Was a high school cross country runner disqualified from a state championship meet because there was a Bible verse embroidered on his headband?
Georgia Congressman Douglas Collins seems to think so.
“Religious expression being squashed right here in the Ninth District,” the Republican lawmaker tweeted. “This is outrageous.”
Collins was referring an incident that occurred on Nov. 7th at the Georgia 5-A cross country state championship.
Third place winner John Green was stripped of his victory just moments after crossing the finish line.
