No. They didn't play because losing to girls would have been humiliating.

More like the lads find it hard to run seeing the opposite sex in gym stuff.
That was another weapon in their arsenal we had no chance....

I know they are kids but.....

Pussies.

Play and lose, win. Talk mess and put your game face on. You might even get a date.

Christians.....

Well we don't know that the kids didn't want to play, I would bet they did. Well at least most of them.

It was a school admin that made the call it seems.

Dick Buckingham to be precise, at least that is what the article says.

Hmm...

It's not that a big of a deal really, they are over-reacting, whats the big deal playing against two girls? I mean soccer is a girls sport anyways. . .

It's not like it was a boys team versus a girls team it was a team with a couple of girls on it. If concerns of political correctness and bad publicity was there main concern, refusing to play a team because they had a couple of girls on it probably wasn't the best idea.

yes yes,
This couldn't possible have anything to do with their true religious beliefs.
Has to be fear of girls...

We want to teach our men that honor of ladies is just not in sports. We struggle how to teach that if we’re allowing them to play against young ladies in a competitive game."

So, I guess that rules out chess as well.

Those poor kids, to be subject to that kind of crap. Girls just aren't meant to play sports. God said so.

I have no problem with that. Especially if there is no boys team for them to play on.

I am more than willing to say it has to do with their true religious beliefs, that is why it is stupid...

Your beliefs won't allow you to play a game against a team with girls on it?

could you imagine volleyball or basketball with a guy who is 6'5. would make the news. Never would be allowed.

Sounds like the school admin is an idiot. not news worthy though.

There is a physical aspect to it. You are allowed to muscle someone off the ball with your shoulder or body or keep them from getting to it and other things.

There is a physical aspect to women's soccer as well.

Yeah I was saying there is a physical aspect to the sport in general where strength could be a factor.
