(Worthy News) - A federal judge has ruled in favor of a student who passed out valentines to fellow students and staff featuring Bible verses with inspirational messages and was told by the taxpayer-funded state college, she must stop because she had defied school policy.
Last year, Polly Olsen, 29, was prevented by Northeast Wisconsin Technical College's (NWTC) security guards from handing out the religious-themed cards on Valentine's Day. She was told she was in violation of the school's public assembly policy, which forbids the "displaying of signs or mass distribution of literature with offensive content or that is likely to or intended to cause a disruption."
Someone had called security to complain and Olsen was told by one of the security officers that "some people could find the message on her Valentines offensive or could consider her actions as solicitation." [ Source: CBN News (Read More...) ]
