Freedom of speech on campus?

Should you have to pay to get a permit to share your faith on a public university campus? Is that a violation of freedom of speech?

I read an article about how a town in Mass. required the same thing at a public park. Christians filled suit and they had to drop the permit regulation because (obviously) it was in direct violation to the First Amendment.

To be honest, I think anyone or organization that tries to infringe upon someone's constitutional rights should be tried and convicted at the full force of the law. This kind of thing shouldn't just be a slap on the hand, or a mere fine. The people responsible should be tried, convicted, as if they just killed someone or robbed a bank.

Maybe I'm being too harsh, but these rights are foundational to our country and our history, the moment we lose the importance and value of that we have truly lost America.
