In 1992, the Grossmont Union High School District of La Mesa, CA (in Hunter's congressional district) told the Christian Clubs that had been meeting on the campuses for years that they can no longer meet on school grounds, citing "Seperation of Church and State", even though no such law exists.
The students who led the clubs from the various schools scheduled to meet together to see what could be done. One called the congressman to ask what could be done.
The congressmen flew an ACLU lawyer out to defend the students, citing the "Equal Right Act" that he had recently pushed through congress. This act states that a school can not descriminate against a peaceful student organization based on religion, sexual preference, sex, race or political affiliation. It states that if any non-curricular student group is allowed to meet, so must religious/political/etc groups under the same rules/ In other words, to ban the Christian club from peacable meetings on campus, they would have to ban the Spirit Club, the Key Club, the Math Club and so on - any that were not part of the specific school curriculum.
The press did not like Hunter helping the students out much, but the ACLU lawyer flew out, showed up at the student meeting, and the press covered the meeting where for the first time in the more than 100 years of the district history, students representing every school met together.
The following day, the district superintendant issued a statement saying it was all a big misunderstanding, and he did not know where all the principles got the idea to ban the student clubs.
In under two weeks, the issue was resolved, thanks to the thoughtful work of Congressman Duncan Hunter.
Many would not have lifted a finger or gotten involved, since Christianity is not popular among the media right now.
