Nicely the coach who stood up for righteousness has gained within the excessive courts! Perhaps not the best of excessive courts, however the Supreme Courtroom simply dominated in his favor 6-3 alongside ideological traces that the free train and free speech clauses of the First Modification defend a person partaking in non secular expression.
For those who bear in mind, Joseph Kennedy prayed on the sphere each recreation for seven years straight whereas teaching for a highschool in Washington State. It was not till September of 2015 when one other coach took offense to it and reported him.
The coach who didn’t prefer it although served as a catalyst to in the end value Kennedy his job. They declare he was fired for defying directives to finish his follow of praying on the sphere.
Kennedy selected to not reapply for his teaching place at Bremerton Excessive College and sued the district in August 2016 for violating his First Modification rights to free speech and free train of his religion.
Kennedy was positioned on paid administrative depart for praying on the fifty yard line and the athletic director really useful Kennedy not be re-hired.
Kennedy fought this for years. He saved being denied by the courts. He saved failing and eventually the Supreme Courtroom determined they might hear his case once more this week. After failing miserably for years, Kennedy and the Lord prevailed!
At present he gained within the Supreme Courtroom!
