Rally September 30th - Be There

This is a reminder about the rally to pray and protest the HHS mandate that will be held downtown on Sunday, September 30th.  Please click here to see that post and its details.

I'd also ask that you read to the very end of that post.  While I fully agree that the HHS mandate must be opposed now lest we be forced to suffer its consequences, I do not believe the strategy of provoking arrest serves any purpose and may be sinful itself.  Let us remember that while the Christian martyrs throughout the ages accepted and endured their sufferings rather than compromise with the world, they did not deliberately provoke them.  Moreover, one does not protest an unjust law by breaking another, wholly-unrelated law that is at worst morally neutral.

I hope to see many of you down there.
