Topeka, Kansas: Saturday, June 29: All four Catholic bishops of Kansas spoke at the rally against the HHS mandate, as did others including Governor Brownback and Senator Jerry Moran. Small American flags were distributed as well as water.
The crowd was enthusiastic despite the heat. When we arrived the police told us that we could not bring the banner and standard and flag on the Capitol grounds since they were attached to poles.
So, we stood on the sidewalk and greeted and encouraged people as they arrived for the rally.
