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

55% Center coverage: 228 sources
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.See the Story

NATO will significantly increase the number of forces on high alert to over 300,000 from 40,000. NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg also confirmed that allies will expand troop deployments in NATO countries that sit closest to Russia. NATO will also change its language on Russia that in the alliance's last strategy from 2010 was still described as a strategic partner. "I expect that allies will state clearly that Russia poses a direct threat to our security," Stoltenberg said. The decisions will be set out at a landmark summit of the 30-member NATO alliance this week.See the Story
