(RNS) Dozens of protesters marched briefly from the Supreme Court to the U.S. Capitol Tuesday (Sept. 9), supporting the Secular Coalition for America’s “Knit a Brick” campaign. More than 1,600 crocheted and knitted “bricks” — created or sponsored by people from all 50 states and five other countries — were sewn into three “walls” to symbolize the rebuilding of the wall of separation between religion and government after the court’s recent Hobby Lobby decision. The court ruling granted corporations religious exemptions in covering women’s contraception.
