My disdain for the politically correct liberal asshats who are in control of public education in America grows by the day. As Attorney General Greg Abbott tweeted, this over-reaction to a spontaneous and joyous display of Christian faith is disgraceful:

COLUMBUS, Texas — An act of faith has cost an area track team a win and a chance to advance to the state championships.
This past weekend, the Columbus High School Mighty Cardinals had just won a boys relay race when a runner’s final gesture got them disqualified.
As he was crossing the finish line, Derrick Hayes pointed up to the sky. His father believes he was giving thanks in a gesture to God.
“It was a reaction,” father KC Hayes said. “I mean you’re brought up your whole life that God gives you good things, you’re blessed.”
Columbus ISD Superintendent Robert O’Connor said the team had won the race by seven yards. It was their fastest race of the year.
Can you imagine that this would have happened if the kid had instead turned towards the East and went down into a prayer of thanks to Allah? I can guarantee you that this wouldn’t have happened. And you know I’m right.
