WASHINGTON, March 24, 2014 /Christian Newswire
/ -- The Supreme Court will be hearing "Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc. and Conestoga Wood" on Tuesday, March 25, at 10:00 A.M.
The prayer vigil will begin at 9:30 A.M. and the rally will begin at 10:00 A.M. also on Tuesday, March 25.
All of the events will take place on the public sidewalk in front to the Supreme Court.
Rev. Patrick J. Mahoney, Director of the Christian Defense Coalition and one of the organizers of the event, sates,
"One of the most important religious freedom cases in a generation is being heard by the Supreme Court. In light of this it is critical that the faith community come together in prayer and public witness to challenge the justices to reject the HHS mandate in Obamacare.
"By forcing employers to purchase abortion inducing drugs and contraceptives against their deeply held religious beliefs and core values, the Obama Administration is trampling on religious freedom and the First Amendment.
"It is deeply troubling that the President of the United States would force American citizens to abandon their faith traditions and beliefs to comply with the HHS mandate in Obamacare. This presents the most serious challenge to religious freedom in a generation.
"We are gathering for prayer and public witness to encourage the Supreme Court to reject this unconstitutional HHS mandate and affirm the principles of the religious freedom and the First Amendment."
This event will go on regardless of weather conditions.
