  1. If he was a Muslim and prayed at one of three calls to pray hours there would've been (crickets). This isn't a case about prayer but an attack on religion and particularly Christianity. Apparently some students CHOSE to join him and that bothered some parents hostile to any semblance of religiosity, unless it's called "meditation" It'll be interesting ti see how the Justices rule. Thankfully, liberals don't have a majority. The country would be a cesspool of unbridled immorality.

  2. The coach was not promoting his religion. The students freely prayed with him. Most religions pray. Universal prayer. This country was founded on freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom to pray or not. I am retired military. In assembly's they prayed. If you're not religious, Agnostic, you would now your head in respect to other people's relegious beliefs. My son did so & he is Agnostic. Whereas I was raised Mormon, but with deciet & hypocrisy I left the church. I do practice the Universal religion & the Wiccan. I yo would now my head & pray my way, This is a time if silence in such a hectic & noisy world. There is nothing wrong with the coach praying. My youngest son's football coach did the same. It shows to my son a strong, leadership, as a man. Quite a few young men grow up without a father. My youngest was one. But he also had his eldest brother. But it's nice their is men at school that can show this. Not a transgender male teacher acting as if he is half his age, immature, and promoting his agenda. That I do not like. Because my son's know they can be anything. They can wear kilts, man buns, piercings, tats, makeup. They can be seamstress, secretary and dress nice too. You do not need to be transgender. 😱 I like this coach. We have the right to practice our religious beliefs while we are at work.

  3. Matthew 6:5 "And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. But when you pray, to into your room, close the door and pray to your father who is unseen".

    But the SCOTUS will find in favor of this "coach" and in favor of the religious right who want to IMPOSE their religion on everyone around them. Can you imagine how the religious right would react if an Islamic coach or a Jewish coach did this same thing??? Their heads would explode with the indignity of it. HYPOCRITES all of'em…

  4. Jesus taught, “When you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by men … but when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your father who is unseen.”
    Matthew 6:5-8
    Repent coach…

  5. 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,

  6. America – a nation that was once so great lead by great leaders who acknowledge the existence of God and made (Bible) the word of God as the foundation of your constitution is now being attacked by this new generations. Look what is written in the very first sentence of the Declaration of your Independence. Do you want to bring to court also your ancestors ? Very sad news……

  7. Our democracy is built on separation of church and state. That is the intelligent way to go. Christian kids are so mean to other kids. I couldn’t believe the strange verbal attacks on my kids.

  8. Every company I worked for, people gathered once a week for prayer & Bible Study. Typically done in one of the meeting rooms. Never heard that this was a problem.

    For a football coach to do this before or after a football game should not be any different than employees gathering to pray at their lunch break or any other time they choose.

    If this coach was making it mandatory to join him for prayer then the school has something to say about it, Otherwise, if this is done by choice, then why inhibit students from doing what they like to do. And if this helps the team, then it is Not right to prevent.

    Remember that we are ONE nation under God!!!
    Taking God out of it undermines the VERY ESSENCE of what America is all about.

    When our President says: God Bless America or God Bless our troops, this is a prayer. If this OK, and we know that it is, then why is it a problem for a coach to pray with his team?

  9. Then if this Christian can't pray then why do the force Black lives matter where every one is forced to stand on knee and that is OK. Why is Christians been prosecuted for praying. This world going so evil and we as true Christians had to take a stand.

  10. Sure you don't have to pray with the coach. You can also ride the bench for the entire season.

    No pressure…

  11. This is SAD…… I coached football for 13 years and we said the Lords player before and after every practice before and after every game. For that matter we had a short devotion with another team before we played. Coach Kennedy is more than to welcome come to Wilkes County NC and continue what he has been doing anytime.

  12. This is just beyond stupid, Christianity and high school football go hand in hand if you don't like get out of my country! As humans its our duty to give God His glory!

  13. If Islamic representatives in the house can wear Kashkha in support of their religion .. Why can't this man pray… This is just More of the far lefts agenda trying to beat down Christians.

  14. “And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. '
    — Matthew 6:5-6

  15. dont fear. Jesus Christs is here to flip flop the criminals to the righteous.usa is built on God w Trust.. not mexico iran russia china r anyother country. i stand w Jesus we win

  16. Religion has no role in public life. This supreme court is so debased that whatever they say from this point on will just be ignored by the masses. They are a right wing JOKE. NOTHING that comes out of a stacked court matters. You may as well not even report about their BS rulings anymore. This country was founded with the implicit division between church and state. No one wants to hear you pray. No one wants their rights taken away because of your faith. You are all turning into HILTER"S STORM TROOPERS. I hope the military steps in and puts an end to all of your nonsense and give us real liberty back. A liberty to choose our own paths. And not be subjected to some bible thumping Hypocritical Christains that break everyone one of the ten commandments before breakfast every day. I do not want to hear about anyone's religion and I do not want my children exposed to your poisonous hateful rhetoric. The supreme court rulings mean nothing anymore. No one will listen to the court of the RIGHT WING NAZI"S
