SCOTUS rules in favor of church in free speech battle

Via The Daily Caller:

The Supreme Court ruled in favor of a small Arizona church Thursday, saying its free speech and religious liberty were violated by a local government ordinance unfairly discriminating against the church.

 

Good News Community Church moved locations so often it used signs to let its devoted know where the next service would be.

 

The town of Gilbert had strict sign ordinances that specified how big signs could be and how long they could stay posted, all of which varied depending on the content of the sign.

 

Signs for religious events could be put up 12 hours before the event and had to be taken down within one hour after it ended. But political signs could stay up for months and ideological signs could stay up indefinitely.
