State Dept.: Murdering, Enslaving Someone for Their Religion Most ‘Egregious Form of Discrimination’ Lawsuit For Praying Coach Seeks Job Restored, Right to Pray?

Lawyers for a Washington state high school football coach, who was fired for praying after games, have filed suit to get his coaching jobs back and are asking the court to rule that his postgame prayers are allowed.
The First Liberty Institute filed the lawsuit Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Tacoma. It seeks to have Joe Kennedy restored to his positions as an assistant football coach at the Bremerton High School (BSD) varsity team and head coach of the junior varsity team, saying his religious rights were violated.
“BSD’s (Bremerton School District) revised directive which purports to ban any ‘demonstrative religious activity’ that is ‘readily observable’ to students or members of the public, is baldly unconstitutional,” the suit claims.
Since 2008, Kennedy had prayed before and after games, and was sometimes joined by students.
