A Texas high school track team was prevented from advancing to the state finals after the student who landed first place in the boys 4×100-meter relay pointed towards the sky in a gesture of faith, prompting the team’s disqualification.

And what happens to the "officials" who disqualified them?

Nothing. How many people will boycott in protest? None. How will the direction we are going be changed? It wont.

What was said here is one of the most insanely idiotic things...

Yes, emalvini. America is GONE, when

SILENTLY pointing A FINGER to the sky constitutes EXCESSIVE CELEBRATION.

Excessive: going beyond a normal or acceptable limit in degree or amount (M-W)

A history of excessive celebrations BANNED from high school sports:
~ First, pouring drinks onto fellow players' heads
~ Then, pileups of team members; followed by, group hugs
~ Next, high fives; then all touching (hugs, shoulder slaps, handshakes)
~ Then, jumping up and down.
~ After that, shouting, yelling, or making any loud noise
~ Then, all verbal communication
~ Next, mouthing words, notably with clenched hands, Yes!

~ Then, extending the arms - out to the side or above the head, such as *this* excessive display, with a raised arm PLUS hand gesture:

~ Now banned, with even arms held close to the body, all gestures, whether raising or turning the head; pointing a finger; or smiling or showing any other facial expression.

ACCEPTABLE ACKNOWLEDGEMENT OF VICTORY: http://images.sodahead.com/polls/001038589/sam_emoticon_xlar...

It's ABSURD. Why aren't people outraged?

Actually, what the student did wasn't a "celebration" at all. It appears he was expressing GRATITUDE. He didn't even SAY the word GOD, but only made an INDIRECT REFERENCE to some higher power. Imagine in AMERICA having to fight for your FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHTS to FREE SPEECH and FREEDOM OF RELIGION over... a SILENT, FINGER-GESTURE of THANKS.

Some Times

I read these stories that go on in School and I have a hard time believing it but dang must be true. When I was in School. It wasn't all that bad. I guess because I was a rebel. I gave teachers a hard time if they were nasty to us. The only extreme things I can remember from school was them telling us to walk in a straight line to class. One time a teacher told me to "shut up, or I will crucify you to the wall". Other than that, School was easy.

That's the whole problem with

government sponsored anything -- It is simply impossible to be fair to the different belief systems out there. Only by eliminating government involvement with education can scenarios like this be avoided.

I would like to

Know if students stood up for that kid that won. I would have.
