Freedom from Religion Foundation (FFFR) demands schools to eliminate chaplains and coaches stop talking to the players about faith.
What are today’s coaches of faith to do?
FCA’s legal department has put together a Students Rights Q&A Handbook that is clear and very helpful for coaches and students.
The key words are voluntary, student initiated, and lead/supervised by a coach or teacher but non participatory.
Peter and John were commanded to stop talking about Jesus almost 2000 years ago. Thus, they called the apostles back in and commanded them never again to speak or teach in the name of Jesus.
But Peter and John replied, “ Do you think God wants us to obey you rather than him? We cannot stop telling about everything we have seen and heard.”
