Day 10.213 Good versus Evil
Is this some type of cheap Halloween stunt?
At a High School football game in Bremerton, WA, a coach suspended by the district for praying (to the Christian version of God) after games at mid-field, sat in the stands and watched his boys play.
The school district's legal staff offered one of the most incredibly weak responses I have ever seen as precedent. The cowardly decision outraged thousands of parents, administrators and students.
The 'case' made it all the way to the other coast and the other Washington, the DC.
I am appalled.
The lawyers and administrators in a classic display of CYA, cited the need for strict adherence to the Constitution and, not wanting to upset the hierarchy and chain of command, and after Coach had basically thumbed his nose at the pathetic hypocrisy by doing what he considered to be a bonding, affirming, empowering moment with his players (things that coaches are supposed to do) a team that had just put their limbs on the line as a rite of passage, placed him on a temporary leave of absence.
Where upon he showed up to watch the team play. Good on ya Coach. BTW Coach is a 20 year Marine veteran.
Are you smelling confrontation here?
Yeah, me too. I am with ya Coach. Semper Fi.
But the truly evil and troubling part, trumping even the idiocy of the aforementioned bureaucrats, administrators, politicians and lawyers, is this:
Guess who else showed up?
A thousand football fans from local schools offering solidarity and support?
The Archbishop of Kitsap County?
A task force of Satanists.
So I repeat: WHAT THE HELL HAVE WE DONE?
