    I'm surprised that there are colleges in Arkansas.

    That's the state where they invented the toothbrush.

    Invented anywhere else and it'd have been called the teethbrush.

    False! The state is blocked from ESTABLiSHING a religion. If you removed endorsement of religion then Obama's ISIS speech would be 10 seconds long. He endorsed Islam all throughout that speech.

    I really thought you were smart enough to get my point. Race had nothing to do with my post other than to suggest that things have changed for the better in 51 years. That was all. Surely you are capable of understanding that?

    Can you honestly tell me that you would have been just as supportive if it were a star and crescent decal the players were to wear to honor two Muslims?



    Be honest:

    Do you think the team would have readily agreed to wear it?

    Would you have been as quick to bring it to our attention if some players or citizens had protested it?

    Would have been as supportive to displaying that religious symbol?
    Yes. Yes I would. Provided that the one's being honored weren't terrorists or Islam extremists, I wouldn't care if they did.

    After all, fair is fair.
    Disinformation campaign? The Russian collusion meme pushed by the 'news' media, behaving as a political propaganda organ, hell bent to destroy a legitimately elected president to implement his agenda per the votes of the same electorate. Reference The Big Lie Reference Goebbels

    And to be clear, I'm not the slightest bit religious but I would never presume to invent offense simply for the purpose of
    denying a religious person something they hold dear.


    No one was denied anything, they can wear as many crosses as they want on their own time.

    Heck, they can have crosses tattooed all over their bodies, from head to toe.

    If you don't want to believe the article and make up your own story ...go right ahead ... but you are not very convincing ... no matter how many times you say "yep".
    yep the players voluntarily thank you for finally admitting it. sure they asked their coach for permission who wouldn't.
    i believe the article i don't believe you.

    you even said it they voluntarily did it.
