WHAT: The Next Rally for Religious Freedom
WHEN: June 8 at Noon Local Time
WHERE: Your Home Town!

Stand Up for Religious Freedom | Nationwide | June 8, 2012It’s with great excitement that Monica Miller and I announce that the next Stand Up for Religious Freedom will take place Friday, June 8 at noon local time, coast to coast.

The huge controversy over Barack Obama’s HHS Mandate is growing, and it’s time to take the next step to stop this attack on religious freedom.

Last month, over 63,000 Americans gathered at sites in 145 cities for a massive rally in protest of the Mandate.

They said NO to the HHS Mandate, which forces employers—including religious charities—to provide contraceptives and abortion-inducing drugs in their health plans, for free.

June 8 date prepares the ground for the Obamacare ruling

Now it’s time to build on that great momentum with the next Stand Up for Religious Freedom Rally, and June 8 is the perfect date.

Right now the entire Obamacare law, with its oppressive mandates and abortion loopholes, is under review by the United States Supreme Court. A ruling is coming at the end of June.

If the Supreme Court strikes down Obamacare, the June 8 Rally sets the agenda for future health care reform, demanding respect for religious liberty and freedom of conscience.

But if the Court leaves Obamacare intact, the June 8 Rally advances our demand that the HHS Mandate must go.

Defend the First Amendment on June 8!

Come out on June 8—which happens to be the 223rd anniversary of the day James Madison introduced the Bill of Rights in Congress—and help prepare the ground for the Obamacare ruling!

Last month’s Stand Up for Religious Freedom Rally hit the “reset” button on the HHS Mandate controversy, putting the focus where it belongs: respect for religious freedom.

On June 8, people of faith will hit the streets again to demand that all our health care laws respect the role of religious faith in the public square.

Captains are signing on now for the June 8 Rally

Over the next week, the Rally Captains for the March 23 event will be letting the national team know whether they’re in for the June 8 Rally. Dozens have already signed on.

On Friday, April 20, Monica and I will be putting out the call for new Rally Captains in the cities where rallies were hosted last month.

If your city wasn’t on the Rally map last time around and you want to host a rally this time, just get in touch with the national team and we’ll get things started.

    I think you would get a better response if this were done on a weekend. Many people I know wanted to attend the last one in March but were unable to do so because this was held during the work week.

    I agree with Marcia,

    Friday at lunch time is only convenient for the people at lunchtime that work in the area. On the other hand. There are no government offices open on the weekend to impress. a bit of a corundum!

    I have seen too many children that were deprived of love because they were neither wanted nor loved. I now offer the suicide of my seventeen year old son Tim as a testimony to my statement. His suicide was centered at the fact that his biological mother abandoned him and his brother Mathew twelve times before they were taken away from her by the State of Missouri. Unfortunately, most of the damage had already been done to Tim. I have some simple questions. How many of the people that are “anti-abortion” would adopt these unwanted and unloved children??? How many would offer them all of their unconditional love and attention with only hopes that they will be fine? How many could cope with the loss of a son because he could not cope with his biological mother’s rejection? I love both of my sons and always will. Many of these unwanted and unloved children however become criminals and murderers. Indeed, most of these damaged children carry scars their entire live. For some, this makes it impossible for them to cope with life.

    Karl, I am sorry for your loss. There are more people in this country that are looking to adopt than there are children. Pro Life people are just like you and me, loving and hurting daily.

    The reason the Catholic Church must stand up for religious freedom is because being a catholic, is not completed unless some love is given to others. That is why we are fighting for our Catholic Charities, Hospitals, Adoption Agencies, etc… It is the freedom to express our religion by loving others. Ave Maria.

    Karl Markl I believe Tims life is a testimony in what Jesus is calling you to do. Don’t let his death be in vain. The catholic church sees suicide as a mental condition that is treatable. There for not seen as a mortal sin. So while Tim is living with Jesus in his eternal life. I’m sure he is looking down on you in hopes you do something on behalf of those children that are in his situation right now. Start a small ministry on there behalf become a mentor or even just an ear to listen or a shoulder to lean on. Our God is a mighty God. If you are mad at Him He can take that. Use that energy to promote an end to teen suicide. Don’t live by what ifs. Just know even the longest life is short and it is up to us to bring th love of Jesus to this crazy mixed up world You will be in my prayers for the rest of my life. Your friend in Christ David.

    The interpretation of “religious freedom” by you right wingnuts is Evangelical, Fundamentalist, Catholic and Orthodox Jew. All others aren’t included in your definition.
