This past Monday the US Supreme Court heard the case of former coach Joe Kennedy, who was fired by Washington’s Bremerton School District in twenty-fifteen after he silently prayed on a school field after a football game. Lifesite news reports that what appeared to be sympathetic statements and questions from the Supreme Court’s conservative majority during the two-hour hearing indicate the court may side with Kennedy in its decision, anticipated by the end of June.
If praying on the fifty yard-line after a football game with students voluntarily joining constitutes the establishment of a religion, we’re in more trouble than we ever imagined. Hopefully the statements and line of questioning by the justices will be truly indicative of their final decision and religious freedom will prevail over a very twisted view of the First Amendment.
