University Tells Team To Remove Memorial Cross From Helmets
This season, the Arkansas State University football team decided to honor their recently murdered teammate and their former equipment manager who recently died in a car crash by wearing a Christian cross with the men's initials on it on their helmets. However, as reported yesteday by Fox News, University counsel told the team to remove the emblems after receiving a complaint that the team's wearing them violates the Establishment Clause. Counsel said that alternatively the players could change the Christian Cross to a "Plus sign" to eliminate the problem.
