  • Engel v. Vitale
  • Does school -sponsored prayer in public schools violate the establishment clause of the First Amendment?
  • Engel's Argument
  • I'm suing William Vitale because school-sponsored prayer violates the establishment clause because it's making religion a government establishment.
  • Well I think I have a right to openly practice religion with others.
  • Vitale's Argument
  • The majority opinion (Justice Black) ruled that school-sponsored prayer violated the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment.
  • The dissenting opinion (Justice Stewart) ruled that the Establishment Clause did not restrict all government involvement with religion.
