Glenn Beck’s 8/28 Restoring Honor Rally

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 great country, for honoring our heroes, our heritage and our future. If our soldiers don’t deserve honor, I don’t know who does.

My Uncle Martin did not say that we should judge men by their support for bigger or smaller government, but rather by the content of their character. That is what I intend to address on August 28.

Speaking of Rev. Al Sharpton’s “Reclaim the Dream” march the same day, Rachel Noerdlinger, a spokesperson for the National Action Network, said, “[t]he reason it is going to be at Dunbar High School is because Rev. Sharpton said education is the civil rights issue of the 21st century.”

In the 21st century there are many civil rights issues facing our nation: education, marriage rights, the right to life, the right to abort, the right to die, capital punishment, racial profiling, injustice in the judiciary, child pornography, freedom of information, freedom of speech, freedom of religion, gay rights, women’s rights, and a host of others. And although education is an important civil rights issue, life is the most central issue of all. Without the protection of life, one never gets a chance to seek any other civil rights.

The character of a nation can be seen in how they treat their most vulnerable citizens. I cannot see any member of our society more vulnerable than those in the womb who cannot speak out. In America we are killing our most vulnerable. What does that say of our character? In a nation where more people consider themselves pro-life than pro-abortion, this should not be the case.

On August 28 we honor our soldiers that are fighting to defend our country, our honor and our character. The right to life is the most important civil rights issue of the 21st century and the protection of this right will show our true character and would make my Uncle Martin proud.

    God bless you and be with you and Glenn in DC.

    I pray daily for unity of the spirit to touch each one that day to turn us back to a Godly nation. I also pray for safety for all concerned against the forces of evil that will try to destroy this effort.

    Wouldn’t it be amazing if Al Sharpton gathered all his audience on 8/28 at the high school and marched them Down to the Lincoln Memorial to join with with you and Glenn Beck and all the other people of faith and for those hours put differences aside and have love and healing in their hearts? I think it would be incredible. It would take the country’s breath away!!

    I think Al Sharpton would be heroic and a true man of God and of peace if he could do something like that. I also think it would be a great fulfillment of your Uncle’s dream.

    That is MY dream, to see all of you together.

    Thank you, Dr. King for those most eloquent words. You took my breath away with this post. I’m sure your Uncle Martin would be very proud of you. You, like your Uncle, are national treasures.

    Dear Dr King, As follow up to your current CSM article link to the CSM 9-01 “Why They Hate Us” please go to 8-27-10 article: “What America Has Done For Muslims”. It tells of the actions by us uplifting struggling Muslims around the world. In Him, Dr Tom Roderick

    Black “Leaders” shouldn’t allow themselves to be blinded by the light. In case you haven’t figured it out yet, Beck’s “Restore Honor” mantra contains a hidden message – “Let’s hurry up and put a white president in ‘Our’ White House”. It’s not ROCKET SCIENCE!

  9. Nice choice of title for this post buddy. I think, the title itself captures my full attention, although the actual message, which is the article itself is quite good as well.
