The First Amendment to the US Constitution provides the jurisprudence on the separation of church and state.
In fact, Thomas Jefferson called it “the great wall of separation between Church and State.” So there is no ambiguity on the intent of the Constitutional intent on the religious freedom and the secular government. But . . .
Yesterday, the US Supreme Court endorsed a public high school employee to lead prayers on the football field after the games. The decision by the 6-3 conservative majority seems more political than just.
What is anybody who is an atheist or of some other religion supposed to do or feel after the football game? I don’t know if the USSC is intentionally chipping away at that “wall of separation” between church and state. I hope not.
What’s your take on the Supreme Court’s decision?
