In football jargon, there is the term “hail Mary.” Generally it is a term used to describe a last-second, deep pass by a quarterback to one or more of his receivers who race to the end zone and hope against hope they can come down with a touchdown catch amid a sea of defenders and win the game.

It happens – but it’s rare. When it does, some teams have even referred to such plays as miracles.

If you’re picking up on the Biblical references, good for you, because this story is full of both – football and Biblical references.

As reported by Fox News and others in recent days, a Washington State high school football coach was suspended by the school district’s administrators because he dared to exercise his First Amendment religious freedom by praying where some people could see him (as in he was doing it publicly).

Mind you, the coach, Joe Kennedy, from Bremerton High School, wasn’t requiring his players to join him. In fact, he wasn’t asking anyone to join him. This was all him, acting alone and of his own (constitutional) accord.

Or so he thought. School officials – egged on by a minority of parents who somehow feel they have a First Amendment right to complain but feel put upon when someone else deigns to exercise a different right outlined in the same amendment – decided they needed to punish him for his heinous “act.”

Prayer is a no-no, but minors smoking dope is okay?
