U.S. Supreme Court Refuses to Hear Case of Football Coach Prohibited from Bowing Head During Team's Pre-Game Prayer, Lets Stand Prayer Ban
WASHINGTON, DC - In a blow to athletic coaches across the country, the United States Supreme Court has refused to weigh in on the question of whether or not high school football coaches have a right to silently bow their heads as a sign of respect while their student players offer a pre-game prayer.

He needs to hold his head up and back slightly. then they’ll think he’s just stretching.
So much for “...nor prohibiting the free exercise thereof ...”.
I dion’t quite remember the definition of fascism, but that seem close enogh to me.
I’ve quit jobs for less. Even real, career like jobs.
He should claim that he’s bowing his head to the Obamessiah. Then it would be okay.
Americans are too easily bullied by those who are paper tigers in word and deed. The coach should continue just as he has and put the ball in their court. His players will not likely learn anything anymore important than one standing up for his/her beliefs and principles.
I agree completely. the fight never gets any easier the longer you wait. Eventually, the more we all just go along and give in,,, they will be at our door pounding in the middle of the night with fists clenched!
I have already prepared myself for being fired from my job. There are certain things I will not do and certain things I will not remain silent on. I speak my mind as it is.
I really do not care anymore. We all have to pick out battles,,, but sometimes the battles are just thrust upon us as well. There just isn’t any where else to run and hide.
Gee I hope someone takes down this painting of George Washington. I’m sure it must be illegal now...
I hope he bows his head as he always did, then raise his chin up in a haughty fashion, and scratch his nose with his middle finger.
If he holds his hands up like Muslims do when they pray, they will all be too intimidated to say anything. It’s only Christian prayers that are prohibited.
He has a Constitutionally protected right to freely excercise his religion. So do his players.
Conitnue to bow your head, coach. What are they going to do, fire you for your religion? That’s illegal, you know.
End public schools.
Oh, G.W. is just trying to warm his hands, don’tcha know ;o)
I don't see that he is establishing a religion, but I do see the prohibition of the free exercise thereof by his adversaries.
This is probably the most mangled, liberal mauled part of the Constitution, next to the 2nd Amendment.
This amendment regarding religion was designed to prevent establishing a State religion, in which all others are illegal.
It still works today. Listen up Islam, and refer to the 2nd amendment if you have any questions.
Anyone who thinks SCOTUS is upholding our freedom, please weigh in.
I would put my hands together, close to my heart and look up.
Tell them all I was having chest pains.
