibility wisely. I don’t ever remember him saying it was false, just “a waste of time.”

I’ve heard and delivered many a sermon in my life, but that is one of the best sermons I’ve ever heard. That was a “Come to Jesus” sermon, and yes, I cried too. I know where he’s coming from.

we are FACING MUCH BIGGER ISSUES HERE THAT WHO TALKS WHERE

There is only one BIG ISSUE and that is that the truth is told that there is only one way to heaven and that is to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved. The question one should ask is “what will I do with Jesus?” He is either your Savior or He isn’t. God does not work in the gray area. It is a yea or nay issue.

I was a member of the moral majority (umpteen years ago). Who today is championing the cause of Christ and appearing on major cable and TV shows when there is a controversial issue like Dr. Falwell did. Franklin Graham on occasion.

Signs are pointing to last days more than ever before. We must be prepared.
