Just finished watching the Restoring Honor rally. Looks to be like over 750,000 people attended the rally. Also, the live Facebook feed had over 130,000 watchers. With it being shown on C Span, this is probably one of the largest rallies in history.

Only dwarfed by the 9/12 rally and about the same size(edit here, sorry, I meant to say half the size-just reread the OP-oops) as the Obama inauguration. Some are estimating more than 750k, I myself estimate right in that range using the National Park crowd estimation map.

It was quite inspirational.

The black robe regiment has been called into being again. Wonder if the feds are going to threaten the Churches not to talk politics in the Churches?

Today was pivotal folks. The Churches have come out and said they will no longer stand by and let the country be destroyed.

All denominations were there.

Heck, Alveda King's segment was as inspirational as Glenn Beck's was. I leaned toward the Beck speech because of him including segments from my favorite founder-Thomas Jefferson.

Anyway, glad to see even the MSM has admitted to the size of the crowd.

I wish I could of went. But the live feed was great.

At least THIS time, the MSM cannot fudge the numbers.

OH, well the New York Times tried.
Before it even began, they did the SAME thing they did to the last rally, they had their headline read, THOUSANDS show up to the Glenn Beck rally. Funny, you would think as a business, they would attempt to cover the truth, when their losing money hand over fist.

oh, what was I thinking, they are just one of the MSM propaganda locations.

November right around the corner.

For my part though, the voting really no longer matters.

I am using my God given right to remove my consent to be governed. I am now governing myself. They no longer have any jurisdiction afforded them.

God Bless and Peace.

And if you missed it, as soon as I get a link to the video, I will post it.

I watched it. I thought it was well done. They've got as much a right to the steps of the Lincoln Memorial as anyone else and they put on a good Christian presentation. Al Sharptons yells of 'it's just racism' look ridiculous.

Actually, they wouldn't threaten the churches, they would just take away their tax exempt status. Churches have every right to talk politics as long as they don't mind paying taxes like the rest of us. Thats the big rub. A lot of church leaders don't want to lose their nice cars, expensive homes and even personal jets yet still want to be able to push their politic view from the pulpit.

I will have to give Beck credit for the big attendance at his Goldline sponsored book promotion event. He should be able to sell a large number of volumes of his new book "The Plan".

Last number I heard was 500,000.

If you have to ask what honor is missing from America then you must think everything in this country is alright. In that case, you'd best look in the mirror next time you mutter the word 'delusional'.

Religion shouldn't enter politics!!

Repeat after me: THE USA ARE NOT A THEOCRACY!!

All I saw was 750k (or however many) people standing around a pool, listening to people who talk about rainbow unicorns and cute little leprechauns. Why? Because tabbing into people's faith makes it VERY easy to steer those gullible believers and brainwash them with whatever agenda they want. Also, notice how they had a rabbi and a Christian priest...but funny enough no Muslim? Sure, they're not racist

Lately, FOX started a tirade against Muslims...and now we have crazy people entering mosques and pissing all over the place. What happened to "freedom" and "liberties", the core values of this nations?? They are trying to turn the country into a theocracy, and it's not only scary, but also kinda sad.

That is what I mean by threaten.

If you have not heard, many Pastors have purposefully talked politics on the pulpit, recorded it and then sent it into the Dept of Injustice.

They want to fight the ruling.

This is what I meant by the black robe brigade.

Even the Kennedy Center attempted to tell Beck that they would not be able to pray because of the Federal connection.

They were told to piss off.


Peaceful NON COMPLIANCE.

As millions have already decided to do. Just watch what is going to happen.

It is time we just took back our rights they have stolen from us.

Fine, they want to enforce unConstitutional laws? So be it, time to go to court, on EVERYTHING.

I hear it was a very positive event promoting hope and unity. I'd like to see how this plays out in the news. I think they broke up in time for the Al Sharpton Group to march there and have the area to themselves.
Almost as if it were choreographed.

Why not? People have a right to vote in any manner they wish. They have a right to vote based upon their religion. Freedom of religion. Remember that? And those running for office have a right to whatever religion they want to believe in .. or not believe in if they are athiest.

