(Washington, D.C.) - The U.S. Supreme Court posted another victory for conservatives this week.
On Monday the high court ruled in favor of a high school football coach who led his team in prayer during games. The coach was put on leave by his Washington state school district when he refused to stop.
On Monday, the court ruled 6-3 in favor of his First Amendment rights.
In the majority opinion, Justice Neil Gorsuch wrote that the Constitution stands for mutual respect and tolerance, not censorship and suppression of personal views.
Dissenting judges Sonia Sotomayor, Stephen Breyer, and Elena Kagan argued that allowing prayer in school activities entangles church and state.
Interestingly, three of the Supreme Court justices attended public high schools, while the rest attended Catholic schools.
