Religious freedom is a foundational principle for the USA. Constitutional interpretation of that right of freedom of expression is monumental. Tebow was condemned for yrs for praying on the field, lost QB opps for that reason. Christian religious persecution is rampant & . SCOTUS defended. Awesome!

Your point about Christian prosecution by the left and their minions is absolutely true. It needs to be called out and defended against at every opportunity. The silent majority can be silent no longer. Good people have been silent and done nothing for far too long. We need to fight back now.

I'm glad this man stood up and won his case. He wasn't demanding or even asking his students/players to join him. He wasn't pushing his religious beliefs down anyone's throats.

It not only should be allowed. The SCOTUS just ruled it was protected. So yes, it IS allowed. Case closed.

If they allow this, they will soon allow Drag Queen Story Time for K through grade 3. There used to be be 26 letters in the alphabet, now there are 62 genders in the alphabet. That is just another religion.

As long as players and staff are not expected to take part if they don't want to. Religious freedom works both ways. If anyone is forced to 'pray' there's a problem.

Prayer should not be coerced. If one or more people want to join someone in praying, that's their right.

No one said coerced, just being allowed, so I am sure you’re allowed not to if you choose.

This is a constitution defended right. He is not establishing a religion for the school nor forcing participation. That is simply the free exercise guaranteed by the constitution. It's insane that this wasn't a unanimous decision! Free exercise is being trampled on, crazy it went this far!

Silent prayer at school is different than the government establishing religion. Libs sure are losing in court a lot these days: RvW, NY gun laws, NY City vote for illegal aliens, and now prayer in school. Trump packing the courts with conservative judges will bear fruit for decades to come. FJB

I can't wait to start my satanic worship group at the next school sponsored sporting event. Prayer ain't just for Christians you know? While we're at it, let's give space to our Muslim brothers and sisters for their prayer. This is great!

In a public school, there are various religious groups in one building. If there was a teacher or coach praying in front of their student there is a major possibility that that teacher or coach will shove their religious beliefs down another students throat. It’s fine to pray on their own time.

Because they are following what the constitution reads, not what they think it should say. Which previous courts have done. The Supreme Court cannot write laws they can only rule on the laws.

When the Supreme overturns established rulings, it loses all creditability.

Of course. Why not? Freedom of religion, not freedom from religion.

What a stupid question. Who could oppose allowing "coaches...to pray at games", or anywhere else? But, should coaches, or anyone else, be "allowed" to coerce anyone to pray anywhere? You fail, again.

What ever happened to the separation of church and state? I'm so sick of the religious right dictating our laws.

Today's Supreme Court religio-extremists have ruled otherwise, but a founder, namely Jefferson, desired a "wall of separation between Church and State." He produced a version that excludes all miracles by Jesus and most mentions of the supernatural, including the resurrection.
