Default Thousands unite for religious freedom rally

Given that the Des Moines Register leans far, far to the left, i'm quite surprised to see they covered the walk.

More inside the link.

Thousands walked and gathered Sunday in Des Moines to stand up against what they say is government infringing on their religious freedom.

The Catholic Diocese of Des Moines sponsored the Independence Celebration Walk and Picnic. Organizers estimated 2,500 people participated.

The crowd gathered at noon at the St. Ambrose Cathedral in downtown Des Moines and walked to the Iowa Capitol. The Most Rev. Richard Pates, bishop of the Diocese of Des Moines, led the group, along with Gov. Terry Branstad, who said he attended the event on his own accord.

The event was a show of solidarity with the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ “Fortnight for Freedom,” which began June 21 and will conclude on Independence Day. The two-week national campaign is intended to draw attention to what they say is the government’s infringement on their religious freedoms.
