As Erosion of Free Speech Continues 34% Feel First Amendment Guarantees Too Many Rights

Florida Atlantic University (FAU) has adopted a new “Free Speech and Campus Civility” policy, which essentially disregards the First Amendment. Though initially the document espouses the benefits of free speech, it abruptly launches into an assault on the First Amendment rights of the FAU community. “What we do insist on, however, is that everyone in the FAU community behave and speak to and about one another in ways that are not racist, religiously intolerant or otherwise degrading to others,” the document reads.

But, this is in direct opposition to the First Amendment. The university has banned speech that is clearly protected under the First Amendment. It is also protected under Florida’s constitution.

Help Us Tweet for Voter Guides

If you are a Twitter user, you can help us spread the word about our 2012 voter guide campaign simply by clicking your mouse!

Let me explain.

We have created a Twitter campaign page on our site called “Tweet for Voter Guides!”, and it makes it easy for you to encourage leading conservatives on Twitter to post an update to their followers letting them know about our voter guides, and to encourage them to sign up.

You simply click here to visit the page, and then click any of the images of familiar conservatives you see there. 

When you do, your Twitter page will come up with a personalized custom message already created for you to send to them and encourage them to tell their followers about our Voter Guide program.

The 2012 election is fast approaching - and the more people that we sign up to receive and distribute voter guides to others, the more Americans we can help educate before they go to the polls this November.

Christian Coalition is on Twitter
