Liberals who have been vigorously calling for the building of a Ground Zero mosque for the "healing of America" were appalled to hear Glenn Beck dare to mention Christianity in his call for "Restoring Honor" to our country.
And what a call it was. Even news organizations that loathe Glenn Beck and conservatives were estimating 300,000 in attendance for Saturday's event at the Lincoln Memorial, with other estimates as high as one million.
A petulant USA Today described the crowd as "overwhelmingly white," while failing to mention that the racially-mixed crowd could more accurately be described as "overwhelmingly patriotic."
The tone of Beck's event was a mixture of religious revival, history lesson, and motivational speech...delivered to an enthusiastic crowd which was entirely peaceful, entirely positive, and (as usual) tidied up the national mall before leaving.
Because the "Restoring Honor" event was pro-America, pro-troops, and non-partisan (Barack Obama's name was never mentioned in 3 1/2 hours of speeches), we hope that the liberal media will show as much of an open mind about Beck's faith-based initiative as they have toward Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf's proposed Ground Zero mosque.
