Student Has Diploma Withheld After Tebowing At Graduation

tebowingA 17-year-old in Florida had his diploma withheld after he celebrated his high school graduation by Tebowing on stage.

Chuck Shriner was disciplined for the move, not because it was slightly less timely than doing the Running Man, but because his mother, a teacher at the school, felt it would set a precedent for underclassmen. According to Chuck, she disciplined him by keeping his diploma and making him clean the gym.

“She was really mad,” he told Naples Daily News. “But I think it was worth it.”

Chuck told the newspaper his friends bribed him $5 to take a knee in front of the school’s principal.

  1. It wasn’t the school – it was his mother’s doing. No First Amendment problems here, just a very embarrassed Mom. Cleaning the gym will be good for his character.

  2. People might question what this is doing on a Jewish news site. Here is the answer: “Tebowing” is copying the on-field celebration of a footbal player named Tim Tebow. Mr. Tebow is a deeply religious Christian man and is not shy about celebrating his faith. These children are imitating the movement of a man of faith. When the US starts cracking down and elimating such minor dislays of religion it does not bode well for all religions including us Jews as well. Thats why its important to be made aware of the current trend towards religion – it affects us as well.

  3. #2- he wasnt doing it to b religious. he was dared to do it for 5 dollars. the only worship i see here is worshipping money. and possibly tim tebow… go jets

  4. YIDDEN, NEBECH DON’T UNDERSTAND. USE YOUR INHERENT FORESIGHT. IN MY OPINION, WE SHOULD NOT STAND IN THE WAY (IN GENERAL )OF ANY PUBLIC RELIGIOUS DISPLAYS (E.G. THEIR HOLIDAY TREES).TO DO SO WOULD BE VERY DETRIMENTAL TO US! THEIR PUBLIC DISPLAYS ALLOW US NOT TO HIDE THE MITZVOS WE DO– WE ARE ABLE TO PERFORM THEM, ACT THEM OUT WITHOUT FEAR.(WALKING WITH A LULAV IN THE STREET.)
