free-speech zone (stop sign shape)A Christian student organization has filed a federal lawsuit against officials at Kennesaw State University.

Ratio Christi of Kennesaw State University says school officials declared its pro-life display controversial and exiled it to a "speech zone" that makes up less than 0.08 percent of the 405-acre campus.

Barham

"Public universities are supposed to be the marketplace of ideas where all ideas are welcome, not just those that university bureaucrats consider acceptable," says attorney Travis Barham of Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), the organization representing Ratio Christi.

"Kennesaw State's speech zones are unconstitutional because the First Amendment exists precisely to protect speech that government officials think is controversial," adds ADF Senior Counsel Tyson Langhofer, director of the ADF Center for Academic Freedom. "Because today's students will be tomorrow's leaders and voters, universities should live by example in demonstrating the importance of our freedoms protected by the First Amendment instead of communicating to an entire generation that the Constitution doesn't matter."

The lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia.

As for Kennesaw State University's response? "As this is pending litigation, we will decline to comment."
