Supreme Court Rules In Favor Of Praying High School Football Coach

Back in 2008, High School football coach Joseph Kennedy began praying after games.
Many began to join him in this prayer, including those on the other team. The school attempted to stop him from doing it seven years later so he sued after being placed on administrative leave.

From The Hill:
Starting in 2008, Kennedy began kneeling on the school football field after games where he would engage in brief prayer. Eventually, many of his players joined him, as did members of opposing teams. This continued without formal complaint for seven years until the school told Kennedy to stop.
The coach went on to defy the school’s order and was placed on administrative leave. He later filed a lawsuit, alleging the school violated his First Amendment speech and religious rights in disciplining him for what he depicted as a form of private religious expression.
The Supreme Court just ruled in favor of Kennedy in a 6-3 ruling.

SCOTUS sides with a high school football coach in a First Amendment case about prayer at the 50-yard-line. In a 6-3 ruling, SCOTUS says the public school district violated the coach's free speech and free exercise rights when it barred him from praying on the field after games.


Here is the opinion from Neil Gorsuch in Kennedy v. Bremerton School District:…. Sonia Sotomayor dissents, joined by Stephen Breyer and Elena Kagan.
