Having watched the rally on facebook, I missed the "lily-whiteness" of the event. I saw persons of many ages and colors in attendance. I heard speakers of different faiths, and from various walks of life.
If Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.'s own niece was not only unoffended by the choice of date, but actually participated in the event, who am I to argue whether this was the "wrong day".
As an aside, I find it interesting that Rev. Sharpton's rally, held on this very same day, wasn't classified as "coal-black"...for the sake of the incredible fairness shown here...I mean...REALLY!
It's a shame he is not up for re-election this year. REALLY is a SHAME!
Wow! Talk about the government getting into places it does not belong! I think I'll vote NO for the government deciding who should be allowed to conceive. SCARY STUFF!
The current "powers that be" are trying to distract the American people from the fact this administration and this congress are driving our country off a cliff. If Race does the job, great. If not, we can try religion, right? Of course, national origin is always a winner.....America....WAKE UP!
This article, which bashes Mormons, is supposed to be an example of religious TOLERANCE? Let's call it what it is. Some are upset that conservatives are gathering and finding common ground. There is a liberal element in this country that profits (politically) by continued religious and racial division. Anyone trying to change that is thoroughly bashed, as Mr. Beck has been. It truly is shameful that such a peaceful gathering has been defined so hatefully by those who do not agree with its message of unity.
