Television star Chuck Norris also made a guest appearance at the event with his wife, Gena, who, when he was on stage, he referred to as his “prayer-warrior.” Norris quoted many of the nation’s Founding Fathers’ writings as a way to show their support for faith in the United States.

“What does it take to get me and Gena off our ranch in Texas?” Norris asked the crowd. “An order of Congress? No — only God or Glenn Beck.”

Vietnam War veteran Dave Reever said he thinks God has a plan for America and praised all American troops, past and present, for their work protecting the country.

“There’s a reason the Taliban doesn’t have a grenade rolling down that aisle right now and there’s a reason al Qaeda doesn’t have a truck bomb out in the parking lot right now,” Reever said. “That reason is the United States of America.”

Beck wrapped up the night with a plea to the audience to take action and reclaim the nation’s honor.

“America is at a crossroads,” Beck said. “Every one of us is here for a reason. Tomorrow, I’m going to challenge you to figure out what it is. We are 12 hours away from fundamentally changing the United States of America.”

    Welcome to your first Mormon General Conference.

    11:00 Beck discusses his medals, based on President George Washington’s Badges of Merit, announced the new Badges of Merit: Faith, Hope and Charity. Plans to award them to civilians. Based on Purple Hearts, but only military are eligible for those.

    The Mormon’s Thirteenth Article of Faith :
    “We believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous, and in doing good to all men; indeed, we may say that we follow the admonition of Paul- We believe all things, we hope all things, we have endured many things, and hope to be able to endure all things. If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy, we seek after these things.”

    Then next step is to pledge 10% of your gross income to his cause.

    God Bless Beck, and all those who hear the Great American prophet! He is a man that any good and sane person can respect and emulate, and has more courage than anyone I have ever known. Furthermore, he is a man of humility, and a perfect counterpoint to Obama, the malignant, evil, narcissist.

    Beck is showing this nation what selfless leadership is all about, and the contrast to Obama couldn’t possibly be greater. The irony of Beck’s rally, espousing among other things, the words of MLK, is overwhelming, and the left, who thought they had buried MLK is writhing in fury that Beck has resurrected his message. This was intentional on Beck’s part, and clearly shows Beck to be the genius warrior in the struggle between good and evil that he is.

    May God protect Beck, and Palin, from the evil that would like to see them dead.
