Stand Up for Religious Freedom in Roanoke July 21

Posted by Eric Scheidler (July 16, 2012 at 10:22 am)

Elmwood Park, RoanokeIn the wake of the March 23 and June 8 nationwide Stand Up for Religious Freedom rallies, I’ve been hearing from groups all across the country who are holding similar events in response to local religious freedom concerns. The latest is being held by the Foundation for America on Saturday, July 21 in Roanoke, Virginia.

The rally is inspired by two recent developments: a move by the ACLU to force the Pittsylvania County Board of Supervisors not to open its meetings with a prayer, and a recommendation by a judge in Giles County that 4 of the 10 Commandments be eliminated from the school curriculum.

The Rally will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Elmwood Park (map). If you live within an hour or two’s drive from Roanoke, come on out on Saturday and stand up for religious freedom!
