Justice Alito tells graduates to defend free speech and religion

by ian

It looks like more conservative commencement speakers feel the urgency to speak to the next generation about timeless issues.

Justice Samuel Alito is the latest to give a graduation speech with a warning: defend free speech and religious liberty.

He gave that speech recently in Ohio at Franciscan University. He added, “Our legal system is built on the premise that it is possible for fair and open-minded people to solve their problems by reasoning together–by a process of rational and respectful argumentation. I hope you will take that approach in your lives.”

Alito helped overturn Roe v. Wade in 2022. Graduates at Franciscan University welcomed the justice with a standing ovation for his accomplishments.
