A Christian student is suing a college in Georgia for allegedly violating his free speech rights by severely limiting his preaching on the campus.

Chike Uzuegbunam filed a complaint on Monday against officials with Georgia Gwinnett College in the U. S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia, Atlanta Division.

In the complaint, Uzuegbunam took issue with the GGC is “Freedom of Expression Policy,” which the suit says “blocks all types of student speech to two small speech zones that occupy less than 0.0015 percent of the campus.”

“For the use of these speech zones, students must have a” free speech area request form three days in advance and submit publicity material and literature they want to distribute it to administrators for review” read the suit.

“If students want to speak — whether through oral or written communication somewhere else on campus, then they must obtain a permit from the college and the officials. Therefore, students may not speak spontaneously from anywhere on the campus. If students violate this policy, they may … expose themselves to a variety of sanctions, including expulsion.”

Uzuegbunam is represented by the Alliance Defending Freedom, a conservative law firm based in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Nor is Georgia Gwinnett College, nor the Alliance Defending Freedom returned comment to The Christian Post by press time.
