Mainstream Voices of Faith Press Release

I hope you'll join me this Sunday afternoon for this important event:

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

MAINstream Voices of Faith: A Call to Action Rally

(Olathe, KS) Mainstream Voices of Faith (MVOF), a program of MAINstream Coalition, announces that it will hold a rally on Sunday, May 7, 2006 at St. Andrew Christian Church, 13890 West 127th Street, Olathe, KS from 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm. Keynote speaker The Rev. Dr. Bob Meneilly will energize people about ways to be an alternative religious voice to those who the media has named the “Religious Right.”

“Mainstream Voices of Faith is a fairly new program of the MAINstream Coalition and was developed at the request of our membership,” said Boo Tyson, its executive director. “Our members often express their frustration with having their faith questioned because they are more moderate than the radical right. In America, especially, religious liberty should be celebrated rather than denigrated.” The rally was planned to bring moderate/liberal people of faith together.

“We need to organize, mobilize, and empower the silent majority — those for whom the vocal Religious Right does not speak,” said Rev. John Tamilio III, co-chair of Mainstream Voices of Faith. “This rally is just the beginning of the work we will be doing to bring mainstream religious views back into the mainstream.”
