Column: If you support postgame prayers, then you should also support Kaepernick

Given the nature of our third branch of government, the United States Supreme Court, the ruling is no surprise. 

Before the court goes after the gay marriage, interracial marriage and a woman’s right to vote, on Monday morning it ruled in favor of the high school football coach who took a knee to pray.

As it should.
