Yesterday, the Supreme Court handed down their Kennedy v. Bremerton School District ruling, which held that high school football coach Joseph Kennedy was well within his First Amendment rights to pray privately on the 50-yard line at games — and that other individuals are free to do the same. This was the correct decision, in our humble opinions.
But a lot of leftists have taken issue with it, and they’ve used actual disinformation to make their arguments. Take the Atlantic’s Jemele Hill, for example. She falsely claimed in a tweet that Coach Kennedy had pressured students to join him in prayer and also suggested — also falsely — that a Muslim coach would not be afforded the same First Amendment rights as Coach Kennedy.
The issue wasn’t about him praying, but that he was pressuring other students to join him. Please let a Muslim coach try this and see what happens. https://t.co/JyaRjQYIYa
