"'The Awakening 2013': What the Mainstream Media Didn't Report" Charisma News, April 22, 2013
American patriotism shone brightly during last weekend’s conference, The Awakening 2013, an annual event staged by the Freedom Federation. Compelling speeches and a call to return to biblical principles from several nationally influential figures were the order of the day.
Speakers such as 2012 presidential candidate Michele Bachmann, retired Lt. Gen. Jerry Boykin, and authors Pamela Geller and Frank Gaffney, among many others, fired up the audience with inspirational speeches, compelling the nation to return to its godly roots and calling on citizens to “fight for the soul of America.”
Following are a few noteworthy quotations from the conference:

“We are witnessing in Europe now what Hitler could not accomplish years ago.” —Pamela Geller“It’s been an interesting week—the bombings in Boston and Texas and the trial of a blood-soaked monster [abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell]. Don’t believe that Almighty God doesn’t see this and will not bring about His justice.” —Michele Bachmann, U.S. representative from Minnesota
