Back in April, I brought to you the story of the football coach who was fired for praying with his students after football games. No one was forced to partake, it was completely voluntary. Still, Disney and its subsidiaries were opposed. They are OK with trannies, fags, and pedophiles molesting and grooming children, but not to pray with them. The case made it to SCOTUS.
Today, SCOTUS released their decision.
At issue was whether a public school employee praying alone but in view of students was engaging in unprotected “government speech,” and if it is not government speech, does it still pose a problem under the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause. The Supreme Court ruled Monday in a 6-3 decision that the answer to both questions is no.
In full disclosure, I am an atheist. With that being said, I still share more values with religious people than with those who don’t believe in religion.
I don’t think that the government should be involved in marriage at all. Why should I need a permit to be married? It is either a religious ceremony, or a civil contract. In either case, the government doesn’t need to be involved in licensing it. That avoids the issue of interracial marriage, gay marriage, etc.
If a coach wants to pray, he should be permitted to do so. If some of his charges want to pray with him, fine. If others don’t, that is fine too. As long as you can’t prove any favoritism then it isn’t anyone’s business.
