Praying Coach Vindicated

By | March 23, 2023 | 0 Comments

Seven years ago, high school football coach Joe Kennedy was fired for praying on the field with his players. Reportedly there was no coercion, though of course teammates do things as a team. The coach refused to stop and was fired. The US Supreme Court took the religious liberty case and just decided for the coach, restoring his job and upholding his $2M award. The First Amendment is alive – not well, but alive. Let’s work to keep it that way.

Do you imagine, just possibly, that the Court might restore the brief, nonsectarian Regents Prayer at the start of school days? A prior Court outlawed it in 1962. Might that set the tone for a less violent, more respectful school day? Worth a try? After all, what is the greater danger: that our kids’ heads will be filled with a brief prayer, or with leftist propaganda?

• “Almighty God, we acknowledge our dependence upon Thee, and we beg Thy blessings upon us, our parents, our teachers and our country.”
