Supreme Court Denies Review to Football Coach Fired for Praying After Games

Supreme Court. CEDIT: Mark Thomas

(From The Washington Free Beacon)

The Supreme Court decided not to consider an appeal from a high school football coach who was fired for praying at the 50-yard line after games. Joseph Kennedy, who coached at Bremerton High School in Washington before being fired in 2015, argued his First Amendment rights had been violated by the school district.

Kennedy began praying after games in 2008, when he “took a knee and silently thanked God for his players” after his first game, according to a case history published by his legal counsel, the nonprofit First Liberty Institute.
