Note the word in red. The government has done nothing in this case so the First Amendment does not apply.



It's a federally protected right....


For your further education I left the above intact. Again, note the word in red.




What part of a federally protected right, for all Americans, did you fail to understand? What part of, Congress makes laws which apply to us all, did you fail to understand?


Again, according to your reasoning, the KKK should still have free reign to restirct Black people's basic First Amendment rights down South, because the KKK isn't a governmental agency, or an arm of Congress.

Because playing Mesa Prep would require competing against a team featuring a girl, Our Lady of Sorrows decided that playing the game would violate the school's mission to teach boys and girls separately, as the school made clear in a statement on Thursday. The separation of the sexes is a key tenet of the Society of St. Pius X, a separatist branch of the Catholic Church of which Our Lady of Sorrows is a part. Link


 


It is a stupid game and they have the right to go by their standards.  The "equality in everything" crowd should take a deep beath and apply their agenda to something more meaningful.




Like equality for chickens!




KFC treats all chickens equally.

Hello,



Not to yank on any chains here but if a girl is going to play on the boys baseball team then the 6'-8'' center on the boys basketball team should be able to play on the girls volleyball team, right? Didn't Annika Sorenstam play a couple to tournaments on the men's PGA tour? We know what happened there. I also find it not acceptable for a trans-gendered athlete to participate in the Olympics. My $.02



love

Good works will never produce faith, but faith will always produce good works. loveontheair

I think there are some sports that have quite a bit of "overlap," so to speak, and many members of both sexes can play.


Others, not so much. Girls with the physical capabilites to play football on par with males, for example, do exist, but they are very rare.

Hello,



I agree. I was on a co-ed bowling team, does that count?

The reason Paige Sultzbach played on the boy's baseball team was because there was no girl's softball team. She has said she'd rather play softball. There is a boy playing on a girl's field hockey team in New York because there is no boy's field hockey team. Link

Mytmouse:


"According to your reasoning, Klansmen should still be free to forbid Black folks from exercising basic First Amendment rights down south -- so long as they KKK aren't operating in an offical government capacity."


And just how would the KKK effect that without violating civil and statute law?

You have the right to not have the GOVERNMENT interfer with your freedom of speech. That's what the Constitution says.

There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.   Isaac Asimov

He invoked the Constitution, not civil law. He did so in an attempt to say that someone cannot disagree with, and voice that opinion, when someone believes something differently. He was actually trying to stifle my freedom of speech.
