U.S. SENATE – U.S. Senator Steve Daines today issued the following statement after the Supreme Court announced its decision in Kennedy v. Bremerton School District to defend Americans’ First Amendment right to religious freedom in schools.
“America would not be known as the land of the free without our fundamental right to worship freely,” Daines said. “I’m glad to see the United States Supreme Court defend Coach Joseph Kennedy’s constitutional right to religious freedom and prayer. We must do everything we can to protect this freedom which allows all Americans to practice their faith without fear.”
Senator Daines has joined a number of amicus briefs in support of Coach Kennedy throughout litigation, most recently at the Supreme Court.
