Southern States; Christian life; Football; Prayer
Sometimes I am amazed by the news from the world of sport, but most of the time that's because I forget where I am. The recent flap over the Supreme Court ruling on prayer at high school football games is a case in point. This should not surprise me at all as for the past thirty-five years I have lived in, or all too near, the Bible Belt.
