MADISON -- A rally was held at the steps of the Capitol on October 20 to protest the intrusion of the federal government into religious freedom through a recent mandate by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

Del Teeter, who organized this rally in Madison to take place in conjunction with rallies occurring around the country, said that while the rally was political, it was not partisan.

“In fact, one way for this to resolve would be for the Obama Administration to repent and repeal the mandate immediately,” he said.

However, if that does not happen, he said, one of three other options must: Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney must be elected and repeal the mandate, the Supreme Court must overturn it, or we must be ready to not comply.
