Christian conversation in public requires "Sponsorship" authorization at University

At the Murray State University, in Murray, Kentucky, students were allowed to speak in the public areas, except if that speech was a Christian message, as discovered by James Gilles. This form of speaking in the public space required special "sponsorship" by an MSU official. When Gilles attempted to have this violation of free speech corrected, it eventually lead to a federal lawsuit, with the Alliance Defense Fund represented Gilles. The court decided in Gilles' favor.

As expressed by Nate Kellum, ADF Senior Counsel, "Christians should never be treated as second-class citizens simply for choosing to express their faith in public areas."

Christian no longer barred from exercising his First Amendment rights at Murray State Univ.
