Nashville Event on Constitution Day Will Focus on States’ Rights, Marriage, Education, Religious Liberty and More; Tennesseans Are Fed Up with Federal Intrusion.
The Tennessee Pastors Network (TNPN, www.tnpastors.net) is partnering with several Tennessee legislators for the “Stand in the Gap for Truth” Rally at 11 a.m. Sept. 17 at the Legislative Plaza, 301 6th Ave N in Nashville.
The rally, in response to many months of judicial and political decisions that have taken away states’ rights and stripped Americans of their religious liberties, will give Tennesseans a voice and equip them to call for change. Areas of focus will include conventional marriage and family, a lax immigration system, weak terrorism laws, education, health care, religious liberties protections and the violation of the U.S. Constitution.
“Our federal government has overstepped its bounds in many ways, but especially with this summer’s Supreme Court decision on marriage,” said Dale Walker, president of TNPN. “This rally will help return hope and freedom to Tennesseans, in light of the fact that our Constitution has been grossly violated and incredibly misused. Our First Amendment rights have been trampled, and this is a chance to restore those rights. This event is not only for pastors but for all Tennesseans, and essentially, all Americans. We cannot stand idly by while our freedoms are compromised and our faith is muzzled.”
Leading the local legislators for the rally will be Rep. Judd Matheny (R.-Tullahoma), who will address the crowd, as well as garner support for the event from other lawmakers. The goal of the rally will be to help protect all Tennesseans and the state’s pastors, and communicate that an effort is under way to recapture their rights.
Also speaking at the rally will be Sam Rohrer, President of the American Pastors Network (APN, www.americanpastorsnetwork.net

TNPN is a group of biblically faithful clergy and church liaisons whose objective is to build a permanent infrastructure of like-minded clergy who affirm the authority of Scripture, take seriously Jesus’ command to be the “salt and light” to the culture, encourage informed Christian thinking about contemporary social issues, examine public policy issues without politicizing their pulpits and engage their congregations in taking part in the political process on a non-partisan basis.
