Dear parents and friends,
I am deeply troubled by the fact that the Parks and Recreation Department in our county is forcing children and parents to make up games on Wednesday night. This is a time of religious gathering and forcing children to play during this time directly infringes on our rights to worship freely.It is religious discrimination at the highest level. At this time, if you do not play your makeup game on Wednesday night, then your team is forced to forfeit the game. Why can these games not be moved to Friday night or Saturday night, or moved to the end of the season? There are plenty of times when the fields are open and these games could be made up other than Wednesday night. This is so unfair to the children who have worked diligently in preparing for this season. Not to mention that we all paid the same fees to play and they should be allowed to do just that. At a time when so many of our religious freedoms are being taken and tested, we must protect the few that we do have. I am asking you that you prayerfully consider joining this petition and standing up for the liberty to attend church without being forced to take a loss on your season!!
