Anti-Christian Bigots Target Clemson Football Program

Something called the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) has sent a demand letter to Clemson University regarding its football program. It appears head coach Dabo Swinney has had the unmitigated audacity to hire a team chaplain and have Bible studies. Three privately funded buses took the team to a church. Even more outrageous, three players spoke of their faith in Jesus Christ at a Fellowship of Christian Athletes breakfast. The real horror is that their teammates heard about that faith in person. FFRF is a meddling group from Wisconsin intent on eliminating faith from the public square. Interestingly there isn’t a single Clemson player speaking out against Swinney’s inclusion of Christianity in the football program.
I don't understand why we tolerate this sort of thing.  This country was settled and developed around the idea of the free expression of religious principals and the free association with like minded Christians and Jews.  That is why we say that this is a country founded on Judeo-Christian values.  If you don't like it, you need to move to another country.  You CANNOT restrict the religious proclivities of a people.  You are going against the very basis of this country.
