“We’re going to be there game in, game out,” D’Aubin said. “We love Christ; we love LSU. No, we don’t want anything.”

Whoever did the Photoshop also ruined the picture, making it blurry and washed out.

Loser.

[ School spokesman Herb Vincent told the site the school altered the image to prevent other students from being offended by the weekly Geaux-Mail newsletter. ]

However, didn’t care about offending these young men or other Christians.

Bama = Alabama Crimson Tide (LSU's next football game)

Or were you just being facetious? It can be hard to tell when it comes to sports...

If the magazine/paper??? whatever, can’t print an honest, neat, picture of its students representing it in a school sponsored event, how can you trust it to write or print ANYTHING without raising an eyebrow.

This crap gets worse everyday and has ceased to be funny or newsworthy - time to wrest this country back from the radical SOB’s

Effin Liars.

I’d like to see the edit out photo’s of the following:

Women wearing beehive keeper clothing(Burkas)
Men wearing Turbans
Men wearing symbols with swords(Seiks)
Men wearing curtains wrapped on their heads(Turbans)
Men in Bed Sheets(Robes)
Women in Bed Sheets(Robes)
Anyone wearing the star of David.
Anyone displaying their love for Buddha, The Dali Lama, etc.
Hari Krishna’s

The truth is: “The only unacceptable display of religion are those of Christianity”....

Besides a Crucifix, the Cross is the most offensive symbol ever to be introduced to human culture; an explicit symbol of Truth in a world of darkness.

The only ones offended by crosses on outerwear are the members of the middle-eastern death cult. It reminds them of the time when Christians with crosses on their clothes taught them a lesson.

LSU has now stepped in it for a lot of folks down here, they had better hope this doesn't go wide spread.

"It was just a straight sports communications message, no politics involved, no religion," Vincent said.

They just don't get it! Their "NO RELIGION" stance is actually THEIR RELIGION of secular humanism! It is their set of beliefs that secular humanism is superior to Christianity or any other religion.

Apparently the school has no problem offending Christians.

All Christian alumnae need to stop donations to the school immediately. And that goes for every other PC school that is banning Chick-Fil-A.

Amazingly they don’t want students to be offended. I bet they bend over backwards for gays and offending straights though

The Board of Supervisors and coaches don’t want anything competing with the almighty swoosh of the god Nike. Football is our first and only religion according to high priest Les Miles.
