Discussion: Ridge Hooks comment

WOW! Did I attempt to take away your right to religious beliefs? You say hello, don't do it. Well If I am an atheist, Muslim, Jew and I chose to go play in a softball tournament do I have to succumb to religious theatrics that I disagree with? Tell you what. Next tournament I will gather all the Atheists together and we will hold hands and in unison say "We all believe that religion is a superstition and that more people have been killed in the name of it than any other reason." I'm sure that Ridge and all the other understanding Christians will understand and have nothing to say about it right? That would be just standing up for our beliefs just like Ridge so I'm sure there would be no problem. As for SPA being a private organization that may be correct. However, by having teams made up of players from all over the country with different beliefs, I feel that religion is being forced down people's throats.

If you don't know what Ridge's religious beliefs are, you must not have been around him very much. He leads group prayer a lot. I have much respect for him and all he has done for softball. However, I feel that promoting your religious beliefs at organizations such as softball events are in my opinion, wrong. I'm sure that the group prayer circle they sometimes do is o.k. for some people, but in a group this large, there are also people with other beliefs (and none beliefs) who are given the choice of either participating or walking off. Yes, they have that choice but how does that make them feel? In my opinion, it is no different than one of the teams saying "lets get together, hold hands, and chant "there is no God", or "praise Alla". Your beliefs and non-beliefs should be personal. Not everyone feels the same as you. When you stamp "To God be the Glory" on all of your awards and paperwork, you are offending some of those who are not of the same beliefs.

If there are any AA/AAA teams out there going to Phoenix in October and have had an outfielder go down, I am looking for a team. Sixty two, good glove, good speed, good hitter.
