The American Center for Law and Justice has come to the defense of a Wisconsin mother, Melissa Wolf, whose child was told by his elementary school that he couldn't distribute Christian-themed messages to his classmates as a part of Valentine's Day.

"Essentially, a student has a right to free speech unless that speech is substantially disruptive to the school ... There's no way that distributing John 3:16 is disruptive to school operations in any way, shape or form," David French, the ACLJ attorney who is representing the boy's mother, told The Christian Post on Monday. . . .

According to a letter sent from the ACLJ to the Sheboygan Area School District on Feb. 17, a teacher notified the school's principal, Matthew Driscoll, when Thielhelm began distributing the religious messages. Driscoll said the religious note had to be removed from each valentine before Thielhelm could continue giving them out. . . .
