Constitutional law scholar John Vile is available to comment on the Kennedy v. Bremerton School District

Constitutional law expert John R. Vile, breaks down the Court’s decision on Kennedy v. Bremerton School District.

“Today’s 6-3 decision by the United States Supreme Court in Kennedy v Bremerton School District, asserting that school teachers and coaches do not lose their right to express their faith until they coerce students or others into joining them, is a victory for both the First Amendment right to freely exercise one’s religion and for government employees to express their private religious views, while clearly not attempting to establish a religion by announcing official school policies,” Vile explains.

“The decision affirms that although the Constitution prohibits governments from establishing religious dogma, it does not fear religion per se and welcomes individual expressions and exercises of faith,” he concludes.

Vile views this decision through the lens of a scholar of American constitutional law and as a pastor. He is available to provide balanced and nuanced commentary on this decision and other matters related to United States government and politics.

Vile is the author and editor of numerous books on American politics and law, including A Companion to the U.S. Constitution and its Amendments. He graduated from the College of William and Mary, which earned his doctorate. to the government of the University of Virginia.
