STATEMENT: Andy Gould on the Supreme Court Ruling against the Washington School District Violating First Amendment Rights

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: June 27th, 2022

ANOTHER VICTORY FOR RELIGIOUS FREEDOM!

The United States Supreme Court today ruled that a Washington school district violated the First Amendment rights of high school football coach Joe Kennedy when he was suspended for praying after games. As the majority opinion states, the Constitution never gave the government the right to be hostile to religion. As it should, this ruling will allow Americans greater freedom to express their religious views in public. The Court has struck a blow to censorship and intolerance in public discourse. I applaud the Justices for their consistency in protecting the First Amendment rights of all Americans. As your next Attorney General, I will be your champion for free speech and religious freedom.
