"On the question of athletics, the true extremes are worship of the body and contempt for the body. These views come quickly into play when a school board is deciding whether the school should field a football team or build a gymnasium or sponsor a girl's volleyball team. One contingent maintains that the school was established as a school and that the reason God have boys and girls legs and feet was so that they could walk their brains to school. On the other side, equally extreme, are those who are dangerously close to sacrificing a heifer to the great god Football in their next halftime celebration. Given the quasi-religiouis fervor that grips many of these people, it is surprising that the Supreme Court has not yet struck down high school football programs as a clear violation of the so-called separation of church and state"
