Those mean secularists at it again
15 October 2020 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Eric Lashaway who sadly was killed shortly after this film's release stars as a Christian basketball coach. When one of his players comes to him with a problem the two go off and pray together on the subject.

Had he taken him off school grounds and done that no one would have had much grounds to complain. A troubled youth came to an adult he trusted. But Lashaway stepped on some toes and the administration was handed a sword.

The school retains high priced attorney Corbin Bernsen and Lashaway gets Clifton Davis as his lawyer.

One particular thing that offended me with this film was Davis drawing a comparison with a transgender faculty member who transitioned and openly discusses the transition with students. But firing this Christian coach shows the school administration is following the liberal agenda.

As it happens my niece was part of a protest to stand by a transgender teacher at her school when said school fired the person. I can tell you transgender folks face a lot more discrimination than Christian faculty members. do.

One performance that was moving was that of Cathy Lee Crosby as Lashaway's mother. Her fans should see this.

But they'll have to go to fundamentalist church basements to do it.
