BREAKING: Supreme Court Sides With High School Coach Over 50-Yard-Line Prayers


The Supreme Court on Monday ruled in favor of a Washington state football coach who was suspended over his on-field prayers following games.

The justices’ decision, largely breaking 6-3 along the court’s usual ideological lines, found that the school system infringed the coach’s religious freedom and freedom of speech rights by seeking to block him from engaging in public prayers on the field while flanked by student athletes after games.

The religious liberty case was filed by Joseph Kennedy, a high school assistant football coach who was placed on administrative leave by Bremerton School District in 2015 after refusing to stop kneeling to pray audibly at the 50 yard line after his team’s games.

Kennedy and religious freedom advocates argued the coach was exercising his First Amendment right to pray. But the school district told the justices that Kennedy’s actions were coercive, and players’ parents complained their children on the team felt compelled to participate.

  1. This was an easy one. Too bad these same Judges didn’t have the courage to hear any of the cases brought to expose the 2020 Election Fraud.

  2. …nice.

    But at the end of the day, it doesn’t matter what they say.

    “28 Saying, Did not we straitly command you that ye should not teach in this name? and, behold, ye have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine, and intend to bring this man’s blood upon us.

    29 Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.”
    Acts 5:28-29

  3. Anyone else not tired of winning yet? You give us President Trump, tanned, rested and ready for action w/o that Goddamned rodent Paul Ryan’s obstruction in 2024 and fully aware of what he is up against going in and it’s Katie bar the door.

    Are you ready to rumble? I am. By that time Elon Musk will have the Twitter problem sorted out and the Trump Train will be armor plated.

  4. Kids enrolled grandchildren in Christian Grade School, Bremerton. First grader told mom they learned that white cops shoot blacks for no reason. DIL confronted Administration. Administration backed up teacher. In Bremerton, a Navy town.

  5. Robert’s and the three dimwits better figure out that there are five or six who are not afraid to show they have the courage of their convictions. They don’t give a tinker’s damn about precious precedent that was slipped in to the Constitution by a bunch of charlatans in black robes. You bet your ass they feel that it is they who have been wronged when the usurpation they pointed to as “settled” for all time was recognized for what it was.

    Dig this. In the 1980’s my dad had a bookkeeper embezzle north of 3/4 big, was caught, tried and sentenced to prison. The sonsabitch relatives complained to the press that since she was going to prison that she doesn’t owe restitution. WTF is up with that? It was like they were saying “she stole it fair and square and since she’s going to jail she doesn’t have to give it back.” In their fucked up world, once they get anything in their possession, it doesn’t matter how they got it. It’s theirs and nobody has any business taking it from them.

    It appears that the SCOTUS has a critical mass of judges who are fed up with that kind of nonsense and Thomas and Alito are writing decisions that will frustrate these same tactics in the future.

  6. So 3 judges don’t give a flying rat”s butt about the Constitution.
    Next time a Dirty Dem Commie gets a case heard I bet the claim constitutional rights matter.

    Good week for for our side eh?

  7. I just spotted a couple pussy hatters out for their morning virtue signal. Got a sick kid today and have been working in the yard all morning. They were looking a little rough, like they have been on a three day box wine bender.

  8. I’m thinking SCOTUS is going a long ways in getting Trump back in office. Now we just need to stop the big cheat. Because it’s coming.

  9. Prayer wins again. Imagine that, going to the Supreme Court to rule that freedom to pray is allowed. We’re winning….are the tides changing?

  11. If Ketanji Brown Jackson hasn’t figured out what a woman is, she should recuse herself from these cases.

  12. I was not raised in a religious family, but a mostly moral one. My high school wrestling coach would always have us sit in a circle and say our father before every match. It wasn’t forced, and I didn’t know it at first. After a couple of times hearing it I had it memorized it and enjoyed participating.It really took the edge off worrying about the upcoming match. Still don’t go to church, but consider myself a Christian and don’t think that hearing positive messages regardless of religious beliefs hurts anyone at all.
