The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, arguably the most liberal and misguided federal court in the country, has issued a ruling that justifies the punishment of coaches for praying on public school football fields. The big reason? Because parents and teachers can see them doing so and therefore it’s a violation not protected under the U.S. Constitution.
A Washington state high school football coach who was punished for taking a knee at the 50-yard line for a post-game prayer violated the U.S. Constitution, according to the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.
A three-judge panel ruled the Bremerton School District was justified in suspending Coach Joe Kennedy after he took a knee and prayed silently at midfield after football games.
As you can imagine, there are some unhappy people out there…

The troubling thing isn't the court decision, it's the fact that his employer sought to stop him in the first place.

Is this real? Is it just a joke? How can the government make it illegal to pray? Muslims are allowed to close streets to do their prayers.

Praying before a football game isn’t allowed now according to the Orwellian left.
You gotta think this one will end up at the Supreme Court.
