A Georgia high school football coach was fired after he held a baptism service for 20 of his players on school grounds last month, according to a report.
The superintendent of Tattnall County High School announced coach Isaac Ferrell’s firing after a video uploaded to the team’s official Facebook page showed players being baptized in a tub by a local pastor.
Footage shows Pastor Gary Few directing players individually to sit in a large black tub of water before saying to them, “I baptize you now, my brother, in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.”
The pastor then ducks their heads under the water while surrounding players cheer in support.
The Oct. 23 incident outraged some community members, eventually leading one to inform a group called The Freedom from Religion Foundation. (Read more from “High School Football Coach Fired for On-Field Baptism Ceremony” HERE)
