People's choice or politically correct?

By Wilma Caraway | May 16, 2013

On May 8, 2013, I read two interesting articles on the internet. One thrilled me, but the other infuriated me!

First, let me congratulate Tim Tebow for being No. 1 on the Forbes’ List of America’s Most Influential Athletes. Americans put Tim Tebow at the top of the list - People’s Choice!

Next, my heart goes out to a Columbus, Texas high school track and field team for being disqualified in competing for the state championship because one player pointed a finger toward Heaven upon the team’s state qualification! Politics denied these young men their opportunity to compete for a title they had so diligently worked hard for - Politically Correct!

Isn’t it ironic that one Christian is exalted by the people and another Christian is condemned by politics!

Because we do not want to offend anyone, we millions of Christians are letting America, as we know it, be destroyed by one atheist (or politician) at a time!

Wake up America! Take a stand! Write a letter! Contact the UIL (University Interscholastic League)! Call that principal in Columbus, Texas! Call your congressman or congresswoman! Do something before we lose all our rights!

Do something before we lose all of our rights?  Come, come, Ms Caraway.  The student-athlete, Derrick Hayes, as well as his father admitted that the gesture was not religious after all and that no one‘s rights were violated.  All that indignation for naught.
