Storyboard Text

  • Jesse Cantwell with two of his family members went to a Catholic neighborhood to bring a message of their reiligon to them  because they believed it was their duty to do so. 
  • Cantwell saw two Catholic men and stopped them to listen to a record they had . The men agreed to listen when they heard it they got mad because the record that Cantwell played was an anti-catholic message. 
  • The Cantwells´were arrested for solicitation without a permit and for inciting a breach of the peace
  • The supreme court overturned the case, ruling - 1.Connecticut could not require permits specifically for religious solicitation, and that  - 2. Cantwell had a First Amendment right to peacefully express his views
  • Because of this case States were now bound by the First Amendment’s limitation on government to interfere with free religious exercise. After the ruling, neither federal nor state governments could unduly infringe on the right to freely exercise religion without a compelling state interest
