Amistad Parade Caps Del Rio Texas Stand Up Rally

Posted by Rosie Aguilar (October 23, 2012 at 5:15 pm)

The Del Rio, Texas, Stand Up for Religious Freedom Rally was held on Friday October 19 at 5:00 p.m. at Val Verde County Court House. The date had to be moved up a day due to Del Rio’s Amistad (Friendship) Parade. Del Rio Texas is a border town and it has been a tradition to celebrate this parade with Acuña Coahuila Mexico, our sister city.

Guest speakers were Father Henry Clay Hunt, pastor of St. Joseph Catholic Church and Mr. Gene Chapman, former chairman of the local Republican party. Our emcee was Lucy Van Goethem. Letty Escobar lead the Pledge Allegiance and Father Pious, pastor of Sacred Heart Church, lead the closing prayer.

Most of our rally team participated in the Amistad parade the next day, carrying our Stand Up for Religious Freedom Signs to represent the churches of Del Rio.

This was our third Stand Up Rally and we are very proud to stand up for religious freedom.

Security Restored at Stand Up Rally Website

Posted by Matt Yonke (May 14, 2012 at 5:37 pm)

No VirusLast week hackers attacked the Stand Up for Religious Freedom Rally website as well as all the websites hosted by the Pro-Life Action League, one of the co-sponsors of the Rally effort.

Working overtime through the weekend, the Stand Up Rally IT team was able to locate and eradicate the source of the problem and restore security to the sites.

The attack couldn’t have come at a worse time as thousands were trying to access information about Rally news and locations and Rally Captains were trying to access crucial resources for planning and promoting the effort.

But all is well now and the effort will carry on undaunted. If anyone you know was disquieted by anti-virus software warnings or other error messages, please let them know that the problem has been solved and the site is now secure. And say some prayers for the protection of the Rally effort going forward.

This problem may have slowed us down, but it will not stop the Stand Up Campaign. We will stand up for our cherished liberties and we will fight to Stop the HHS Mandate!
