A high school football coach suspended by a Washington State school district for praying on public property before and after games has filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
Coach Joe Kennedy filed the EEOC complaint against Bremerton School District charging them with religious discrimination for refusing to let him pray on the football field after games.
“BSD violated my rights to free exercise of religion and free speech by prohibiting my private religious expression and taking adverse employment action against me on the basis of my religion,” stated Kennedy in the complaint.
“Moreover, BSD does not uniformly or consistently enforce its discriminatory policy. I have observed other BSD employees engage in visible religious expression without adverse consequences.”
