Faith and Freedom with Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver and Holly Meade, and BarbWire.com Founder 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 has a big win on behalf of an Alabama Supreme Court Justice in a free speech case which we filed on his behalf. We’re going to be talking about it on Faith and Freedom.
I’m Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel, joining me is Matt Barber, founder of BarbWire.com, and Holly Meade, the Director of Communications for Liberty Counsel.
Mat Staver: Well, we received a great decision from an Alabama federal court in favor of out client, Alabama Associate Supreme Court Justice Tom Parker.

This particular restriction, Matt, actually required, applied to all judges, including Justice Tom Parker, every judge in Alabama, in which it said that you could not speak publicly on any case pending anywhere in the United States.
Matt Barber: Yea. So this statute, says basically, you have a First Amendment right to free speech…oh…unless you’re a judge…
