Arizona Restrictions on Church Signs Reach Supreme Court

After filing a lawsuit in 2008 against a municipal law, Good News Community Church of Gilbert, Arizona, is taking their case to the Supreme Court. Due to the city’s sign ordinance, the church was forbidden from displaying directional signs on public roadways more than twelve hours prior to their services and no more than one hour after services ended. Due to the fact that their church service started at 9:00 in the morning, the earliest that they could put up the advertisements for their Sunday services would be 9:00 p.m., which would severely limit the number of those who would see the signs. On behalf of the church, the Christian legal group Alliance Defending Freedom has since appealed the case to the United States Supreme Court.
