Gordon Klingenschmitt: Constitutional Scholar

Want to know what Klingenschmitt thinks of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit’s ruling on the Fredericksburg City Council case? Well,, he’s helpfully released a version of the decision interspersed with his own erudite legal reasoning: “KLINGENSCHMITT COMMENT: THE WORD ‘JESUS’ IS NOW ILLEGAL RELIGIOUS SPEECH, BANNED BY O’CONNOR’S TWISTED READING OF THE FIRST AMENDMENT. ‘GOD’ IS PERMITTED, BUT ‘JESUS’ IS BANNED. THAT’S NOT FREEDOM. YOU MUST ‘LEAVE JESUS OUTSIDE’ IF YOU WANT TO SPEAK IN A GOVERNMENT FORUM. O’CONNOR IS WRONG, AND SO IS THE CITY OF FREDERICKSBURG.”
