Supreme Court Heard Arguments About Football Coach’s On-Field Prayer

Objectivity 4.2 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.9

The Supreme Court heard arguments on Monday in a case involving a high school football coach who was reprimanded for postgame prayers on the football field’s 50-yard line. He claims that his termination violated his free speech and religious freedom rights. The school district argues his prayers violated the constitution because he is a government official, and also because of the coercive effect it might have had on students to join him. The Supreme Court is set to decide before its term ends in June or July.
