Have you heard the news story about the young man who refused to wrestle a girl at a high school wrestling meet? We are not talking about the ridiculous thing called “wrestling” on TV. This is the real sport, wrestling.
A young man in Iowa, Joel Northrup, a home-schooled sophomore, forfeited a match rather than wrestle a girl opponent. He said wrestling a girl would conflict with his religious beliefs.
Good for him.
If women and girls want to have a separate wrestling organization, fine. Well, not fine. Wrestling? I think that’s a bad idea either way… but at least have it be separated.
Inter-sex wrestling should only be private and after the marriage is witnessed by the Church.
But I support the young man, Joel Northrup, in his decision to refuse to wrestle a girl in a match like that.
