    I'm sure they do.

    A number of Christian sects would disagree.

    Sorta like how they'd say all sorts of nasty things about the Roman Catholic Church.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Technical particulars and pedantry aside, that's essentially the definition I was raised with.

    Sorry, I took this as you wouldn't want to see Christian Conservatives united, and as something that should be defeated.

    Evangelicals basically believe that everything outside their beliefs is a cult. That may/may not include catholicism, depending on the evangelical group in question.

I mean being the Tea Party is fun. Its full of dumping on the people in power and venting angry thoughts.

    But Beck's long rambling speech did not seem to move people like complaining about liberals. What compounded all this was Beck speech really wasn't very good. It was all over the place between sacrifice for future generations, founding fathers, no need for someone to rule us, how God should rule us. No central point other than go to church the next day.

    There was nothing in Beck's speech that was scary. But what I did hear was BORING! I think you saw it from the audience response that's I am not the only one who thought that.
    I'm hearing many moving stories on the radio from those who were there. This was not and wasn't meant to be a Rahh Rahh, get out the vote rally. It was not a Tea Party rally.
    The people who were there and are able to have their voices heard were moved by the whole thing. If people were bored, I'm sure MSNBC, NBC or CNN will find those people and make sure they get air time.

    The only problem with this analysis is that Beck is Mormon, not Christian.

    Looks like they had a broad cross section of people too.

    I especially liked this from your link.


    Before the multitudes assembled Alveda King proclaimed, "If Uncle Martin could be here today he would surely remind us that as brothers and sisters, united by one blood in one single race, the human race, we are called to honor God and to love each other."

    and this..
    Paul and Jeff Strange, father and son, came from Bloomington, Ill., with their friend Tom Morgan. Just prior to the formal presentations, Jeff Strange spoke presciently:

    "I came here to try and improve myself as an individual, because I think we need to restore our character in this country," he said. "We need to restore the character of our leaders, and we need to start electing virtuous leaders.

    "We're in big trouble, and it's time to do something about it," said Strange. "We came out here to be with thousands of other people to take a stand, to change ourselves and our country."

    and this...
    oh never mind :-) good link. Worth the click
