Over 100 Cities Rally Against Obama’s HHS Mandate

Posted by Matt Yonke (March 9, 2012 at 11:11 pm)

Rally CitiesThe March 23 Rally for Religious Freedom is now two weeks away and just today our list of cities taking part just reached 102!

It’s been years since I’ve seen people as fired up as they are about standing up for their First Amendment rights against this egregious Mandate. We expected a great response to these rallies, but rallies in the triple digits shows a level of enthusiasm we never could have predicted.

From Portland, Maine to Portland Oregon and all the way out to Hawaii the American people are sending a message to the Obama Administration: We will not stand idly by while you destroy the freedoms that make this country great.

Check out the Locations Page to see all the cities taking part and find a Rally near you. Don’t see one in your area? Time is getting short, but there’s still time to get one going if you act fast. Contact the Rally Team today to find out how.

Catholic Bishops to Speak at Rally Sites

Posted by Matt Yonke (February 24, 2012 at 10:51 pm)

BishopsThe March 23 Nationwide Rally for Religious Freedom was called in response to the Catholic bishops’ call for the laity to stand up against Obama’s nefarious HHS Mandate. Laity of all faiths—not just Catholics—have heeded their call and now over 60 cities are confirmed for this nationwide effort.

And now we’re pleased to see those very Catholic bishops are joining the Rally themselves! Three bishops have signed on so far. Washington DC auxiliary Bishop Barry Knestout (left) is confirmed for the Germantown, Maryland rally, Bishop Michael Byrnes will attend in Detroit (center) and Bishop Cirilo Flores (right) will attend in San Diego.

With all 181 US Catholic bishops vocally opposing the HHS Mandate—including a strong new statement [PDF] from New York’s Cardinal Timothy Dolan—we hope to see more and more of religious leaders of all faiths joining the Stand Up Rally on March 23.

Update 3/16: Unfortunately, Bishop Barry Knestout had a schedule conflict and will not be attending the Germantown Rally. However, in the interrim several other bishops have been enlisted to speak at Rallies across the country. Updated list coming soon!
