From The Alliance Defense Fund -
MILWAUKEE — Attorneys with the Alliance Defense Fund filed a lawsuit in federal court Friday to strike down a Kewaskum village ordinance that severely restricts the constitutional right to free speech and religious freedom.
“Christians should not be penalized for expressing their beliefs,” said ADF Senior Counsel Nate Kellum. “Exercising your First Amendment rights is not a crime. Our client simply wanted to quietly leave religious literature on door handles of city residents without bothering anyone, yet the city denied him even this most basic exercise of his constitutional right to free speech.”
“It’s our hope that the court will strike down this overly broad ordinance and allow Mr. Foht and others to once again distribute literature to village residents,” said Kellum.
I hope that folks realize that the implication of this 'village law' is that it is great for me to pass out an add about something that I am selling, but that I will get fined $ 172 if I were to pass something about the Gospel.
