    OneNewsNow: “Alliance Defending Freedom attorney David Cortman tells OneNewsNow no law should force churches to the bottom of the barrel. ‘The town of Gilbert cannot apply stricter rules to church signs when it doesn’t apply them to ideological, political and other non-commercial signs,’ he assert, ‘because the Ninth Circuit’s decision conflicts with the decisions of other circuits, we hope the Supreme Court will agree to step in.’”

Keep an Eye on Greece – Greece v. Galloway, That Is | Independent Women’s Forum

Supreme Court’s Docket Full of Potential Mischief | The New American

    The New American: The case wound its way up to the Supreme Court, where Greece is being represented by David Cortman of the Christian advocacy group Alliance Defending Freedom. Cortman responded that if the Supreme Court rules in favor of Galloway and Stephens, It would have to abandon prior precedent, it would have to abandon hundreds of years of practice going back to the founders of our country, and [it would] put in jeopardy the many practices and events that reflect our religious heritage throughout the country…. The folks who have volunteered to pray before the meetings are merely reflective of the demographics of the town. Just because a town may happen to be more Christian that a different religion doesn’t automatically create a constitutional issue…. [If the court decides in favor of Galloway and Stephens] the new test would be: “If I see or hear something that may offend me, and it happens to be religious, that creates some sort of constitutional violation.” We would have challenges to all of these [traditions]. That would create not only more disarray but not reflect the true meaning of the Constitution.
