ATHEISTS GROUP DEMANDS ALL CHRISTIAN COACHES AND CHAPLAINS BE BANNED FROM TEACHING JESUS

AN ATHEIST GROUP IS DEMANDING THAT PUBLICLY FUNDED UNIVERSITIES TAKE IMMEDIATE STEPS TO BAR CHRISTIAN COACHES AND CHAPLAINS FROM “CONVERTING FOOTBALL FIELDS INTO MISSION FIELDS.” “The words of coaches and chaplains make clear that their purpose is to instill Christianity in vulnerable young men,” the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) says in a new report, titled “Pray to Play.”

“Public universities and their employees cannot endorse, promote, or favor religion,” the report states. “Yet, many football coaches at public universities bring in chaplains — often from their own church or even members of their own family — to prey on and pray with students, with no regard for the rights of those students or the Constitution. “These coaches are converting playing fields into mission fields and public universities are doing nothing to halt this breach of trust. They are failing their student athletes.” FFRF says the purpose of its report is to “expose this unconstitutional system, encourage universities to fix it, and stimulate further efforts to protect students’ rights of conscience.”
