Indian River Community College: Ban on ‘The Passion of the Christ’ and Repression of Free Speech

Category: Religious Liberty
Schools: Indian River State College

Indian River Community College prohibited the Christian Student Fellowship, a campus student group, from hosting a screening of The Passion of the Christ. The group contacted FIRE, which lobbied the administration and launched a media campaign exposing the school’s policies. Thereafter, the school denounced it actions, admitting to employing double-standards in its policies. The student group was allowed to show the movie thanks to FIRE’s successful involvement.
