Restoring Honor?

I have an Aunt and Uncle who are heading off across country for this thing taking place in the District of Criminals called the Restoring Honor Rally, which is set to take place on Saturday, August 28th on the steps of the Evil Tyrant Lincoln's Temple.  I honestly don't have a clue as to what they hope to accomplish but I thought I'd check out the information available about it on the web. 

Faith... in what?  Hope... in what?  Glenn Beck is a Mormon so CLEARLY it's not FAITH in Christ and Him Crucified and it's not HOPE in the resurrection... so what is it?  "Faith" in our form of Government?  "Hope" that same government doesn't decide to kill us all in an insane attempt to conquer the world? 

 I still don't know what they are getting at really, even after going through the info online.  It seems to be some sort of ultra-right-wing-super-patriot-conservative-Mormon-Christian sort of thing where they gleefully confuse Christianity with Americanism.  I wasn't going to comment at all except that when I was looking at the FAQ on Glen Beck's site I noticed the very long list of things that are...

 VERBOTEN! 

It's an amazing list really!  Check it out below.  Obviously this rally is NOT about self expression or self defense, I mean really, NO SHARP OBJECTS?  (you'll shoot your eye out!) 

I suppose it makes sense, after all, having thousands of uber-patriot types with SHARP OBJECTS and stuff like, GASP, Alcoholic beverages! (not a Lutheran gathering for sure since Lutheran Beverages are forbidden) would probably be really dangerous... or something... I guess it makes a certain sort of sense though, these are the same type of people who think it's just fine to abolish the 4th amendment and have strip searches, full body scans and cavity probes at the airports because "Safety for all is our primary concern"   :-P

Remember kids, it's about safety, NOT FREEDOM!

"Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety."  “Well, Doctor, what have we got—a Republic or a Monarchy?”  “A Republic, if you can keep it.”
Benjamin Franklin...

Oh Ben, we lost it :'(
