Hundreds gathered in Hartford to be a part of A National Rally for Religious Freedom. Senator Joe Markley (R-Southington) spoke to the crowd on March 23 at the U.S. Courthouse in Hartford.
The rally, organized by www.standupforreligiousfreedom.com, aimed to counter the increasing and unprecedented unconstitutional attacks on our religious freedom at all levels of government. More than 600 people attended.
Many at the rally said this should be a battle cry for all faith institutions – the First Amendment of the United States Constitution is under attack.
The ObamaCare mandate infringes on the First Amendment’s protection of the free exercise of religion and also violates the Religious Freedom Restoration Act. Our government should be protecting freedom, not violating it. We strongly object to this violation of the United States Constitution.
