A former Bremerton High School Football Coach appealed his “termination” to the US Supreme Court after the 9th Circuit upheld it. At the heart of the case is the question of religious liberty and the free expression thereof.
While there has been much argument and debate over whether or not the Coach should have been “fired” or not, the case made its way to the halls of the Supreme Court, where it landed on the Conference table last Friday (January 18, 2019).
To the outrage of political conservatives and confusion of liberals, the Supreme Court declined to hear the case, allowing the 9th Circuits ruling in the matter to stand. Which means that the coach doesn’t get his preliminary injunction awarding him his job back.
From pundits to Talking Heads, political conservative outrage has poured out proclaiming a new front in the “War on Christianity” and so forth. Justice Alito’s comments have the political right shaking its fists and screeching as to how our culture has abandoned G-d and the Bible.
As usual, there is a missing piece here. It’s a matter of math. Subtraction to be exact.
Nine minus four equals….?
