Library Ignores Legal Precedent by Discriminating against Christians
Faith and Freedom with Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver and BarbWire’s Matt Barber… An 11-minute weekday radio program discussing hot topics in the area of religious liberty, the sanctity of human life and the family.
Liberty Counsel filed a lawsuit against a Massachusetts public library for censorship of religious expression.
Mat Staver: Matt, this is in Lawrence, Massachusetts, Liberty Counsel filed a federal lawsuit against the City of Lawrence in Massachusetts for its public library’s policy and its denial of access for civic and educational program that include religious content.
This is a meeting that Liberty Counsel filed an application to hold at the library, and Liberty Counsel was denied the right to be able to meet in this library common community room. Even though it’s open to non-profit groups, it was closed to people with religious viewpoints.
That is blatantly unconstitutional.
Matt Barber: Yeah…the notice says religious groups may use the library’s meetings rooms for administrative purposes but shall not be allowed use for the sake of proselytizing or otherwise influencing people to a belief or point of view.
Well, where in the first Amendment does it say that?
This is unbelievable! This is viewpoint discrimination at its worst!
