Good sign: Pastor wins free speech case at Supreme Court

Via Christian Examiner:

The Supreme Court on June 18 issued a unanimous verdict in favor of an 82-year-old Arizona pastor who was told by his town he had to adhere to stringent rules and time limitations for posting signs advertising church services.

The town of Gilbert, Arizona, according to the Court, had established a strict sign code but set in place different requirements for some signs, such as those with political advertisements, than others – namely those advertising events or services.

Under the town’s sign code pastor Clyde Reed was only allowed to post temporary directional signs for Good News Presbyterian Church for less than 12 hours.
