A few thoughts on yesterday’s “Restoring Honor” rally turned tent revival meeting in Washington, D.C. Estimates on the crowd size vary greatly, as you might expect. Free Republic said 2 million, Gateway Pundit reported 500,000, CBS News (that evil librul media) put the estimate at between 78,000 and 96,000 based on these aerial photos:
For comparison, My DD has a photo of the 1963 March on Washington where the estimated crowd size was 250,000:
I see a lot of green in the photos from yesterday, so it looks to me like the CBS estimate is closer to reality. The crowd was the usual Monochrome Coalition from the Tea Party rallies:
I missed Palin’s speech, but here’s what I heard from Brother Beck. I heard about telling the truth from a man who spreads lies on a daily basis. I heard about love from a man whose road to fame and fortune has been paved with hate. I heard a lot of references to Dr. King from a man whose message is the antithesis of Dr. King’s. I heard the obligatory cracking voice and saw the phony tears. I heard a lot of scripture quoted by Rev. Beck which brought cheers from a crowd who will leave the site and return to the hypocrisy of claiming their belief in those scriptures while their attitudes, words, and actions show just the opposite.
Here’s one for Beck and his flock to remember, from I John chapter 4:
“If anyone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar. For anyone who does not love his brother, whom he has seen, cannot love God whom he has not seen.”
