Drop Kick Me Jesus…

Through the goal posts of life…

I saw this over at JT and thought the above would be an appropriate song for this Georgia high school’s band to play during their football games.

Cheerleaders’ Religious Signs Draw Fire

Community members are rallying around Lakeview-Fort Oglethorpe High School cheerleaders after they were banned from displaying signs with Bible verses urging fans and players to “commit to the Lord” and “take courage and do it.”

The banners — the paper ones that football players crash through at the beginning of games — have been common sights in the school’s football stadium since 2003, local officials say.

“The cheerleaders are not trying to push a religious cause, to shove religion down someone’s throat,” said local youth minister Brad Scott, who was LFO High’s class president in 2004. “The cheerleaders are just using Scripture to show motivation and inspiration to the players and the fans.”

Ooh, ooh!  I have some suggestions:

“‘Now go and strike Amalek and devote to destruction all that they have. Do not spare them, but kill both man and woman, child and infant, ox and sheep, camel and donkey.'” (1 Samuel 15:3)

And here’s one these cheerleaders can draw some inspiration from:

“I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she must be silent.” (1 Timothy 2:12)

Or maybe:

“Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord.” (Ephesians 5:22)

And I have always loved this one to inspire motivation:

“Take your son, your only son Isaac, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt-offering on one of the mountains that I shall show you.” (Genesis 22:2)

But I am sure the football coaches would prefer something like this:

Behold now, I have two daughters which have not known man; let me, I pray you, bring them out unto you, and do ye to them as is good in your eyes: only unto these men do nothing

Yep, the Bible.  It is so full of bullshit inspiration.  Oh, and the mayor’s opinion from this backassed rednecked inbred town on the subject?

The mayor said football coach John Allen made the signs a tradition around 2003 and it has continued ever since.

“If it’s offensive to anyone, let them go watch another football game,” he said. “Nobody’s forced to come there and nobody’s forced to read the signs.”

You know, those parents of kids that go to that school, or any of the kids that aren’t Christian that go there… they can just go to some other game. 

In the name of Jesus Christ I compel them!
