College Students STAND UP For Jesus And Go To Court

Do you remember the Jesus Movement of the 60's and 70's? The term "Jesus freaks" was coined then, in reference to people who let Jesus fully take over their lives. They would go on campuses and in public places, telling everyone joyfully about Jesus. Many in the Baby Boomer generation were saved through those "Jesus freaks" who just couldn't stop talking about their faith. And thank God for them.

But now, college campuses are becoming increasingly hostile to the gospel. North Carolina State, for example, has banned a Christian group for talking about their faith to other students in the public square. Fox News reports that Grace Christian Life, a registered student group at NC State, was told that they could not talk about their faith without a permit. As this is a complete violation of the 1st Amendment, they are taking the matter to court.

“It’s an amazingly broad speech restriction," says Alliance Defending Freedom attorney Tyson Langhofer. “Public universities are supposed to be the marketplace of ideas, not places where students need a permit just to exercise their constitutionally protected freedoms.”

And Christians are being specifically targeted in this censorship. The lawsuit says, “The University has not restricted the ability of other students and student groups to engage in expressive activity. Grace has witnessed other students, student groups and off-campus groups handing out literature either without a permit or outside of the area reserved by their table permit.”

But these Christian college students aren't giving up without a fight.  “Colleges are supposed to be places where ideas are freely shared – not gagged,” said Grace Christian Life President Hannalee Alrutz. “The only permit a student needs to speak on campus is the First Amendment.”

We stand and applaud Alrutz and the rest of Grace Christian Life! They are standing for all of our freedom, and more importantly, for Jesus! Do you agree?
