Colin Kaepernick takes a knee to show his disgust for police officers and his hatred of America, and the Left goes wild with appobation.
A middle school football coach kneels in solidarity with his team’s prayer, and liberals try to ruin his career.
Via Fox News Insider:
Wakulla Middle School football coach Eddie Metcalf has faced criticism for kneeling alongside his team during a pregame prayer.
A video posted on Facebook Oct. 7 by Keith Whitfield, a team member’s parent, shows Metcalf taking a knee in the pregame huddle, though it’s unclear if he actually took part in the prayer led by one of his players.
According to the Wakulla County School Board, that “act of reverence” is against the law.
“That’s not allowable under the law,” Superintendent Robert Pearce told television station WCTV. “The coach may not participate in the prayer.”
Here is the offending act:
The Freedom From Religion Foundation, a leftist atheist organization whose sole purpose is to remove crosses, nativity scenes, and other religious symbols from cities and towns across America concurred, calling the coach’s act of kneeling beside his players prayer circle “unconstitutional.”
The superintendent at this school added that the coach needs “to have separation from the players, two to three steps.”
“You are allowed to have reverent respect for their prayer,” he added.
Staying two to three steps away from a prayer sudden makes it constitutional? Insanity.
So let’s see if we fully understand the difference between kneeling in prayer and kneeling in protest. From everything he’s said publicly about his taking a knee, Colin Kaepernick is expressly deeply held convictions about what is good and right. Someone please explain to me how, if he is being sincere, that’s different from exercising religious beliefs.
