Huge SCOTUS Ruling on Our Religious Liberties

🚨 This Supreme Court is the gift that keeps on giving. NEW this Monday morning...

More good news just moments ago from the Supreme Court – this time concerning our religious liberties. The case in question centers around a football coach who was fired from his job for praying at mid-field after games. The Court has just ruled such action by the school was a clear violation of the coach’s First Amendment rights.

This is EXCELLENT NEWS. Here’s a great summary of the case directly from this morning’s ruling:

“Joseph Kennedy lost his job as a high school football coach because he knelt at midfield after games to offer a quiet prayer of thanks. Mr. Kennedy prayed during a period when school employees were free to speak with a friend, call for a reservation at a restaurant, check email, or attend to other personal matters. He offered his prayers quietly while his students were otherwise occupied. Still, the Bremerton School District disciplined him anyway. It did so because it thought anything less could lead a reasonable observer to conclude (mistakenly) that it endorsed Mr. Kennedy’s religious beliefs. That reasoning was misguided.”

Today’s ruling went on to clearly state: “The Free Exercise and Free Speech Clauses of the First Amendment protect an individual engaging in a personal religious observance from government reprisal; the Constitution neither mandates nor permits the government to suppress such religious expression.”

We live in sad times that disciplinary action could be taken against someone for just praying in public. And it really makes you question those school bureaucrats who believe that – heaven forbid – if someone on their payroll were praying in public, that somehow meant the school endorsed such activity.

But today, thankfully, we have another OUTSTANDING decision by the Supreme Court to set things straight.
