Will SCOTUS Obliterate the Establishment Clause MRFF Defends? Why We Should All Be Very Worried About Kennedy V Bremerton.

Published On: April 25, 2022|Categories: Featured News|7 Comments|
The Supreme Court justices with the conservative justices circled in red and a question mark on Chief Justice Roberts

“Kennedy v Bremerton School District comes before the Supreme Court of the United States today. The ultimate decision in this case—likely to be revealed months from now—will have long reach and impact for all Americans because it will directly address the balance between the concepts of Freedom of Expression and Religious Practice versus the Establishment Clause in the First Amendment that prohibits government entities from endorsing or showing preference for a specific religious perspective.”

“… I see the Establishment Clause under an assault unlike anything it’s faced in sixty years and I’m terrified. I think that it’s very likely that the 6-3 Conservative Majority eviscerates our Constitution, effectively establishing a state religion for many citizens.”

— MRFF Advisory Board Member Brigadier General, USAF (retired) Marty France

    We can only hope that this happens. Imagining a world without MRFF is very exciting.

    If in fact the Supremes decide to dismantle the Establishment clause more than the MRFF will end; our Constitution will be destroyed. And that egregious act is directly the responsibility of Christian nationalists who have said in this platform many times that their religious rights matter more than other citizens who don’t worship as they do.

    For the trolls- the USA hasn’t been destroyed by secularism, it’s being destroyed as we speak by religious hardliners who demand their specific flavor of dogma be followed by everyone. And small minded followers cheer for the toppling of giants not understanding what happens next – the unending wars as We The People play out Emo Phillips greatest joke in all its flavors and varieties. Franklin weeps.

    Once the purity tests start, and they will, our great experiment is over, spoiled by the few who refuse to share the public square with those who are different.

    The Founding Fathers believed We The People were smart enough to uphold and improve on the idea of Rights for all. Too bad the dumbing of Americans proved them wrong.

    For the record, I hope the Supremes do the correct thing but I’m prepared for them to absolutely do the wrong thing. After all, this was the goal all those years ago when Dominionism was just a glint in its daddies eye. Someone is happy about this case, just not me.

    Is there a recent example of a public official trying to establish a religion or force people to participate in a particular religion?

    Paul Howell, what do you mean by recent? Like last week? In the past year? In the past five years?

    I ask because lawsuits from parents/students challenging school districts for their unconstitutional practices of religion have been ongoing for at least twenty years. This isn’t a new issue. It’s only ‘new’ in that the balance of the Supremes is weighted in favor of Christian nationalists for the first time in decades.

    As for the Military, yeah, there is an example on this site where a “public official” directed their subordinates to lower the USA flag on Easter in honor of Christ. Is that recent enough for you?

    Christian Nationalists do not recognize that their right to freely practice their religion ends where my rights begin.

    On a “looking for a silver lining” side of life, if the Supremes do find in favor for the former coach Kennedy, the fall out will be popcorn worthy. I can’t wait for all the other religions to sue for equal representation. I hear the Satanists are sharpening their lawyer squad even as I’m typing this post. Can’t. Wait.

    Well things were infinitely better decades ago in more conservative tines…so let’s definitely go back to that. Much needed improvement.

    Getyousome;

    You claim that “things were infinitely better decades ago”. Better for who, and why?

    For women? No, things were worse then. They were locked out of most professions, had to endure casual and blatant sexual harassment, often had their opinions ignored or stolen, expected to stay home, get married, and care for children, large purchases would have the salesman talking to a man (husband, father, son, etc.) rather than her, could not have her own bank accounts or credit cards, and locked out of most professional advancement.

    Blacks? No, things were worse then. Blatant racism, locked out of most education opportunities, worse schools, segregation, Jim Crow laws, locked out of most professions and professional advancement, had to be obsequious to all whites, hateful stereotypes, and so on.

    Hispanics, Native Americans, and Asians? No, things were worse then. Much the same as Blacks, but not quite to the same degree.

    Homosexuals? No things were far worse. They could be arrested for existing. Hateful stereotypes, having to hide that they existed, could be fired and blackballed from their profession if they were found out, could be evicted if they were found out, etc.

    (Part 2 of 2)

    Atheists and non-christians? No, things were much worse then. They had to endure constant proselytization from EVERYONE, and could not say anything. Atheists were denied to even exist often, and many religions were disparaged as well. Their holidays were ignored, and they were unlikely to be able to get time off to observe them. They could have trouble finding peace, and in come cases could be fired and even blackballed if they were found out. In the military, they could be denied promotion, given the worse jobs and duties, punished for not going to christian services, killed, and given patrols and duties with a high likelihood of death.

    All in all, for most people, things were far worse decades ago. If you think that “things were infinitely better”, then you need to support your claims. You might also state what “improvements” are needed.
