Over a month has passed since the Supreme Court ruled on several high-profile religious cases, and media continue to attack the institution as imposing Christianity on the country.
The two cases that gained the most attention were Carson v. Makin and Kennedy v. Bremerton School District, both of which dealt with the freedom of religious expression. The Carson ruling allowed tuition assistance programs to be used for religious schools while the Kennedy decision ruled that ex-Bremerton High School football assistant coach Joseph Kennedy maintained the right to say post-game prayers on school grounds. First Liberty Institute, a legal organization dedicated to defending religious liberty, helped defend both cases as they headed to the Supreme Court.
Although some media outlets claimed that these decisions forced Christianity onto Americans, First Liberty Institute President Kelly Shackelford disputed this to Fox News Digital.
“The statements afterwards, the Muslim groups, Jewish groups, many of them said, ‘Hey, this provides freedom for us, too,’” Shackelford said.
“They either haven’t read the law and the decisions or they just have an agenda and want to push things in a different direction,” he said.
Shackelford remained optimistic, though, saying, “Most Americans now have more religious freedom than they’ve ever had in a lifetime.”
