  1. No, he wasn't "just praying". While on the clock as a football coach and representative of the government, he prayed in a deliberately public manner. And given his role and status relative to his players, that can be seen as creating an environment where players feel pressured to go along. And the courts have consistently ruled for decades that public school officials cannot create that type of environment. If this was just about him wanting to pray, why did he have to go out to the middle of the field immediately after the game to do it? What's the point of that? Why can't he just pray to himself after he's off the clock? No it doesn't. And I'm sure you're also familiar with Christ's instructions in Matthew 6:5-6 "“And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. 6 But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. " The coach's actions seem much more like the hypocrites Jesus was talking about.

    That's great! Understood.

    So would you afford Darwin the same consideration? And by that I mean, would you also consider Darwin's views on race in the context of commonly held views in the mid-1800's as opposed to "a twenty-first century perspective"? Thanks for explaining.

    Um......I'm pretty sure calling for burning Jewish homes and synagogues, and stealing all their things is appalling by any standards.

    Of course not. He claimed to be, but obviously his actions showed otherwise. You're missing the point. Horrible people justify their horrible actions however they can....by appealing to Darwinism, Christianity, racial animosity, economic stress, nationalism.....whatever. Even if Hitler was a committed Darwinist and justified his atrocities by appealing to Darwinism, that's no more a reflection on Darwinism than that Hitler did the same with Christianity is a reflection on our faith. Make sense?

    And has anyone here read Martin Luther's "On the Jews and their Lies"? https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/On_the_Jews_and_Their_Lies Ugh.

    So has Christianity. "I believe today that I am acting in the sense of the Almighty Creator. By warding off the Jews I am fighting for the Lord's work." --Aldof Hitler 1936 Meanwhile the writings of Darwin were banned in Nazi Germany.

    Not sure what "ideology" you think Darwin championed, or how you think he has "followers". He proposed a scientific hypotheses that has proven to be quite useful. Your obsession with liberals is noted.

    I've never really understood this "Darwin was a racist" creationist talking point. Even if true, it has absolutely no bearing on the scientific validity of what he proposed. And more importantly, it's not like the enemies of Christianity don't have an almost endless supply of Christians being blatantly racist and justifying their racism through scripture.

    Right, and it's clear from the actual book, Darwin used the term "race" to refer to different varieties of organisms.
  11. I said teacher or principal, but that's of little consequence. And since this is in a state with an anti-discrimination law that includes transgenders, you would quit. Understood.
  12. ??????? The OP is about a how a school handled a transgendered student; the question I asked was how you would handle the same situation. How? Again, the school didn't initiate this, rather it was the parents of a child who informed the teacher that their child would start showing up dressed as a girl and using a girl's name. That's why I asked my question......what would you do if you were that teacher? You said you'd quit.
  13. That video doesn't make it clear what a teacher at that school would do in the situation from the OP.
  14. In this case, the parents of the transgender child approached the teacher and notified her that the child was going to start coming to school as a girl and would be using a girl's name. They then requested the teacher's help in making that process easier for the child. According to state anti-discrimination law, the school was obligated to protect the child the same as they would a child from a different race. You'd quit. That's really all I was wondering. Again, the relevant anti-discrimination law here is a state law.
  15. But what would you do if you were the principal or teacher?
