U.S. Supreme Court endorses football coach's on-field prayers

Summary by Ground News
The U.S. Supreme Court ruled Monday that a public school district violated the First Amendment by suspending a football coach who insisted on praying at midfield right after games. The 6-3 decision is a victory for those who seek a larger role for prayers and religion in the public schools. The court stressed that Coach Joe Kennedy's prayers began as private and personal expression and were not official acts of promoting religion at school. Kennedy argued that banning his prayers violated his right to free speech.
