In the past year and a half, we have been told what we can and can not do. Here is a case where a church was told by a city what they could put on a sign.
The US Supreme Court agreed to hear the decision in the case of Reed v. Town of Gilbert. The Court sided with the small church in its fight over limits on roadside signs directing people to Sunday services. Liberal and conservative justices expressed misgivings with the sign ordinance because it places more restrictions on the churches’ temporary signs than those erected by political candidates, real estate agents and others.
What we put on signs is covered by the First Amendment. This says Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
