Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt on SCOTUS’ Joseph A. Kennedy v. Bremerton School District ruling

TOPEKA – Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt voiced his opinion on today’s U.S. Supreme Court decision in Joseph A. Kennedy v. Bremerton School District. Schmidt said, “Today’s decision confirms what many of us long have long understood: The U.S. Constitution protects personal religious expression, and that protection is not shed merely because a person of faith is employed by the government in a public role. As the Court concluded, ‘Respect for religious expressions is indispensable to life in a free and diverse Republic—whether those expressions take place in a sanctuary or on a field, and whether they manifest through the spoken word or a bowed head.’ I’m proud Kansas stood on the right side in this historic case rejecting government discrimination against people because of their free expression of religious faith.”
