College Admin Stops Praying Student: “This Isn’t a Free Speech Area”

Free speech is protected by the First Amendment, unless you go to school at Clemson. Then you are sadly out of luck. A young man was recently ordered to stop praying on campus because he was not in a designated “free speech zone.”

According to the Young America’s Foundation blog:

Shawn Jones, assistant director for client services at Clemson, approached the man praying near the Fort Hill section of campus around 3:15 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 25, asking him to leave because he was not in a “designated free speech area” and “solicitation” was not permitted outside of one.

Young Americans for Freedom member Kyra Palange confronted Jones on camera, questioning why he forced the individual to stop praying. Jones can be seen explaining that the entire campus is not, in fact, a free speech zone and the man would need to follow bureaucratic procedure in order to pray in that particular area.

What kind of message does this send to our rising generations? Pay attention, parents. These are the values your tuition dollars are paying for.
