Court Says 'Million-Dollar Bill' Gospel Tracts Legal

Ad Feedback

A federal district court recently upheld the right a Christian ministry to distribute "Million Dollar Bill" gospel tracts.

Judge Jorge A. Solis ruled the Department of Homeland Security violated the rights of the Great News Network when it seized the ministry's tracts in 2006.

While the bills has markings similar to paper currency, each tract clearly states "This bill is not legal tender."

The Christian Post reports the tracts, produced by Ray Comfort and the Living Waters ministry, are GNN's most popular and effective evangelism tool.

Meanwhile, the ministry's attorney, Steve Crampton of the Liberty Counsel, applauded the court's decision.

"No clerk or bank teller will mistake the 'Million Dollar' bill for legal tender," Crampton said. "The Constitution stands as a bulwark against federal power and abusive law enforcement."

"The Department of Homeland Security should be tracking dangerous criminals instead of harassing innocent people of faith for handing out religious tracts," he said.
