    Correct. Now they are not forced to wear a cross, their rights are no longer violated.
    Don't work out, work in.

    Of course I never claimed that, and a misunderstanding of what has actually been said is an ongoing problem with leftists. Leftists should be more concerned about the incredible amount of money being wasted at educational facilities rather whether the athletic department of a university allowed students to put a star on their helmet to honor dead friends.

    This inability to understand the difference between the important and the trivial has made leftists a petty, officious group, petulant adolescents insisting on their own way and stamping their feet until they get it. Their own education system has failed them, though of course they don't know it, and will rattle on about stars on helmets as though defending the inevitable collapse of civilization.

    What a bunch of loons!

    Yes there is - it's called the First Amendment...

    Your big goddamn government cannot stop an individual from placing a crucifix on their helmet...

    Of course you being a progressive you don't understand that - individual freedoms and rights.

    However, if a player chooses to display a religious symbol, he may do so, acvording to his civil rights.

    you are quite mistaken
    one does not have a RIGHT to use the facilities of another - in this instance a state university - to project their religious views

    now, if he owns the football team, he can then place anything he wants on the uniform

    where did your side come up with the idea that you are entitled to use the property of others as it pleases you, even tho the property owner objects to the manner of usage?
