In a 6-3 decision vote, the Supreme Court delivered a remarkable victory for religious liberty.
Although if we look back on traditional American values, that’s a thing we should’ve had by default, so what gives?
Well, as it turns out, a high school football coach from the Bremerton School District in Washington was fired for issuing a prayer on the 50-yard line during a break in the match.
This didn’t exactly sit right with the school’s “progressive” administration.
The Left’s disdain for white Christian males
Naturally, Joseph Kennedy, the coach in question, immediately filed a petition to the court, arguing his religious rights were infringed upon.
With God’s help, he got the victory not only for himself, but for tens of thousands of other Americans publicly exhibiting their religious freedoms.
The justice who piloted the decision was Neil Gorsuch, who stated one’s engagement in personal religious observance is protected from the government’s reprisal by the Free Speech and Free Exercise 1st Amendment Clauses.

Additionally, the Constitution, at no point, mandates or permits the state’s government to carry out such acts of suppressing an individual’s religious freedoms and expression.
Aside from possibly taking a minute or two out of a high school league football game, Kennedy’s actions weren’t hurting anyone.
It’s clear as day that had the roles been reversed, the radical left would’ve jumped on the case like there’s no tomorrow.
Four victories for religious expression, 1st Amendment
Fortunately, there’s still a semblance of traditional US values and traditions left in the judicial system. They allowed Kennedy to win this case that would’ve otherwise been an uphill battle in a blue state like Washington.
In the last 4 days the Supreme Court has:
Ruled that you don't need a special reason to apply for Concealed Carry permit
Repealed Roe vWade, saving Countless babies from Abortion
Ruled that Praying in School is ok

Religious expression is one of the pins holding this country together, allowing us to remain the beacon of freedom and diversity that the US has always advertised as being.
If a governmental entity had been allowed to suppress Kennedy’s religious observance, it would all be for naught.
Gorsuch then reiterated that the Constitution in no way allows for discrimination on those grounds, ruling in favor of Mr. Kennedy without the need for a trial.
The Kennedy v. Bremerton School District has been the Supreme Court’s 4th religious rights victory during their nine-month term.
It was only last week the court pushed for strengthening parental rights to the usage of public funds as a means of sending their children to religious schools.
The Supreme Court has JUST decided in favor of religious liberty, with a 6-3 decision over a case of the football coach FIRED for praying after football games.
We filed a brief in this important case, and celebrate this major victory for prayer.

The remaining two cases included a ruling allowing ministers to play an active role during executions and permission for a Christian group to fly their flag above Boston City Hall.
Although Kennedy’s victory was celebrated by religious rights advocates, it was frowned upon by the left, which based its reasoning on an ancient 1962 ruling that forbade teacher-led prayer in public schools.
