Another day, another terrible take from the writers at Teen Vogue. As usual, the writers manipulate their young audience to believe that things that are good for them are bad. This time, it's about prayer.
Teen Vogue writer Mary Reta is enraged there will be more prayers in school.
Reta discusses the effects of SCOTUS ruling, in Kennedy v. Bremerton School District, that a high school football coach has the right to pray on the football field. Nothing wrong with a coach and his team giving thanks to God after a game, right? Not according to Reta, who laments the destruction of the “separation of church and state.”
Reta consults a left-wing law professors.about the terrible consequences of letting a coach pray after a game. “This is going to lead to much more prayer in public schools,” UVA Law’s Micah Schwartzman states. “With three justices appointed by President Trump, that Supreme Court now has a deeply conservative majority, and one of its main goals is demolishing the separation of church and state.”
Strangely, a law professor is upset that this Court decision will destroy something that does not exist. The utter state of our nation’s law schools!
“The Court’s decision in Bremerton is part of that larger project,” Schwartzman continues. “A lot of kids are going to be pressured by their coaches and teachers into participating in religious practices that they don’t agree with, and the conservative justices aren’t concerned about that.” Possibly, but it didn’t happen in the Bremerton case.
Reta and Schwartzman continue to fearmonger about the results of this decision.
“I think we’re likely to see more legislation that imposes the views of religious majorities, at least at the level of local and state governments,” says Schwartzman, “In short, under this Court, there will be more government support and solicitude for the beliefs and practices of religious conservatives at the expense of the rights and freedoms of others.” Did she not read Justice Gorsuch's opinion that this ruling applies to all religions? Is she not a law professor?
If this were the case with Muslim or Jewish prayer, these leftists would not be up in arms. This article is part of Teen Vogue’s crusade against living a good and virtuous life.
