NRB’s Milton Project Meets May 15

The National Religious Broadcasters’ John Milton Project for Religious Free Speech will meet in Washington on May 15 to discuss free speech and the Internet.

A release describing the meeting states, “How will America resolve the coming conflict between free speech on one hand and free enterprise on the other when it comes to the Internet?”

The genesis of the discussion comes from what the NRB and others see as “censorship” by some media entities when it comes to religious discussions.

NRB Senior VP and General Counsel Craig Parshall specifically cites Apple, Google and Facebook. “How can we insure … freedom of religious speech without jeopardizing at the same time the fundamentally important free market right of private media companies to decide their own policies?” he asks in the release.

Parshall expects a panel that will include FCC Commissioner Robert McDowell; Ryan Anderson, William E. Simon Fellow in Religion and a Free Society at the Heritage Foundation; and NRB member Kelly Shackelford, president and CEO of the Liberty Institute.
