Dr. Alveda King to Address the Restoring Honor Rally at the Lincoln Memorial August 28

Priests for Life

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Date: August 20, 2010

Atlanta, GA – Dr. Alveda King, Director of African American Outreach for Priests for Life, issued the following statement today on her upcoming appearance at the August 28th Restoring Honor Rally on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial organized by commentator Glenn Beck.

“Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s legacy, like the Lincoln Memorial itself, belongs to all Americans. I am participating in Glenn Beck’s Restoring Honor Rally not to advance any political agenda, but to advance the concept of honor in our nation.

“The Book of Proverbs teaches that before honor comes humility. The Restoring Honor Rally has been organized for the purpose of giving honor to those who have humbled themselves to serve each and every one of us by defending our freedoms. If our soldiers don’t deserve honor, I don’t know who does.

“My Uncle Martin’s dream was not that we should be judged by our support for bigger or smaller government, but rather by the content of our character. His dream was that everyone be guaranteed the unalienable rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. His dream goes beyond politics, it’s about the condition of our hearts. That is what I intend to address on August 28.”

Priests for Life is the nation's largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information, visit Priests for Life website.


TOPICS: Catholic; Current Events; Evangelical Christian; General Discusssion; Mainline Protestant; Prayer; Religion & Politics

The response to this is that Dr. Alveda King, niece of MLK Jr., will be attending this event, and will address the crowd.

“That should make those MSNBC minds explode.”

Not much of an explosion, more like a small sizzle maybe.

I am not sure how prolife oriented this event is, but if Dr. Alveda King is supporting as well as Priests for Life, then it should be promoted.

The head of the NAACP is having a cow over this rally.

Beck said C-SPAN wanted o cover it (and they should); but there was an issue about permits to lay the necessary cables or some such...they were trying to get the specifics worked out...

I don't know. Glenn Beck, with his FoxNews ties, might be some coverage in terms of taping parts of it.

It is unclear if C-Span will carry it or some other group.

I will check with someone who might know

The light is driving the so called progressives insane. Let's support representing honor in America. Blessed is he who cometh in the name of the Lord. Respect those who come and do this. We need to be there in Washington DC. Let our light shine on the “Hill”.

I just checked, and yes, c-span.org will be streaming it live. That probably deserves to be a thread in and of itself.
