A Rule Is A Rule …


… Even when the rule seems to serve little to no valid purpose.  The link below will take the visitor to a story about a high school track relay team that trained hard to win their race.  Unfortunately one team member expressed his elation at winning with a gesture to the sky.  This young man’s action, i.e. pointing to the sky, was violation enough to disqualify the four man team from their win.

One has to hope; yes, and pray, the arbiter in this contest made the decision without malice or the desire to show a young Christian, he cannot express his beliefs in the marketplace of ideas … even when the ideas amount to a silent gesture demonstrating the youth’s character.  It looks like our high schools may follow the Pentagon’s lead.

Shh! Don’t Point At Him!
