    Now it is time for that Big Mouth Oreily to quit his job and leave Fox. Thats what he said he would do if beck even got 100,000 people. This is the turncoate that talks bad of Beck all the time. Braggs on himself constantly.
    Good Job Mr. Beck, you did it and God was with you on this.

    after reading this article, I still don't know what the rally was really about...restore honor - good title, wake up and do better - nice thought. Was there anything specific this rally supported or stood against? The article focuses on the celebratory parts of the rally and opposition to it - it does not give any key components what the rally was about, only who sang what, etc.

    It would be helpful if, instead of offering naive reports like this, this site would look into who's actually behind the movement and what they want. The event gives a religious sheen to what is basically just a fiscal movement designed to help certain people make money and push a fringe ideology. The first isn't so much a reference to Beck as to, for instance, those who fund Armey (who Beck is collaborating with). The second is a reference to libertarianism, something that doesn't seem to have anything in common with Catholicism. Here's a specific, work-related example of how one attendee helped those who don't have his interests in mind: http://24ahead.com/n/10185

    No mention of Sarah Palin's tremendous speech, that's a little odd.

    Why is there absolutly no mention of Sarah Palin's wonderful tribute to our military and her speech?

    What I like about Glenn Beck is that he knows history and has his facts right. Americans have to shake off their defeated spirit and become more civic minded, starting with the obligation to vote. All thats needed is to do your part, pray, learn, and vote, leaving the outcome to God. I think more people would vote if they truly prayed for this nation first and trusted that God will help. God governs the world but prayer governs God. First know what God stands for then you will know how to pray, then He will listen to your prayers. God is no fool. He is the Lord of all life.

    Why are there scare quotes around "tea party" in the second paragraph?

    How about Deacon Keith Fournier confesses himself as an MSM hack before he decides to editorialize in the middle of this piece that he pretends to advertise as journalism.

    I was there. 350 Patriotic Christians traveled from IN. to be part of the revival. I think this article simply describes what happened that day on the Mall. I would have given Gov. Palin more credit for her contribution as a mother of a soldier.
    I am also very excited by the news of the Black Robe Brigade. I believe that if our clergy carry the message of the importance of Faith, Honor, and Charity, our country may once again be healed.....God Bless America

    This article shoud be taken off the Website. Glenn Beck invited Pastor Hagee
    to speak at the Kennedy Center to the thousands of Glenn Beck's followers
    Pastor Hagee has written in lastest book: That the Catholic Church conspired
    with Hitler to kill the Jews. So why Deacon Keith Fournier would put this article
    on this website is anti-catholic.

    Thank you for having the courage to write a truthful account of yesterday's event.

    I was one of the 500,000+ in attendance. It was a wonderful day where Americans from all walks of life and areas of the country gathered to celebrate America's Judeo-Christian values. Glenn affirmed our Founding Father's devotion to God and ways He is woven into US Law, Our Founding Documents, Monuments and society.

    We celebrated all that is good about America and its people by saluting the courage and strength of our military.

    My husband and I tuned into the "news" this morning to hear a total distortion of everything we witnessed and experienced. Shame on the media!

    Kudos to Catholic.org and Deacon Fournier for giving everyone who wasn't there an honest depiction of the Rally, Glenn's goals and the spirit of the day.
