Great. More Evangelists. Exactly what we needed in this terrifying time of homosexuals and (somewhat) racial equality.

Tony Dungy is proof that religion in football can lead to great things.

I fail to see how this event was a problem if it was volunteer, unless the kids who didn't want to go felt like they were being alienated.

As it was a volunteer event, I don't see a problem in it either, just not a big fan of Evangelism. Seems to me the most fanatical Christian extremists are bred in an Evangelist Church. That's just an idiot's observation though as I don't have any backing proof.

Still though, I think it did cross some boundaries in that it is a public school and I feel religion needs to be kept far, far from any classrooms unless the class is studying a religion from a purely objectionable standpoint.

True. How many parents would have freaked out if the coach took a volunteer group to a Mosque?

Me either, as long as they were also educated on and given the opportunity to be indoctrinated into ANY religion they wanted, anything from Hinduism to Pastafarianism. Which they weren't, I'm pretty sure.

The whole entire school + district? Although, to be fair, if there really was a Mosque in Kentucky, it probably would have been "accidentally" burned down already.

Didn't catch that part in the article but that definitely makes a lot of sense. The coach is endorsing Evangelism to the team no matter whether they were forced to go or not. The peer pressures and pressure from Coach are things I didn't think hard enough on I guess.

Player to Coach: "You could put me out Coach, I can play!"

Coach to Player: "And you could have gone to get baptised with the team last week... Let's let (God-fearing, baptised Evangelist) Jimmy get in there.
