Democrats have been attempting to completely stamp out religion from American society.
They are only hostile toward the religious.
But the Supreme Court made one ruling that had a Christian coach smiling.
High school football coach Joe Kennedy got some good news after the Supreme Court ruled that he was allowed to pray after games.
Kennedy was fired by a high school in Washington State because he prayed after games, and some of the kids on both teams joined him.
The prayer was not compulsory; the kids joined in on their own.
Yet the case reached the Supreme Court, which decided in favor of the coach.
SCOTUS blog wrote:
“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.”
Liberals tried to argue that the coach praying on the field created a coercive environment for high school kids, which is a dangerous argument for religious liberty.
Justice Sonia Sotomayor argued in her dissent that public prayer on public grounds threatens the separation of church and state, which is absurd.
There is a difference between prayer on public grounds and forming a state religion.
Liberal journalist Greg Bishop wrote in Sports Illustrated:
“To his legal opposition, Kennedy’s covenant, however intended, was coercive, delivering a powerful message to teenagers who wanted to play and coveted their coaches’ approval. Some might have participated to curry favor or join ‘us’ rather than ‘them.’ One brief in the SCOTUS docket is from psychologists who argue there’s a fragility to adolescent minds.”
This is an amazing argument considering leftists are so eager to introduce kids to radical concepts like Drag Queen Story Hour and discussions about sexual orientation and gender identity.
After the ruling, Coach Kennedy said, “I don’t even know how to put it into words…They should give me a day off to think about it and process it all…It is just incredible to know that I did nothing wrong. Everything I did was fine…And that the First Amendment is fine and well for everyone.”
The so-called defenders of democracy on the left are stewing over the decision.
Some have tried to argue that the Supreme Court would have ruled differently if the coach had been Muslim.
People who believe in religious liberty would not have had a problem with that, and the liberal media certainly would not have demonized the coach for praying.
The left-wing radical secularists only go after soft targets.
They would have never targeted a Muslim bakery to prepare a custom cake or a gay wedding.
Religious liberty scored an important victory, but it just goes to show how tenuous freedoms can be.
If Hillary Clinton had won in 2016, gun rights would be under severe threat, COVID vaccines would be mandatory for employment at most companies, and religion would be close to being stamped out of public life.
