Judges Say Football Coach Suspended For Praying Isn’t Protected By Constitution (VIDEO)

A panel of federal judges has ruled that a football coach who bowed his head in prayer after a game isn’t protected by the U.S. Constitution.

They said that a high school could suspend him for praying.

The Washington Examiner reported: 

A federal appeals court on Wednesday ruled against a high school football coach who was suspended for kneeling in prayer after games, saying it was unlikely the coach could show that a school district in Washington state violated his constitutional rights.

A three-judge panel of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals said Wednesday that the coach “took advantage of his position to press his particular views upon the impressionable and captive minds before him.”

“We hold that [Coach Joseph] Kennedy spoke as a public employee when he kneeled and prayed on the 50-yard line immediately after games while in view of students and parents,” wrote Judge Milan D. Smith for the panel opinion of the western federal appeals court.

Commentator Lawrence B. Jones says this is wrong:

From the video:

Lawrence B. Jones: “I’m not sure we’re prepared for the consequences of eliminating God out of every single thing that we do today. I think there’s going to be severe consequences for that and it’s concerning that now schools are taking it a step further and saying you can’t even do it at a football game!”

Liberals have no idea what they’re doing!
