Court Rules Against Coach to Join Student-Led Prayer.

So much for the Free Exercise Clause.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Amendment I, Constitution of the United States.

Speaking of which, it seems clearer every day that the EU is in desperate need of a First Amendment. This just in from Paris: Brigitte Bardot on trial for Muslim slur. A free society requires honest, even offensive dialog to survive. Sadly too few people seem to realize this. I wish I had a dollar (well maybe a pound, the dollar's been taking a beating lately) for every time I've hear the demand that somebody be silenced in the name of "tolerance". More often than not the speaker has no sense of irony whatsoever.
