The group says they feel their religious freedom is being compromised by a federal government plan to require employer health plans to cover things like contraceptives that they say violates their religious beliefs.
Rally organizer Al Carlson says, "We feel there's a potential for loss of souls because the government's telling people that they can't obey their own conscience. And the government's never done this before in the history of our land, taking away their religious freedoms. We've always had that in our country. And so with this law, they're mandating that we not be able to exercise this right."
Those guidelines from the Obama administration go into effect in August.
