September 24, 2017, 10:45:16 pm Psalm 51:17 says: The specific rule pertaining to the national anthem is found on pages A62-63 of the league rulebook. It states: “The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem. “During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”

I can't say I've seen it all, but this is one for the record.

This coach in Alabama has been fired for not changing the church he and his family attend when given Athletic Director position at his high school he coaches. Nothing said while he was just a coach. When promoted to AD, "officials" apparently pressured him to change to the church of the same name, East Memorial Baptist Church, as the school, East Memorial Christian Academy. He found he just couldn't do it, so he got fired. THAT is classic churchianity wickedness.

Alabama state champion coach and AD fired for being a member of the wrong church

By Cameron Smith | Prep Rally – 12 hours ago

One of the most successful coaches in the state of Alabama is suddenly out of a job after he was dismissed for what initially seems to be a remarkably trivial reason: He attends the wrong church.

As reported by the Montgomery Advertiser, Prattville (Ala.) East Memorial Christian Academy super coach Scott Phillips, who led the school’s football program to its first state playoff birth in years and coached the boys basketball team to the first state title in any sport, was dismissed because he refused to force his family to attend East Memorial Baptist Church.

While Phillips had never been forced to attend the school’s affiliated church when he was only a coach, that changed when he became the school’s athletic director. As confirmed by the Advertiser, East Memorial Christian Academy’s athletic director was expected to attend the East Memorial Baptist Church, even though there was allegedly not an official clause in the contract requiring such attendance.

Phillips tried to make that work, getting his family to start each Sunday at a 9 a.m. service at East Memorial before attending an 11 a.m. service at his family’s church of choice, Church of the Highlands. Eventually that routine began to make Phillips feel dishonest, leading to a conversation with East Memorial officials where the coach and AD told them he didn’t feel comfortable attending Sunday services at East Memorial Baptist.

That was the last conversation he would have as the school’s AD.

"I was 30 seconds from turning the job down because of the church issue," Phillips told the Advertiser. "They wanted me to transition from the Church of the Highlands to East Memorial. I never really liked that, so I went back in my administrator’s office and told them I was willing to give this a try, but I don’t know how this will work out?

"That was the last thing said."

Phillips insists that he tried to shift his family from Church of the Highlands to Eastern Memorial Baptist, but said he never reached any level of comfort about the decision. Eventually, he had to deal with the situation head-on, hoping that Eastern Memorial officials would be reasonable about his faith.

That was apparently too much to ask.

    "In a nutshell, I told them I miss my old church," Phillips recalls. "I went in to share my heart to a pastor. Knowing what might happen, but kind of saying, 'Maybe we can work something out?' I knew that wasn’t going to be the end of it because it was going to be a process. It wasn’t received well."

Some of the so-called "Christian" schools have these men-made rules.

Baylor University is in my backyard - one of my dad's colleagues interviewed there recently for a professorship. In addition to the job interview, they asked him questions like if he goes to church, what church he goes to, is he a sunday school teacher/deacon, what does he believe, etc, etc.

Seriously, if Baylor, or any other "Christian" university thinks they can truly know whether or not the people they are hiring are Christians, then they are very deceived. Even God says man looks at the outward appearance. And besides, it doesn't look good on Baylor that 1) Their last 8 or so Presidents are 3rd Degree Freemasons(at minimum), and 2) Even parts of their "religion" curriculums are pagan.

As for this coach - whatever happened to this...

2Cor 3:17  Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
