    girl gets boot from Catholic football league

    'More than able to hold her own,' girl gets boot from Catholic football league - CNN.com

    Philadelphia (CNN) -- Caroline Pla has been playing football since kindergarten, and for the past two years, the 11-year-old has been knocking opposing players on their butts.

    It never occurred to her that someone might need to protect her from the sport she adores.

    Her playing time with the Catholic Youth Organization ended after last season when the Archdiocese of Philadelphia enforced its "boys only" policy for football, sidelining the All-Star guard and defensive end.


    Nothing to see here folks, just more of the CC showing it's true sexist colors.

    What do you expect.. she is a second class citizen just above gays in the eyes of the Catholic Church and most religions. After all she got no balls, hence she must be defective and needs protection......

    Is it specifically for the schools? If so then who's going to stop them if they start up their own league independent of a school? There is no reason for schools to continue an unpopular sport (assuming it was unpopular). In other words, let's not be hasty with the judgment when we're clearly lacking more details.

    Yes, as all anti-Catholics know the women saints are all second-class saints. Mary? She's a joke to Catholics.

    I see nothing wrong with not allowing girls to play football with guys. A girl getting tackled by a 200# eight-grader just doesn't make sense to me. Oh, wait! We're not about common sense!! We're about political correctness.

    Tempest, meet teapot. Girls mature faster than boys, and yes, for the moment she can knock boys down in football. That won't be true for much longer.
    The morality of abortion is not a religious belief, any more than the morality of slavery, apartheid, rape, larceny, murder or arson is a religious belief. These are norms of the natural law of mankind and can be legislated even in a completely religionless society.

    What's the difference between a girl being tackled by a 200# player and a boy being tackled by a 200# player?

    So why stop her now, rather than later?

    I dont play football so none. But I understand your point and yes it is a societal problem based on religious dogma. Fact is the best female football player ever (Marta) learned her trade by playing against boys in Brazil and could if she was allowed by the male dominated football associations... play in any top flight male football team.
