LINK US bishops back high school football coach in Supreme Court prayer case | Crux

NEW YORK – The U.S. bishops’ conference had a friend-of-the-court brief filed on its behalf on March 2 in support of a former high school football coach who sued a school district after he lost his job in 2015 for refusing to stop kneeling and praying on the fifty-yard line after games.

Joseph Kennedy, the coach, eventually sued the Bremerton School District in Washington State in 2016 over its stance that he couldn’t continue his post-game ritual. The Supreme Court agreed to take up the case, Kennedy v. Bremerton School District on Jan. 14.

Nobody is denying anyone's right to pray. Hell, pray in public if you want. But not on the public's time and not as a public official.

My objection is that the prayer is forced on the players/students, as well as the public.
