Another Win for Religious Liberty!

In yet another win for religious liberty on Monday, June 27, the Supreme Court issued a 6-3 ruling that former Bremerton, Washington High School assistant football coach Joseph Kennedy was exercising his First Amendment rights while praying with his players at the 50-yard line after games.

In a particularly pointed rebuke, Justice Neil Gorsuch, writing for the majority said, "Both the Free Exercise and Free Speech Clauses of the First Amendment protect expressions like Mr. Kennedy's. Nor does a proper understanding of the Amendment's Establishment Clause require the government to single out private religious speech for special disfavor.

The Constitution and the best of our traditions counsel mutual respect and tolerance, not censorship and suppression, for religious and nonreligious views alike." To which we at the Dr. James Dobson Family Institute say: “Amen and thank you, Justice Gorsuch!”