BTW .. it wasn't a political rally. It wasn't republican or democrat. It was a religious rally. Christians gathering together to pray to their God and ask Him to help their country.

Wouldn't you rather have half a million people armed with prayer than half a million people armed with suicide bombs?? The rally hurt no one. Let 'em be.

Yeah, I imagine the racism platform is really getting to look bad.

Oh well, when you have no standing, just like someone here on the thread did to me, call someone something derogatory.

Standard fare I guess.

a positive step in the right direction IMO.

I would have been there if I could have.

But the movement has my support
along with millions more watching it
from various sources.

When the Gubment fights the church
the gubment will lose.

Horrible to see that a substantial part of mankind is still not capable of analyzing ancient scriptures and seeing them for what they are.

Worse is the way these folks abuse and brainwash their children into believing the same lies as they were once told....

Let me post that little thing called the Constitution again, shall I?

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Now tell me again, where do you find the part where a law has been written?

Oh, nope, no law written.

So please, take your obfuscation and


Tell me, did you watch the rally. NO? Thought not, hey, better get over to Media Matters and get your talking points and video edited clips to prove your NON POINTS.


If you would have WATCHED it, you would have realized Muslims were included in the rally.

Ooops, they were even mentioned several times.

Oh my GOD.

Oooops, I just said GOD.

Hey, the government created the internet, does that mean I cannot mention it here?

Why is it that on any religion related thread there is always that one group of people telling us how delusional we are and how we're wrong when the thread itself has nothing to do with proving or disproving our religion?


Regardless, I believe it was a great idea to form this rally, and the numbers are astounding... especially since it was a religious one.

One of the BIGGEST things in regards to the American Revolution was spiritual freedom.

The one part that REALLY stands out is that this was not just one religion. This is all of them they could get on stage.

I think they had like 285 Pastors, Priests, Rabbis, etc etc etc.

Yes, they get to believe in what they want, yet have to denigrate other's for their beliefs.

They are such enlightened ones are they not.

Instead of the argument going that way on the thread though, I am not a religious man, I am a spiritual one.

I follow no Church, I follow the word. Not the Pelosi one either.

I follow the word that became flesh.

Anyway everyone, thanks for the comments.

I wanted to get MY estimate for the crowd here on ATS before we got a Media Matters, New York Times or other propagandist rag saying again there were only thousands there.

My estimate is again on the given numbers of the Obama inaugaration and the National Parks estimation map.

I think if we are talking about people that live their lives according to a collection of ancient scribbles and actually believe them to be fact it's just worrying. Especially when a great deal of religious people try to decide for others how to live their lives. Manifesting themselves in the numbers you claim shows me that mankind is far from being mature.

That you find those words denigrating I understand and therefore I apologize not out of guilt but out of pity.

Lets get one thing straight, I love these people for standing up for what they belief in, just their belief is that what worries me.

I have to say that I find nothing
inspirational about a bunch of brain
dead idiots kissing the ass of a delusional
hypocrite.

Once again some of you have forgotten
who gave you your rights. HINT: it
wasn't god.

I also find it ironic and sad that most of
the far-right conservatives and more
importantly the tea-party movement
crying about judges failing the country
and the Constitution by "legislating from
the bench".

If you really believe that then every women in those movements should
stay out of politics. When the Bill of Rights
was written women could not vote. As a
matter of fact almost all men who were
not land owners could not either.

I have to ask if you are still willing to be
strict Constitutionalists and give up every
Right that came after the original Bill
of Rights?

And could someone actually tell me what
Rights have been taken from me under the
current administration?

The only Rights that I know have been taken
(Right to confront my accuser in open court,
the Right to a trial by a jury of my peers,
my Right to a speedy trial, the Right to hear
the evidence against me, and the Prohibition
against Cruel and Unusual Punishment were
taken from me under President Bush.

We (you) still have the right to practice
your religion as you see fit (as long as you
do not live in NYC and your a Muslim that is).

We still have the Right to Bear Arms, Freedom
of the Press, Freedom of Speech. So please,
I need you people to tell me what Rights
you have lost. Do not give me some long
winded explanation for your thinking, come
right out and tell me.
