The Supreme Court today ruled that religious monuments on government property constitute government speech in Pleasant Grove City v. Summum. People For the American Way Foundation President Kathryn Kolbert issued the following statement:
“I’m pleased that the Court today made clear that religious monuments like the one the Summum sought to erect are government speech. I’m especially glad the decision acknowledged that the establishment clause provides a limit on what government can use that speech to say. Government shouldn’t favor one religion over another or favor any religion over no religion at all.”
People For the American Way Foundation filed an amicus brief in the case. You can read that brief here.
