A Georgia college says sharing the gospel is “fighting words”

Georgia Republicans keep refusing to pass religious liberty legislation because they keep saying “it’ll never happen here.” It keeps happening. The state recently settled a lawsuit after firing a doctor over the content of Sunday sermons he had preached.

In the latest, Georgia Gwinnett College is trying to have a lawsuit dismissed claiming the student plaintiff had spoken “fighting words” on campus and had no first amendment protections. The fighting words? The student, Chike Uzuegbunam, went to a free speech zone on campus and shared the gospel.

The lawsuit, filed in December, is here.

Georgia Gwinnett College has now filed a motion to dismiss claiming sharing the gospel is akin to fighting words and has no legal protection.
