US Supreme Court 'is acting in a way that no court has acted before'

On the heels of overturning Roe v. Wade, the US Supreme Court sided with a football coach from Washington state who sought to kneel and pray on the field after games. The court ruled 6-3 along ideological lines for the coach. The justices said the coach's prayer was protected by the First Amendment. The case forced the justices to wrestle with how to balance the religious and free speech rights of teachers and coaches with the rights of students not to feel pressured into participating in religious practices. For more analysis on the latest Supreme Court rulings FRANCE 24 is joined by Ian Reifowitz, Distinguished Professor of Historical Studies at Empire State College of the State University of New York.
