Today's Bible Lesson: Girls Can't Play Football

There may be nothing in the rulebook that says a mule can't play football, but there's another rule book out there that apparently does say something about girls not being place kickers. That was news to Kacy Stuart, a 14-year-old lass from Spaulding County, Georgia, who is playing for the New Creation Center Crusaders—a team made up of home school and private school boys. Well, she plays for them when the other team doesn't punk out or start quoting Bible verses at her.

The first team Kacy faced relied on the Bible to express its beliefs about female football players in a pre-game statement, said New Creation athletic director Coach Ken Townley. “The East Atlanta Mustangs didn’t play us under protest but they were allowed to read a statement on their beliefs about female football players,” Townley said. “They used biblical verses from the book of Romans. I was very stunned by that.”


Remember, these people are lecturing a home school team called the Crusaders about what the Bible says about female football players. That team has accepted her and her pretty good leg and it's their opponents who somehow can't handle giving up field goals to a girl. • Controversy follows girl football kicker + Using the Bible to keep girls in “their place” [Atlanta Journal Constitution]
