From the Editor: In support of the massive nationwide protests taking place today, and to continue all peaceful efforts to resist the unconstitutional HHS mandate, we offer the following excerpt from the home page of StandUpForReligiousFreedom.com, and we encourage all readers who care about the rights enshrined in the First Amendment to visit their site, get informed and take action today.

If you attend one of 140 Nationwide Rally for Religious Freedom locations tomorrow, you’re sure to get questions from passersby like, “What are you guys doing here?” and “What is the HHS Mandate, anyway?”
That’s why we’ve prepared an HHS Mandate Fact Sheet [PDF] for organizers to distribute to the general public, which contains FAQ style questions and answers on the HHS Mandate, along with plus some practical action items for continuing the fight.
The Fact Sheet addresses the following questions:
- What is the HHS Mandate and how does it violate religious freedom?
- Isn’t this really all about providing access to contraception?
- Didn’t President Obama work out these religious objections?
- What can I do to help stop the HHS Mandate?
We recommend that organizers print enough copies of the Fact Sheet to distribute to everyone who attends a Rally, and enough additional copies to give out to passersby who are interested in learning more about the HHS Mandate and its assault on religious freedom.
You can download the HHS Mandate Fact Sheet here [PDF]. Get informed, and spread the word!
