FORT LAUDERDALE, Florida (March 25, 2003) -- Two days before Beachfest with Luis Palau began, America went to war with Iraq. Throughout the March 22-23 weekend, Luis Palau turned the news uppermost in Americans' minds to an eternal angle.
" There's a war going on in Iraq," Luis Palau said Saturday night to the crowd packed from sidewalk to surf on Fort Lauderdale Beach. "But there's also a war going on in America. It's a spiritual war. A battle between light and darkness."

Well, the media reports on 20,000 people at a "peace" rally in San Francisco, but won't report on over 100,000 going to Fort Lauderdale to hear the message of Jesus Christ. The pictures sure look a lot more convincing to me.

Who cares about Luis Palau? He draws a crowd of 300,000 people to preach Christ, christian love, reconciliation... and since many evangelicals are also conservative, pro-israel, pro-life... that crowd is their worst nightmare.
