Go Get 'Em, Marcus

I just found this on the NewsRWReel ...

Marcus Borden, a high school football coach in New Jersey, has filed suit against his employer. The school district that employs him was prepared to fire him for, of all things, saying a pre-game prayer with his team, a clear violation of his (and his players') First Amendment right to free practice of religion.

Provided Mr. Borden did not force any of his players to participate in the prayer, and allowed anyone to choose not to participate, he deserves to win this case handily. The First Amendment protects his right and his players' right to pray, whether in public or not. The ACLU can go fuck themselves.
