    Former coach of the year fired from Christian school for out-of-wedlock pregnancy | Prep Rally - Yahoo! Sports

    I'm kinda torn on this one. She knew the rules and the school had every right to fire her.

    But is just having a right to do something make it the right thing to do?

    Jesus had nothing to do with any decision made by anyone in this, it had everything to do with appearing moral rather than being moral.

    One cannot help but wonder the same thing about abortion.

    In those cases, the respone will be "the right to choose belongs in whole to the person who makes the choice; as such, you are in no position to judge"

    Same response applies to this as well.

    Given her credentials(coach of the year, science teacher) I am surprised the other schools are not beating her door down as we post!

    She may have to take government assistance for awhile, then she will lead another school over the backs of her former school in volleyball in no time!

    So, who actually lost here?

    3 And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst, 4 They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act. 5 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou? 6 This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not. 7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. 8 And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground. 9 And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. 10 When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee? 11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.

    What is highlighted in RED is the key here.

    The school was worried about what example was being set with a pregnant, unmarried woman.

    But what kind of example are they setting with their comdenation and intolerance? :confused:

    The morality of an action is independent of the moral character of the the person that undertakes that action.

    One that everyone should have ingrained deeply into their souls:
    Actions have consequences, and while you are free to take whatever actions you might choose, you then must accept responsibility for those actions and, similarly, accept that you must live with those consequnces.

    At my youngest's school there are a few rules...One is 'pants with holes in the knees will not be tolerated and the child will be sent home.'
    Another is "Caps can only be worn outdoors and the brim must face forward'.

    Teachers, parents and child must sign off on these rules.

    If the rules are broken, there are consequences.

    This is not about condemnation or intolerance, it is about following the rules.
