How Can Muslims Play Football?

After all, they use a pigskin in the game. But if it gets them a chance to claim to be persecuted and victimized -- or make lots of money in the NFL after getting a free-ride to college courtesy of infidel taxpayers, they are willing to overlook it, I guess

Three former New Mexico State University football players – all Muslims – on Monday sued the university and coach Hal Mumme, alleging they were dismissed from the team because of their religious beliefs.

The federal lawsuit was filed by the American Civil Liberties Union on behalf of Mu'Ammar Ali and brothers Anthony and Vincent Thompson. The lawsuit alleges religious discrimination and violations of the athletes' right to freely exercise their religion.

In response to the allegations, New Mexico State hired an Albuquerque law firm to investigate and the law firm concluded the football program had not engaged in religious discrimination against the three Muslim athletes.

The investigation by Albuquerque law firm Miller Stratvery found that the players were released from the team based on their performance and attitudes, not because of religion. The probe included interviews with the football coaching staff, athletics department personnel and student-athletes.

Simonson at the time questioned the fairness of the investigation.

“I think it's very troubling that the university could not find any basis for these allegations whatsoever when three very sincere individuals came forward with such serious allegations,” he said. “It really raises questions in my mind about the university's commitment to diversity and racial equality and issues of equality.”

In other words, the only good investigation is one that finds what the ACLU and its fellow-travelers claim to be true. Any other finding, no matter how supported by the facts, is troubling and indicative of a lack of commitment to diversity and equality. I guess a commitment to truth simply pales beside those two.

But I have to wonder – given the status of pigs in the eyes of Muslims, how can they play football at all? After all, it isn’t called a pigskin for nothing.

Maybe the coach was just looking out for their spiritual best interest – both by putting them off the team, and by encouraging Christian brotherhood (which unlike the Muslim Brotherhood, won’t kidnap you, kill you, or force you to convert at gunpoint).

You Texans don't know much about football, do you?

Oh, I know a great deal about football -- though I'll agree that my Houston Texans didn't look like they did last season.
