Religious Views on High School Athletic Uniforms
Religion appears in many places, including government and the courts. Legislation in the state of Georgia provides an interesting example--see here. High school athletes are typically not allowed to personalize their uniforms, however, should they be allowed to do so, a new bill under consideration by the state legislature would ensure that students would not be discriminated against for personalizing their uniforms in religious ways. We see how religion and religious expression is not allowed without any type of constraint. Religious persons and groups frequently use legal means to assert rights or deny the rights of others. Much of this occurs without a lot of media attention, but it nonetheless is out there and impacts the way people live their religious lives.
