Sometimes who is right and who is wrong isn’t so easy to judge. Gray areas call for ethical discussion. For example, in Cincinnati last week students from two rival football teams goaded each other as fans do. St. Xavier won the close game when Colerain missed a last-second field goal. The St. Xavier fans chanted, “We’ve got Jesus.” The Colerain coach thought their chant was way out of place.
Does he seem right?
Later St. Xavier students blogged that Colerain fans had taunted them for being an all-boys school with the chant, “We’ve got girls.” Other teams often insult the Xavier students with gay slurs. The school has strict rules about what its students can chant. “We’ve got Jesus” is permissible. The students have a case, too.
