Turn Back To God
With evangelical passion Glenn Beck urged thousands attending his “Restoring Honor” rally Saturday to “turn back to God” and return America to the values on which it was founded.
“Something beyond imagination is happening,” he told participants who packed the National Mall in Washington. “America today begins to turn back to God. For too long, this country has wandered in darkness.”
According to CNN, Beck struck a spiritual tone throughout the day, saying his role was to wake America up to the backsliding of principles, values and most importantly, faith.
The media reported varying estimates of the crowd size.
“I have just gotten word from the media that there are over 1,000 people here today,” Beck said sarcastically.
“We are humbled that you are here,” he said. “The reflecting pool holds about 200,000 people. This field back here holds about 250- to 300,000 people. They are not only full here, they’re full in that field, they’re full behind me, and they are now across the street approaching the Washington Monument.”
