ACLU Thinks Neb Coach's Message 'Too Religious'

Ad Feedback

An assistant football coach at the University of Nebraska could be blacklisted from speaking to high school students because the American Civil Liberties Union thinks his message is too religious.

Coach Ron Brown is a Christian who frequently speaks at public schools about drug and alcohol use. He often talks about his faith during those speeches.

This prompted the ACLU to send a warning to schools districts, threatening them with lawsuits if they invite Brown to speak. School officials argue these assemblies are optional for students.

Coach Brown told a Nebraska newspaper that he is not backing down from sharing his faith with others.

"Who says stealing is wrong? Who says doing drugs and alcohol is wrong?" Brown asked. "There's a source. There's a final say and I believe that is the Lord God."

Brown said this week that he has given the same talk to students for 20 years and isn't going to change because of the ACLU.
