Christian Coach Suspended, Buddhist Coach Continues Prayers

(1 min Audio Report – Freedom’s Call)

Football Coach Joseph Kennedy has been suspended because he prays after the football games in view of his students, a practice that he has been doing since 2008.

The Bremerton High School told him to stop or face punishment, but he kept praying.

What’s unique about this situation is that there is a second offensive coach coordinator at the same school, for the same team, who also prays after games.

This second coach has not been suspended; his faith is Buddhism.

We join with those who are fighting for religious freedom and stand with this coach on this issue.
