Just plain wrong . . .

Just read a news article, and just had to blog about it. Here's the article link:

http://rivals.yahoo.com/highschool/blog/prep_rally/post/Muslim-headscarf-forces-teen-girl-to-bench-in-ho?urn=highschool-310716

The story is about a high school muslim girl who was forced to sit on the bench by a referee during the first half of a game because of her headscarf that she wore. Is this ridiculous or what!??! He claimed it was a safety hazard. Someone should have told my grandma that the head scarfs she used to wear were a safety hazard. Come on people! Get with it.

The girl was allowed to play the second half after being given a religious exemption.

If we want a peaceful world, we are going to have to learn how to live at peace and in tolerance with each other in our day to day lives. Until we do that, well . . .
