The only thing that religion and sex should have in common is the phrase…’Oh.. God’. At first I was amused at what BYU did to its star athlete Brandon Davies. Apparently religion and a contract signed by Davies as a BYU player got in his way of performing on the basketball court. Just to keep this short and to the point, apparently it’s the only college in the nation where sex is a no-no. Well once again folks religion did what religion does. It cut off its nose to spite its face. Apparently this is the only kid on the team who could get them to the Final Four. For those who don’t follow sports, making it to the Final Four gives your school millions of dollars in advertising, not to mention the cold hard cash. According to Jeff Goodman, the school received more than $650 million in free publicity in 2006, not to mention the actual dollars the school and league earns by virtue of getting to the Final Four. I told you that to tell you this. BYU stands for Brigham Young University. Brigham Young was the man responsible for the Mormon religion. This is a religion that says it’s alright for men to take on several wives, sometimes as young as 12 and 13 years old. The same religion kicked a young adult off of a basketball team because he had sex. What does this have to do with sports or athletics? Well, not a whole lot, unless you throw in that a basketball team was involved. Sometimes life is stranger than fiction. I just thought I’d bring it to you.
