Like many, I have heard about the attempt to bar a Jewish religious high school team in Texas from the basketball playoffs of their religious school league. The conflict is that the league has scheduled the game on a Friday night when the Jewish students observe their sabbath. This seems grossly unfair. Why can't the league be flexible by a few hours. After all, what would Jesus do about the Beren basketball team request for just a few hours? I think he would be happy to help a neighbor especially one requesting so little. I urge the league to change the policy.
Editors Note: The league relented after a lawsuit was filed and moved the game up a few hours to Friday afternoon.
