Should School Coaches Be Allowed To Lead Prayer After Games?

  • Remember Joe Kennedy, the showboating high school football coach who pretended his rights were violated because he couldn’t pray at midfield after games?. He was the Bremerton High School football coach who insisted his religious rights had been violated when his Washington public school district told him he couldn’t pray at midfield after games. His case went all the way up to the Supreme Court where the ultra-conservative majority gave him a victory. (Hemant Mehta)

LGBTQ+ Rights

How can we solve the problem of saying LGBTQ+ individuals should be celebrated and given full rights as persons, but still tackle issues like the question of Trans athletes competing in female sports or using female bathrooms?

Wise Words From Tennis Superstar Roger Federer

“Perfection is impossible. In the 1,526 singles matches I played in my career, I won almost 80% of those matches. But what percentage of points did I win? 54% In other words, even top ranked tennis players win barely more than half the points they play. When you lose ever second point on average, you learn not to dwell on every shot. You teach yourself to think: ‘Okay, I double faulted…it’s only a point.’ ‘Okay, I came to the net and I got passed again…it’s only a point.’ Even a great shot, an overhead backhand smash that ends up on ESPN’s top 10 playlist – that too is just a point. Here’s why I’m telling you this. When you’re playing a point, it has to be the most important thing in the world. And it is. But when it’s behind you, it’s behind you. This mindset is crucial – because it frees you to fully commit to the next point with intensity, clarity, and focus.” –

Euthyphro

The Philosopher Plato has Socrates ask “is it (1) pious [holy] because it is loved by the gods, or (2) loved by the gods because it is pious?”

This question is an issue today because some religious people think we can’t have a real morality and ethics unless there is a God to tell us what is right and wrong. For the atheist, right and wrong are just opinion and taste.

Does this make sense to you? In the same way, would we say we can’t judge writing as good or bad unless this is revealed by God? What other areas do we make judgments in without needing these criteria to be based on the will of God?

And, are these religious people even being biblical. In Genesis with creation things aren’t good because God declares them so, but rather God see that they are good.
