"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances".
The First Amendment to our Constitution is a cornerstone that our founders put in place to avoid religious scrutiny and persecution. It protects freedom OF religion, not FROM religion. No where in this amendment does it say who is allowed pray, where one is allowed to pray, or how one is allowed to pray. It simply states that Congress shall make no law endorsing one religion over another, and that NO ONE shall be prohibited from FREELY exercising their right to express their religious beliefs. This includes coaches staff and players on a football field.
I once thought that this issue would never reach my little neck of the woods. I was wrong. One of our high school football coaches has fallen victim to this ridiculousness.
The Freedom From Religion Foundation have been a thorn in the side of believers for a very long time. They constitute only a minuscule fraction of our total population, yet continue to successfully target those they don't agree with theologically. This must stop.
A simple read through of our Constitution and Bill of rights will show that a coach who willfully prays with other willing participants is not, in any way, shape or form violating the Constitutional rights of others. The fact that a panel of three judges sided with the FFRF, in fact, violates the rights of these coaches and players.
I ask, no I demand, that those individuals who have the moral fortitude to fight for what's right, do so with the utmost urgency.
