Stand Up for Religious Freedom rallies draw thousands; little media coverage

Catholic World News - June 11, 2012

Tens of thousands of Americans participated in Stand Up for Religious Freedom demonstrations on June 8, in cities scattered all across the country.

The Pro-Life Action League and Citizens for a Pro-Life Society reported that more than 150 events had been held on Friday, at public places from Boston to Los Angeles. The events—devoted to rallying opposition to the Obama administration’s plan for a contraceptive mandate—were virtually ignored by the mainstream media.

    National rallies were a success with many faiths participating. As usual, the USCCB botched the Catholic participation by scheduling a separate event (format undefined and no leadership) on June 21st. When will the U.S. Church become a member of the Christian community?
