Bob’s Musings: Can I Have An AMEN!

30 August 2010 @ 14:32

-In light of the things Glenn Beck said at the Restoring Honor Rally and the day before to the Freedom Works Conference and the reaction of the crowds, I wonder if we are not witnessing another one of those uniquely American moments in history whereby a great religious/spiritual reawakening is beginning, one that will sweep the country and effect our culture and politics for a least a generation? 

Bob's Muse

Each century has had one since the 18th.

-While I am not a big fan of the Evangelical/Revivalist way of speechifying [I was brought up Roman Catholic and believe in getting there less demonstrably through, say, quiet discussions with a priest over cigars and whiskey], I must say that I am very, very impressed and delighted to see it happening [BTW: As a Minister in The Universal Life Church, I can tell you that I have been to the moun-tain].

-Speaking of the Rally, here are some eyewitness accounts and commentary that are well-worth reading…

=Smitty filed a report from the Rally and an after-report.

=Over At The Point Of A Gun, Dave C was there and did the same here and here.

=Admiral William Teach of The Pirate’s Cove, here and here.

=Over at The Sundries Shack, Jimmie Bise has published a damn fine aggregation of folk’s accounts and offers some fine commentary.

=Though not at the Rally nor at Al Sharpton’s pale imitation race huckster gathering, Stacy filed some good city desk reports here, here, and here.  A highlight from one of them:

…Sharpton’s crowd wanted a confrontation, and the Restoring Honor participants just smiled, probably thinking to themselves: “We’ve got Sarah Palin and 300,000 people. Who do you have? Al Sharpton, SEIU and a bunch of freaking Code Pink losers? Nov. 2 is just nine weeks away. Have a nice day.”

Beautiful.

=DaTechguy has some analysis-from-afar, here and here.

    “I must say that I am very, very impressed and delighted to see it happening”

    “Amen, selah!” as we say…

      Ran: It seems to have done a lot of good in the past. Sam Adams was inspired by one.

    Bob, Jesus is the Messiah, the Savior and Son of God. The tip of the top, the end all, beat all. The Alpha and Omega.
    Just in case there was any question. 🙂
    Like a good friend likes to say, it’s going to be interesting to watch, if these are the end times, because I know how it ends. God wins.
    God bless you, brother.

      MNR: Or as we New Englanders used to say during the Epoch of The Big Bad Bruins: Jesus Saves, but Esposito scores on the rebound.

    Seeing the left’s attacks on him for this, I think he’s on to something.
