As far as we can tell — and we’re read up a bit on the Bible (hey, the Old Testament is in the hizzy!) — Christianity is usually all about forgiveness and acceptance. At least that’s what the Jesuits and nuns told us before breaking out the rulers when we were in high school and college. So we were more than a bit surprised when we read the ST. PETERSBURG TIMES story about the junior varsity basketball team at Westside Christian School, in Largo, Fla., which had to quit the Suncoast Christian Conference so that Aliyah Farley could play on the team.
(Aliyah Farley: Why the SCC is now a 10-team league.)
Yup, you read that right. The Suncoast Christian Conference (SCC) refused to let girls play with boys, even when there’s nowhere else for the girls to play. What makes the decision even less defensible are the grounds upon which the decision was made: By a vote of 8-2 (with one abstention), the SCC decided that the risks were too great that boys and girls playing together could lead to sin.
Welcome back to the 18th century folks, and stay tuned for Nathaniel Hawthorne’s next best selling novel.
