The Sante Fe Case
Dear Lord, We pray for this game....
HEY YOU CAN'T PRAY OUT LOUD LIKE THAT!
This is case number 2, the Santa Fe case. This deals with freedom of religious practice in public.
We have decided to side with the audience members.
Before a football game in Santa Fe (In the Santa Fe School District), the players prayed over the loud speaker for all the audience to hear.
They also declared the school's policy on pryaing as unconstitutional.
This angered many audience members and they called it offensive. They this case to court.
The Supreme Court decided to side with the audience members. You can only practice your religion (pray, worship, etc.) in private. This ensures that you don’t offend anybody.
Due to the fact that it was a school sponsored game, The Supreme Court declared the act as 'coercive' because they forcefully made students participate in a religious practice.
This affects me because as a Christian I must now be aware of what I can and cannot do outside of church or my house. To be safe, I shouldn't do any religious rituals or practices in public.
