Silenced? Not on our watch! by Mat Staver, Liberty Counsel

The culture war in America has intensified to the point that any individual or organization opposing the radical abortion, LGBT, and anti-Christian agenda will be targeted for destruction or total submission.

Liberty Counsel’s response: NOT ON OUR WATCH!

Right now Liberty Counsel is engaged in a number of cases defending the free speech rights of ministries, business owners, and individuals who are being attacked for holding to the biblical principles of their Christian faith.

+ + Standing against another SPLC attack on free speech!

Last week, a Federal district court in Alabama issued a preliminary injunction in favor of Liberty Counsel’s client, Alabama Supreme Court Justice Tom Parker.

Two and a half years ago, Alabama Justice Parker participated in a radio interview answering questions on a wide range of issues. Expressing his professional views publically triggered the Southern Poverty Law Center (SLPC) to lodge an ethical complaint against Justice Parker. That complaint generated a yearlong investigation by the Judicial Inquiry Commission (JIC). That inquisition, and lengthy litigation, was based on nothing more than his exercise of his constitutionally protected freedom of speech. The SPLC hoped to remove Justice Parker by filing the complaint against him.

This case is important to the protection of free speech because the injunction grants all Alabama judges the freedom to publicly comment on cases pending outside of Alabama, and judges may also comment on a pending case in Alabama if their comments cannot reasonably be considered to influence the outcome.

As you likely know, our litigation team remains deeply engaged in our effort to turn back the assaults against us that are being led by the Southern Poverty Law Center’s (SPLC) legal team on multiple fronts. The SPLC is attacking Liberty Counsel in an effort to destroy this ministry.

We cannot allow anti-faith forces to diminish us. Please stand with us if for no other reason than we need each other!

New York’s top law officer says “no free speech.”

As you may know from my previous messages, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman (D) is collaborating with a radical abortionist and an avowed communist to attack the free speech of pro-life people. He is seeking to silence pro-lifers and Christians while working with at least two far-Left radicals in this legal assault. Liberty Counsel is defending one of the thirteen defendants.

In filing the lawsuit, AG Schneiderman made an absolutely unbelievable statement by declaring, “We are not a nation where you can choose your point of view.”
In fact, expressing your point of view is exactly what the First Amendment protects. And in this case, whether pro-life or Christian, those viewpoints are constitutionally protected!
Randy, unless we take action now against the radical suppression tactics being used to erode our First Amendment rights, the criminalization of pro-life, pro-marriage, and pro-liberty speech, or any speech that is counter to the far-Left’s ideologies, will be inevitable.

Losing this case could release the floodgates for even more attacks on people of faith who dare to stand for biblical values.

We must stay vigilant on each of these legal fronts!
