Gilbert's Persecution Of Christian Pastor
The outcome in the case of Reed v. Town of Gilbert will have significant influence on the future of your free speech.
For over 40 years, Pastor Clyde Reed and his wife, Ann, have served congregations across the United States. They are passionate about church planting and spreading the Gospel through community outreach in local hospitals, senior living centers, Alzheimer's centers, and more.
Pastor Reed's congregation, Good News Community Church in Gilbert, Arizona, currently rents temporary spaces each week for their services. Much like any pastor, Pastor Reed wants to ensure the community can find the church. How do they do that? They use signs.
Unfortunately, the Town of Gilbert imposes strict limits on the size, location, number, and duration of the church’s signs, while granting political and ideological signs far better treatment.
Pastor Reed faces fines and even jail time if his church signs are left up for too long, are too big, or too many in number—all because government officials have determined that political and ideological speech are more valuable than religious speech.
It's time to stop this unconstitutional censorship of religious speech and support pastors like Clyde Reed who just want to exercise their rights to invite people to church, serve their communities, and fulfill God's call without government intrusion.
