Liberty Counsel will be premiering its new faith-based, family-friendly film titled Uncommon on Saturday at Thomas Road Baptist Church in Lynchburg, Va. General admission is free, and tickets are available online.
The film Uncommon is a feature-length, narrative motion picture that highlights the struggles of a group of students at fictional Rosewood High School, starring Erik Estrada (CHiPs), Ben Davies (Courageous), Irma P. Hall (Soul Food), and Grammy Award-winning Christian musician Jason Crabb. Playing himself in the movie as the students’ attorney is Mat Staver, Liberty Counsel’s founder and chairman.
Fighting overwhelming challenges, the teens struggle against political correctness to defend their privilege to worship, meet and perform. Will months of constant bullying by the establishment defeat the production and dismantle their faith? Armed with expert legal counsel, these teens realize what it means to be uncommon.
Uncommon, produced by JC Films in association with Liberty Counsel, explores the issues surrounding religious liberties in public schools and examines specific questions, such as: Can students pray aloud in their schools? Can students conduct their own Bible studies on school grounds? Can they mention God or wear Christian-themed clothing at their schools?
“Students are clearly protected by the Constitution while on public school campuses, and they may exercise their religious and free speech rights by sharing their faith with other students. These liberties are important rights which must be exercised and protected,” said Mat Staver.
