CHRISTOPHER: THE COURT STILL HAS A HANDFUL OF CASES TO RULE ON, IN WHAT HAS BEEN ONE OF THE MOST HISTORIC TERMS ALREADY. A MAJOR FIRST AMENDMENT CASE COULD BE DECIDED ON MONDAY, KENNEDY V. BREMERTON SCHOOL DISTRICT. A WASHINGTON STATE FOOTBALL COACH WAS FIRED AFTER PRAYING ON THE 50 YARD LINE AFTER GAMES. JOE KENNEDY SAYS THE DISTRICT VIOLATED HIS FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION. >> I MADE A COMMITMENT WITH GOD THAT I’M GOING TO GIVE YOU THE GLORY AFTER THE GAME. I’M NOT GOING TO HIDE WHO I AM, HIDE MY FAITH.
