LC Protects Freedom of Speech for Good News Clubs in Washington State
Faith and Freedom with Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver and Holly Meade, 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 opens up the doors for the gospel in Washington State for the Good News Clubs.
Mat Staver: This is involving Child Evangelism Fellowship. They have the Good News Clubs in Washington, in Clarkston. There was a policy that ultimately prohibited students and others from receiving information. So the policy prohibited any information or distribution of flyers. So, while the club could meet on campus, no one could know about them. So obviously that is a moot point. Liberty Counsel got involved without any litigation. And the school to its credit, after receiving our demand letter, reversed itself, Matt.
Matt Barber: Well, once again Liberty Counsel has stepped in on behalf of Child Evangelism Fellowship dozens and dozens of times when they have been attacked by secularists, usually activists who come in and intimidate school districts and try to force them to shut down the Good News Clubs. Liberty Counsel steps in and you have won in every single instance, Mat. And in this case this is another victory!
