Teens need counseling after exposure to God

School officials said these students' discomfort should be treated with respect. But the damage may already be done; psychological counselors are being rushed in for all students who suffered emotionally from standing quietly while Borden uttered expletives like "Thank you, God" and "In Jesus' name."
This is simply another sign of America's growing hostility toward Christianity, or more precisely, toward Christ. His words made the Pharisees wriggle 2,000 years ago, and they still make folks wriggle today. I've probably said this before, but it's so true: Humans have trouble believing in God because doing so means (a) someone else is in control; (b) they must be held accountable for their every action; and (c) they must learn to think of someone besides themselves.

I assume most parents and administrators want coaches who will help steer kids in the right direction. That implies that these same people want coaches who possess some sort of moral compass and believe that right and wrong aren't just feelings, but facts. Thus, these coaches must have a moral source (for morality without a source beyond the self is dangerous). So why aren't coaches whose source is God allowed to acknowledge Him?

And why are people so intent on shielding this young generation from the truth of God? This culture has no problem exposing kids to gore, casual sex and all sorts of self-destructive philosophies. But try to tell them about God, and you just might ruin them. Might actually make them use their brains to figure out why they're here.
