New York Town Singles Out Gospel Message Display with Citation

With all the filth displayed on billboards, bumper stickers, t-shirts and other displays, the city of Governor, New York issued a citation to an individual displaying the hope of the gospel message on a trailer sitting on his business property.

Attorney's from the Alliance Defense Funding sited, "The U.S. Supreme Court gives special protection to speech on private property. It has distinctly ruled that the government cannot give commercial speech on private property more rights than non-commercial speech on private property. And it does not allow towns to ban religious speech just because some may consider it ‘offensive,’ as this town’s permit scheme allows."
