He was hired to coach football not proselytize his religion at games where the crowd came to watch football and that is why he got fired. The school must give equal time to satanists, muslims and any other religion that desires a venue if he is allowed to pray for crowds at football games and I fully expect that is what will happen. You can kiss high school football goodbye when that takes hold. I think that is a good thing BTWFirst, consider the source. As usual, CNN deliberately misrepresents the case. That is what happens when you use Fake News by the Enemy of the People.
The Bremerton School District clearly violated the coach's free speech and free exercise inherent rights. The Ninth Circuit Court was completely wrong, again, as they have been more than 80% of the time. Taking a knee and reciting a prayer in the middle of the football field after the game is not the government attempting to establish a religion, therefore the coach's actions could not have violated the Establishment Clause. Therefore, by firing the coach they violated his First Amendment rights.
