    I've been hearing about this Tebowing stuff lately. I don't really get it. I thought he was praying...? Why are kids emulating that if they don't know why he's doing it to begin with?

    Oh no!!! Surely not prayer in schools. What a horrible idea! Heaven forbid that someone should be offended. Ranks right up there with teaching sex education and teaching evolution. [​IMG]

    Quote:As long as there are pop quizzes and math tests in schools, there will be some form of prayer in schools. Might not be your specific form, but it's a personal thing anyway.

    But I wonder if the boys realize that that's what Tebow is doing. Praying.

    They were suspended because they are blocking the hallways when they do this. Two of them had already been told to not block the hallways. BTW I think they are just mocking the gesture and not praying.

    agreed. The kids weren't doing it as prayer, unless you count homage to Tebow as a religion?

    is another article about it. And the boy who said it said it was a moment of silence in honor of Tebow.
    ------------------
    “It was basically just a tribute to Tim Tebow,” Carroll Connor, 17, who planned the prank with his brother and friends, told The Post.
    “It was more than a religious thing. There was some of that involved obviously, because he prays. I guess it was basically like a moment of silence

    ----------------------


    They also chose to do it in a crowded hallway between classes and created a jam. Even though they had been warned before not to block up the hallways. Though, in my opinion, kids that old shouldn't need to be warned not to block the hallways.

    http://espn.go.com/new-york/nfl/story/_/id/7357978/high-school-athletes-suspended-tebowing is an interview with one of the students.

    The boys in several different interviews say that it was a tribute to Tebow. So, no, it wasn't a discrimination against religion.

    I don't know why the original poster thought this was such a good thing, but I only have one question..... who or what is Tebow?
