Freedom From Religion Foundation
The Freedom From Religion Foundation, a progressive organization reputed to be the largest atheist group in the U.S., supported the Supreme Court decision.
In a statement, the FFRF noted that the case “made strange bedfellows between religious outfits and organizations such as the Freedom From Religion Foundation.”
“Prior to the decision, FFRF had prevailed against similar tactics in one of its ongoing cases. In that lawsuit, a West Virginia school system temporarily ceased its [B]ible instruction in elementary schools,” explained the FFRF.
“The school system then argued in court that the plaintiffs’ claims for past injuries were moot because only a claim for nominal damages remained. FFRF defeated these motions in the district court.”
