    Default Football Coach Fired For Praying With Team Turns Tables on School District

    Coach Joe Kennedy, you may remember, is the bold high school football coach in Bremerton, Washington who refused to give up his prayer time with his team, despite enormous pressure from the school district. Kennedy bowed his head to praise God after every game for seven years. After some time, the Bremerton superintendent said his prayers violated the First Amendmentís Establishment Clause and told him to cease the practice immediately. His decision to continue the practice got him fired.


    Now, Kennedy is fighting back with a lawsuit against the school district. He is not seeking monetary compensation; he just wants his job back.

    I do hope Coach Kennedy gets his job back and continues to pray with his team!

    Praise God someone stands up for their beliefs. Praying for this coach and others who are finally standing up.
    Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. Matthew 10:32

    John 10:27-30 My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Fatherís hand. I and the Father are one.
