Supreme Court rules in favor of high school coach who was fired for praying after football games

The Supreme Court has sided with a former Seattle-area football coach when it ruled that Joseph Kennedy, who was fired by the Bremerton School District, had the right to pray after football games.

The decision is a massive victory for religious freedom and marks another decision by the Supreme Court that is pushing back against the left’s erosion of religious liberty.

The court ruled 6-3 in favor of Kennedy and Justice Neil Gorsuch, who authored the majority opinion, explained that “The Constitution and the best of our traditions counsel mutual respect and tolerance, not censorship and suppression, for religious and nonreligious views alike.”

Reversing the progressive wave

The progressive leftists in the United States have been eroding religious freedom for decades. The Supreme Court’s decision is a much-needed rebuttal to the leftist agenda that has ruled unchecked for years.

The Supreme Court rejected the argument that Kennedy’s position as the coach of the team made him a “mouthpiece” for the publicly funded school.

Therefore, the decision to fire Kennedy directly impinged on his right to free expression and the free exercise of religion.

Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito dismantled the school district’s argument saying, “When Coach Kennedy went out to the center of the field … all he did was to wave a Ukrainian flag. Would you have fired him?”

The school district would never do such a thing and as such the Supreme Court rightly decided that Kennedy’s first amendment rights had been violated.

The Supreme Court is on a mission to reverse the damage that progressive thinking has done to our nation. One decision at a time our Constitutional freedoms are being restored.

Leftists furious

The decision by the Supreme Court predictably incited a wave of rage from seething leftists who are still grappling with the court’s reversal of Roe v. Wade.

The ACLU reacted to the decision by tweeting, “Today, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of a public school football coach who prayed with his players after games. This is a serious blow to the long-held principle that students have the religious liberty right to be free from school-sponsored prayer.”

The typical blue-check brigade was less than thrilled that the Supreme Court sided with religious liberty over enforced secularism but that is no surprise considering what we have seen over the past two years. The only question left is what is the Supreme Court’s next target in its fight against the cancer of progressivism.
