On Friday, concerned citizens of Flint will hold a Rally for Religious Freedom to voice public opposition to President Obama’s administration’s Health and Human Services mandate. The HHS mandate forces all employers, even religious institutions such as Roman Catholic hospitals and universities, to offer contraceptives, sterilizations and abortion-inducing drugs through their health plans, contrary to their religious beliefs and doctrines.

Flint is joining with 140 other cities across the country for the June 8 nationwide “Stand Up for Religious Freedom” rallies, including New York, Chicago, Detroit, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Washington D.C. and more.

The Flint Religious Freedom Rally has been organized by Dr. Terese Rachor Beste. Guest speakers include: Earl Boyea, Bishop of Lansing and Judy Climer from Flint Right to Life. Others notable voices from various faith traditions will speak and live music will accompany the event.

“This rally is intended to draw attention to the injustice of the federal government’s riding rough-shod over the conscience of American citizens as we seek to generate even stronger national opposition to the HHS Mandate – a ruling already opposed by millions of Americans,” said Rachor Beste. “We pledge to work to end this unjust attack on our religious freedom. We intend to stand with our Bishops who have vowed that they will never comply with this unjust law. An unjust law is no law at all.”

The rally takes place at St. Matthew’s Catholic Church located at 706 Beach Street and begins at noon.
