An American university has ordered a Christian student NOT to have any contact with three other students, who disagreed with her faith-based views.
Lawyers from Alliance Defending Freedom say that violates Maggie de Jong’s free speech protections under the US constitution.
They say the order prevents her from fully participating in classes or group chats, where the other three students are present.
They’ve written to the Southern Illinois University, threatening legal action if the order is not withdrawn.
The university agreed the art therapy counselling student did not violate campus policy.
Christian Headlines reports the three students complained after Ms de Jong told them her personal beliefs are grounded in the Gospel.
Alliance Defending Freedom said universities should be marketplaces of ideas, not assembly lines for one type of thinking.
