ILLINOIS: Hate Group Sues College For Right To Distribute Anti-Gay Flyers

Members of an SPLC-certified hate group have sued a Chicago-area community college, alleging that their First Amendment right to be bigoted douchebags has been violated.

Wayne Lela and John McCartney, members of Heterosexuals Organized for a Moral Environment, allege they were not allowed to pass fliers out to students on one of Waubonsee’s campuses even though they did not violate any college rules. It wasn’t specified which of the four campuses they were denied from. The lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court Wednesday claims Lela contacted school employees in January, asking if H.O.M.E. could pass out fliers titled, “The Uncensored Truth About Homosexuality” and “Gay Activism and Freedom of Speech and Religion.” The college denied the request in a letter and said it “consistently limits campus activities to events that are not disruptive of the college’s educational mission,” the suit said.
