State University Reaches Compromise With Football Team Members On Wearing Cross Decal
Inquisitr reports that Arkansas State University officials have reached a compromise with member of the school's football team-- the Red Wolves-- who want to honor their recently murdered teammate and their recently deceased equipment manager by wearing a Christian cross with the men's initials on it on team helmets this season. (See prior posting.) So long as the student athletes purchase the cross decals themselves and personally place them on their helmets, the University will not object. Liberty Institute, which had written the University (full text of letter) complaining about its original decision to disallow the decals, issued a press release praising the University's decision last Wednesday to now allow them.
