    Football players at Arkansas State University were ordered to either remove a Christian cross decal from their helmets or modify it into a mathematical sign after a Jonesboro attorney complained that the image violated the U.S. Constitution.
    The cross decal was meant to memorialize former player Markel Owens and former equipment manager Barry Weyer, said athletic director Terry Mohajir. Weyer was killed in a June car crash. Owens was gunned down in Tennessee in January.
    “The players knew they were both Christians so they decided to use the cross along with their initials,” he said. “They wanted to carry the spirits of Markel and Barry Don onto the field for one more season.”
    “The crosses appeared to confer State’s endorsement of religion, specifically Christianity,” the Freedom from Religion Foundation wrote. “The inclusion of the Latin cross on the helmets also excludes the 19 percent of the American population that is non-religious.”
    FFRF co-presidents Annie Lauire Gaylor and Dan Barker went so far as to suggest alternative ways for the football players to mourn.

    Yeah that's real "progressive" not having a heart.
    No... they are not trying to impose their wills on others. Your example is also poor. It is a State school. STATE.

    Progressives want everybody to enjoy their specific spiritual values but just to do so privately or in public places.

    Christians want their religion but not others to be taught in school and to appear in State run institutions...

    I think allowing the crosses should have been allowed and that it would not have been a big deal personally... but would Christians be OK with Muslims putting their symbols on the helmets or a saying from the Qu'ran in a federal court house?

    To honor dead students they should. And to the second part, this country was founded on Judeo Christian values. But If someone wants to do a Hindu prayer in a court house go ahead. I may not agree with to whom your praying too, so I'm not going to pray with you. No harm no fowl.

    Would you be okay with Muslims putting their symbols and sayings in a federal courthouse?

    As an example I could give eyewitness accounts of things my Grandfather did 30 years ago to my son.

    Does that make those accounts false ?

    hence why Christianity is different and not the same of all other religions.

    Most people have strange beliefs and they don't all concern religion.

    Jesus was indeed a revolutionary. He gave the world the idea that the poor, like the rich, have a soul; that God treats everyone with equal grace and compassion.

    That idea, on which modern democracies are based, is still reverberating around the world today. Many living in the democracies don't understand why they are free people, and instead suppose that it is the sensible and natural order of things. However the tendency among humans is often in another direction. Instead of a benevolent God they often choose government as their masters, or twisted ideologies where the rituals of religion become more important than the individual and the idea of a human soul is not seriously considered.

    I'm not sure about its effect on Christianity but I'm sure that tourism in that area will sky rocket.

    Sorry, I can't debate a person on a topic that is complicated when such a simple and incorrect mistake is still on the floor. Tends to be a waste of time...
    Ironic you would say that, when, according to your link:

    hundred

    noun hun·dred \ˈhən-drəd, -dərd\

    : the number 100

    hundreds : an amount that is more than 200
    used to refer to a specified century



    But whatever. You were attempting to use time to discredit the authorship of the NT, and turned out to be wrong.
    Worth noting, Democrats: President Trump will have a Pen and a Phone. #Precedent.
