wrestler who refused to grapple with girl explains decision
An Iowa high school wrestler wrest gave up a match with a girl in a state championship last week, he said he opposed violence against a girl in a \"compromise\" position that such a match could lead \"Wrestling is a fighting sport that sometimes becomes violent and you are put into action and strength that is included,\" said Joel notrapp, a sophomore . \". \"I just don\'t think it\'s right for boys and girls to wrestle in this way. Notrupp\'s father, Jamie, said the decision to give up was made by his son alone, but it reflected the Christian faith of the family. \"Although there is no specific scripture that deals with wrestling with girls, the Christian principle in the Bible is to treat women with respect and dignity,\" said Jamie Nautilus, \"In some cases, don\'t think of them as objects that are defeated on the wrestling mat, and don\'t be touched or hit. Joel Northrop of Linn On Thursday, March, the match against the new student Cassy Herkelman from Cedar Falls was confiscated, which was subsequently advanced by default. Both Northrop and Heckman lost in the subsequent games and were eliminated before the final. But notrupp said on Wednesday that even if it meant giving up the state championship, he would give up playing against a girl. \"I will give up this opportunity,\" he said . \" \"Whether it\'s a final or any other game or region, I\'m not going to wrestle with a girl. Nutrap said women should face other girls when they fall wrest hands. Does Christianity support gay children now? I don\'t see any problem unless she is fat. What? What are you talking about? ? ? Girls, if you\'re like most of us, it\'s hard to find a pretty decent man date, why not wrestle? Will be interesting. . . . Lol. The best two of the three waterfalls? I must agree with the child, leaving aside the crazy Christian gibberish. I know he came from his choice, but it was a close contact movement and she clearly knew that there would be no problem as long as he remained professional. You\'re a winner, Joel. God bless you. A gentleman won\'t fight a lady. Young people. God bless your moral decision. You have a lot of value and men can\'t plan women\'s group sports, can they? ? ? Why should they be allowed to play in the men\'s team? This equal nonsense is out of control. Come on man . . . . . Think so. . . If she had a ball on the mat, it would be wrestling like she had a ball. . . I had to fight a dirt in several races. . Once I had to beat my opponent and win a tortamite game for my weight but I didn\'t give up. . . This is a pile of rubbish. . . . When you\'re on the mat. . You will not come back, male or female, large or small, Muslim, Catholic or Jewish, you are wrest hands! ! ! So like one! ! ! The child is a coward and is obviously afraid of losing to a girl. Ironically, he may beat his wife when he gets a wife himself. What is refreshing is that there are still real men who are not afraid to state their beliefs and support them-even if it is not good for them. He showed more maturity and integrity than those who chose to make fun of his decision.

My son was also Wrestling and when he had to wrestle with a girl of his own weight, he had a hard time. He said that he was confused about where he could not explore or what he could not. He ended up losing because he was overwhelmed by what to do and what not to do. Chuck Norris will break both of them in half on the mat! If they are in the proper movement, the Bible does not mention the massacre of women and children by Israelis [ Under the guidance of the Lord He\'s worried about wrestling? Said Ron well! Read the whole book. Don\'t start to take a piecemeal approach to support your unfounded argument. Truth-a better view! Yeah, no. This is not a distortion of the Bible, truth. There is no pardon: to slaughter all the people, even the baby who is nursing, and then say: yes, all the barbaric acts of the early years? Ignore the final order = D \"truth\"-the next time you pretend that you are the one supporting your ignorant comments, you may want to remember to change your name. I think this can be summed up in two words: an unwelcome erection. Can you say \"nailed to the mat? So let me figure this out. . . By \"fumbling and bashing\"/\"I don\'t think he has anything to do with the \'religious value\' or the position of compromise, you can not respect your\" man \". If it was these positions that bothered him, his religion would keep him from wrestling with men, as two boys entered a compromise position! He just doesn\'t want to get ass-ass by a girl. It\'s a tough situation-shouldn\'t there be a men\'s and women\'s movement? I don\'t think that\'s fair because in most areas women are less representative. Should we give up the men\'s and women\'s restrooms and dressing rooms and act like mature people instead of laughing at teenagers? Is it possible, but is it practical? ( Ps review-look up the dictionary) I think your opinion is wrong. Girls and boys play softball, baseball, hockey, basketball, but should not play sports that are in full contact. He has the right to believe. If people don\'t understand, maybe it\'s because they have nothing to do with Jesus Christ. He just doesn\'t want to be kicked off by a girl. . . . Maybe it wasn\'t his ass that put him on the grass and she would put him on the berries and put a hat on him. She broke his bone. What is the relationship between Christians and two young people who participate in sports? Seems to be misled. I hope the young man chose the principle he really believed in. For a young woman who clearly has a sporting talent, how insulting it is to reject a sporting spirit contest. I hope both children will agree. One is male and the other is female. They are not young people engaged in sports. The big difference is not just two players playing. It\'s a boy wrestling with a girl on a mat. Don\'t you understand! ! ? ?
