MADISON, Wis., September 11, 2018 /Christian Newswire/ – Before a Louisiana high school football game, two Benton High School students were told they had to remove Christian logos from the end zones. The two students left the field and did not help those who removed the logos.

The “Christ Fit Gym” logos included a cross and Bible verse. A business, Christ Fit Gym, paid the football booster club $3,500 for the 2018-19 season to display the logos.

In February, Americans United for Separation of Church and State filed a federal lawsuit against the school district. They complained the district promoted Christianity and was trying to convert students.

“In the United States, we should rejoice with kids who want to follow Bible standards,” states 4 Winds USA President Steve McConkey. “Instead, we are trying to erase Jesus Christ from our public schools. Recent research says 20% of students in college have considered suicide. This is not a time to remove God from public schools.”

McConkey is the founder and president of 4 Winds USA, a ministry standing up for Christian athletes. He has fought the Freedom From Religion atheists, also located in Madison, Wisconsin, after they attacked top university football teams and other teams in the USA for Christian activity.

In 2003, McConkey started fighting the International Olympic Committee for allowing transgenders in the Olympics. McConkey was the only one who stood against this publicly. Recently, the IOC reversed many of their transgender and intersex policies by making the testosterone levels go down to five nanomoles instead of ten.

Steve McConkey is the president of 4 WINDS USA, a ministry that stands up for Christian athletes. He regularly appears on worldwide radio and is frequently quoted in global articles. Steve has a Master of Science-Public Health from Western Kentucky University with honors and a BS-Public Health from Minnesota State University, Mankato with honors. Steve and his wife started in world-class track and field ministries in 1981 and began standing up for all athletes in 2014. CHRISTIAN NEWSWIRE
