The injured player was on the ground being tended to by trainers and coaches.
So the Seminole High School football team did what many football teams do. The teenage boys took a knee, bowed their heads and prayed for their injured teammate.
But that simple act of compassion and humanity in Sanford, Florida sparked outrage from the Freedom From Religion Foundation ‚Äď a group of perpetually offended atheists from Wisconsin. An FFRF attorney fired off a letter to the superintendent of Seminole County Public Schools ‚Äď accusing them of having an adult lead the prayer for the injured child....

Sadly, I guess some people are not interested in getting know their brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus? I believe we should be interested in the lives of the brethren: after all, are we are all a part of The Body of Christ!
Also, if Christians followed Jesus' admonishments to visit the sick (Matthew 25:36), I would never be lonely. Jesus said, "If you love me, you will keep my commandments." And we know His commandments are for us to love one another as Jesus has loved us (John 13:34)!
Atheists need to stand tall in the history of human progress. What would society be without Joseph Stalin, Pol Pot , Ho Chi Minn, Fidel Castro, Hitler or Lenin . Each one of these men put in place a form of Atheistic Evolutionary government. So please, if your an atheist , don't be so offended at students a football game. Be proud of the world you have made and remade through out the history of mankind. At least then, you'd be honest of your intensions.
The only question we have to ask these people is "why would you be offended of we are all just stardust, particles of matter resulting from some random explosion? What do you care what other stardust decides to do or not do?" Subjective morality cannot make any valuable claims about morality!
Hey, that's my line in real life. Instead of swearing, I'll say, "oh brother, or good grief". I know...who cares. : / Anyway, this particular athiest group has had its hand in RI affairs as well. There was a gkrl in Cranston who won a substantial judgement because she was offended by a poster that mentioned God in her school, and this WI group also wanted a veterans memorial removed from the lot of a fire station because it dares to mention God. The city of Woonsocket basically told them to get lost. This was a couple of years ago and the memorial remains.
