I thought I would highlight a couple of different Evangelical reactions to Glen Beck’s “Restoring Honor” rally that I’ve seen different Evangelicals pass around. I recognize that Glen Beck does not speak for the LDS church or for all Mormons, but he is a Mormon and his Mormonism plays a role in how Evangelicals react to his efforts.
In general, I’m not so pleased with what the Evangelical community has said about Beck or Mormonism as I am with the general call against “civil religion” as presented by Beck. Please note that I don’t personally endorse all the articles below, I’m just passing on the things I’ve seen other Evangelicals discuss.
1) An article by Russel Moore entitled God, the Gospel, and Glenn Beck
2) An interview about what troubles Albert Mohler about the rally.
3) An episode of Breakpoint by Chuck Colson which capitalizes on Moore’s article.
4) Finally, this interaction between two Evangelicals, Todd Friel (Wretchedradio.com) and Brannon Howse (Worldviewweekend.com), on a radio show called “Worldview Matters“. (there’s a short video clip from this program I’m trying to find).
