No Religious Club Announcements at School

Deer Valley Unified School District officials in Arizona's Mountain Ridge High School have been preventing one particular club from making announcements over its public address system, even though other clubs have the right to do so. What's so radical about this one club? They are Christian. The school argued that such announcement violate the First Amendment's Establishment Clause: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion..."

The Alliance Defense Fund (ADF) is representing the club and has obtained a settlement granting the club the right to take part in the same way other clubs do.
