Supreme Court Hears Arguments On Sentence High School FB Coach - New Style Motorsport

WASHINGTON (AP) — A coach who crosses himself before a game. A teacher who reads the Bible aloud before the bell rings. A coach who hosts a Christian youth group after school at his home.

Supreme Court justices discussed all of those hypothetical scenarios Monday as they heard arguments about a former Washington state public high school football coach who wanted to kneel and pray on the field after games. The judges were struggling to balance the religious and free speech rights of teachers and coaches with the rights of students not to feel pressured to participate in religious practices.

The conservative majority of the court seemed to sympathize with the technician, while his three liberals were more skeptical. The result could strengthen the acceptability of some religious practices in public school settings.
