In August, I wrote about a Washington State high school football coach named Joe Kennedy who was fired for praying silently, after the game, on the field’s 50-yard-line.
At the time, I was incredulous.
As a former teenage boy who was once helped by a man in the mold of Coach Kennedy, I suggested we need more men like him.
Instead of firing him, school officials should be feting him!
In the months since I first spoke up in his defense, I’ve had the opportunity to get to know this good man personally. And so on today’s Focus on the Family program, you’ll get to hear directly from Joe Kennedy. John and I had the opportunity to talk with both Joe and his attorney, Kelly Shackelford.
You’ll also hear some insights from Alliance Defending Freedom attorney Kristen Waggoner. Ms. Waggoner discusses the upcoming December 5th Supreme Court oral arguments in which ADF will be defending Denver, Colorado, baker Jack Phillips of Masterpiece Cakeshop.
Both Coach Joe and Jack are fine Christian men who are being punished for standing by their Christian convictions.
