Twin Cities Rally for Religious Freedom

March 20, 2012

Embracing Life

Please participate in this nationwide effort to help defeat the HHS Mandate. Hear religious leaders and other public figures speak about why this mandate is un-American and does not embrace life. Let’s make our voices peacefully heard in opposition to the requirement that all employers’ health plans provide free contraceptives, sterilization and abortion-inducing drugs.

According to Mary Jane O’Brien on behalf of the Minnesota Catholic Conference (MCC):

On Friday, March 23, thousands of faithful citizens will gather in public witness and prayer across the United States to oppose the HHS mandate. Minnesotans are coming together to stand in solidarity with Americans throughout the country.

Please join us!

About Kathy Schneeman

After graduating from The College of St. Thomas, I taught at Nativity in St. Paul until our oldest was just about born in the classroom (What a great lesson on life that would have been for my students!) I then became a stay-at-home-mom while teaching religious education classes and working very part time at UST. Recently, I served as the Archdiocese's Life Coordinator in the Office for Marriage, Family and Life until twins arrived (I was almost 43!) When I have a few minutes of quiet time, I like to run, eat chocolates, scones and Mexican food (that's why I run), read, and have a beverage with my husband at night. We have a whopping nine kids (yes...same husband and same wife; we get that question a lot!) and we attend St. Joseph's in West St. Paul--where we first met when we were in grade school.

    Using religious beliefs as a cover for political partisanship is not only cowardly, it makes it harder for real religious outrage to be expressed.

    The fact is that the government does thousands of things every day that are against Catholic moral teaching. But by only coming out en masse to march for conservative causes, we show ourselves to be hypocrites without real conviction. Where were the national marches for income inequality? Where are the national marches for equal access to health care? Where are the national marches to oppose the death penalty? Where are the national marches to oppose unjust wars?

    Catholics can not allow themselves to become tools of political operatives. And in holding this march, they are showing themselves to be just that.
