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.

Kennedy argued that banning his prayers violated his right to free speech.
