The scripture talks about headship in the Christian Congregation and the line of command is God-Jesus-Man-Woman-BUT- this was applicable to what was done in the Christian Congregation-NOT at a basketball game at school. That is carrying religious ferver alittle too far-you then would have to expect every other basketball group you ever planned to meet to recognize your Religion as the Ruling Religion of Basketball-it's just too far. In the congregation if you believe and in the home if you carry it there. Anything else in America encroaches upon the rights of everyone not your Religious Belief Structure. Is this problem trying to approach a separation between Church and State problem? Hmmmm, that serious, huh?

Is there a Union for female basketball referees?
