A weekly roundup of important headlines and exciting things happening at First Liberty.
Uniting In Prayer for College Students
Our client Tonya Prewitt wrote an op-ed for WORLD discussing recent attacks on Auburn football Coach Hugh Freeze because he went to a worship event on campus. Tonya led the Unite Auburn worship gathering last month. She writes:
“My attorneys at First Liberty Institute tell me that Christians—even college football coaches at Auburn University—doing Christian things at a Christian event is protected by the Constitution. Religious liberty would mean precious little if it were restricted to whispers within the four walls of our houses of worship or relegated to broom closets…Know that as you pray and as God moves on your campus, the freedoms enshrined in the First Amendment protect your right to exercise your religion.”
