Yes Coach, I’ll Stand With You!
Thank you for your dedication to your faith, for your commitment to the positive education of our youth, for your military service, and for your courageous stance in protecting religious liberty rights for teachers and administrators.
I firmly believe that The First Amendment protects your right to kneel for a private prayer.
I am shocked that Bremerton High School suspended you, and denied your request to continue your wholesome practice of giving thanks after football games.
I believe the Bremerton School District’s actions violate the law and send the wrong message to coaches, young people, our communities, and our nation — a message of hostility to religious freedom and intolerance toward personal religious expression.
I fully support you and your lawsuit. Please know that you are not alone in this difficult time. Our schools need more coaches like you, our country needs more citizens like you, and our world needs more people like you.
