The Freedom From Religion Foundation is locked in a dispute with the University of Tennessee Knoxville over it's policy allowing on field prayer before it's football games. In defense of on field prayer is Allen West noted football player and attempted politician from time to time. John Iadarola and Desi Doyen of The Young Turks discuss.
Should on field prayer be banned? Tell us what you think in the comment section below.
"Disgraced Floridian and former congressman Allen West took some time recently to address a Texas conservative group about the dangers of separating church and state—dangers like grievous football injuries, specifically. But thankfully, that ain’t nothing a little prayer can’t fix.
So where does West get off making these claims?
It appears West’s various head-on attacks did a little more damage than he realizes, because his claims of a lack of “catastrophic injuries” back in his day are demonstrably false. What’s more, the instance he was responding to didn’t even involve removing prayer from football entirely."
