Professor Barry McDonald Interviewed in "Level Praying Field" -- World Radio Legal Docket Podcast
Professor Barry P. McDonald is interviewed on the World Radio Legal Docket podcast episode "Level Praying Field." The episode considers the recent Supreme Court case, Kennedy v. Bremerton School District.
From Legal Docket "Level Praying Field"
Kennedy v. Bremerton School District: Joe Kennedy was a football coach for Bremerton School District, a public school in Washington. He had a practice of praying on the 50-yard-line at the end of each game, sometimes with students. He also held pre-game locker room prayers with players and spoke about faith in motivational talks. When the school learned of his practices, it feared those practices violated the First Amendment’s establishment clause. Kennedy stopped his locker room prayers and religious references in talks, but continued his midfield prayers. When he lost his job for that, he sued, claiming the school violated his First Amendment rights of free speech and freedom of religion.
