Man booted from state Senate gallery for wearing shirt with name of his organization

Colorado already has established itself firmly as an anti-Christian state, with the authority to dictate how Christians must act under their faith.

It’s been reprimanded by the U.S. Supreme Court for its “hostility” to the faith, and it repeatedly has gone to court, including yet another case at the Supreme Court now, to try to force Christians to violate their faith by supporting its LGBT agenda.

Not a surprise, really, since its multimillionaire governor openly lives in the state’s governor’s mansion with his same-sex partner.

It is ardently pro-abortion, too, and recent its lawmakers claimed that the unborn have no rights.


But now it is moving even further to enforce its beliefs. It has ejected from the state senate gallery a man wearing a shirt with the trademark of his think tank on it.

It’s because the trademark, which is in the process of being obtained now, for the Centennial Institute at Colorado Christian University is “Pro-Life U.”

A report at the Federalist explains Jeff Hunt conceded there is a small sign that says expressing “political statements” isn’t allowed in the state Senate.

But there’s no such reference under gallery rules for the state’s general assembly.

And, the report pointed out, just weeks ago a group of students wearing anti-Second Amendment apparently, clearly a political statement, was allowed in the gallery without opposition.

“It takes about five minutes to Google and find that there’s plenty of other examples of people wearing political apparel into the Senate gallery,” Hunt said in an interview with The Federalist. “It seems bizarre that on one hand, they’re allowing a more liberal progressive worldview to be able to speak freely, but then the conservative worldview is not … It definitely doesn’t seem to be fair and equitable.”

State assembly officials declined to respond to questions.

Hunt explained in the report he was there for “Pregnancy Resource Center Day,” where he worked to rid the assembly members of myths about those centers.

That event followed the push for legislation by Democrat lawmakers to “censor and restrict” the beneficial work of those centers.

The shirt also was not a political statement.

“I explained to [the Sergeant at Arms] that [my ‘Pro-Life U’ sweatshirt] is our university name. This isn’t just a political statement. This is our identity and CCU’s identity, and we have submitted a DBA — a Doing Business As — and a trademark on this. And I’m just representing our university here,” he said.

He pointed out, too, that the Supreme Court has ruled bans on political apparel in polling places violate the free speech protections of the First Amendment.

He called it “bizarre” that Colorado’s leftist lawmakers were imposing such a speech ban.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Question: Why do the political and corporate leaders of America – long the freest, most successful, most prosperous and most Christian nation in history – bow and scrape before China, a ruthless, communist, totalitarian and explicitly atheistic dictatorship openly committed to ruling the world, including America?

The astonishing answers come into focus only when one contemplates both the unprecedented level of political and financial corruption in America’s ruling class (multiple Biden family members received $31 million in payola from China), and simultaneously the communist Chinese government’s brilliantly devious methods of unconventional total warfare, by which China is stealthily infiltrating, subverting, corrupting and colonizing the United States of America.

The China threat has rarely been more dramatically or pointedly documented than in the sensational March issue of WND’s critically acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine, titled “HOW CHINA IS CONQUERING AMERICA.” Whistleblower is available in both the popular print edition and a state-of-the-art digital version, either single issues or discounted annual subscriptions.
