Before you react with a "so what" type of response, consider this:


How would you feel if your coach took your kid and converted him to Islam or Wicca?

"It was completely voluntary," Meeks told ABCNews.com, noting that of the team's 46 players, about 20 elected to go on the trip.

If that volunteer driver of the public school bus had had a wreck who do you think was getting sued? There's no way they should have been allowed to go on a school bus ...

In some part of the country folks just do what they feel is right, as opposed to worrying about accidents that might occur or getting sued.  Not saying it is right, just saying it exists.

Now if they were teaching that Obama ditty... now we have a problem

Right, because everyone knows a highschool kid is going to risk being "that guy" and not go. Let's not even forget to mention the fear a highschool athlete may have if he doesn't do something "voluntarily", when is anything in football ever voluntary? What is it, 98% of all NFL players show up to voluntary workouts?
Hmmm 20 out of 46 purportedly chose to attend.  Kinda blows that theory up in my humble opinion - less than 50%.  The majority, that being the 26, didn't seem too concerned about repercussion from the coach/situation/idea.

What a ridiculous thread. I'm sorry it offended and bothered you so much that this occurred, maybe PR can bring in trauma counselors to help you go on with life.

Now it's a crime to even witness to people?  The trip was not a planned school function so I don't see what the big deal is? 
We are simply allowing the minority to destroy this country!!

Without Parental consent prior to the action, it is intolerable.    Worse yet, this was a PUBLIC SCHOOL, funded by PUBLIC MONEY, ergo the seperation of Church and State was totally ignored.
