Catholic Football Fans Shout "We Got Jesus" at Opposing Team

They should have added "and MARY too".

I know I should take this more seriously perhaps but it made me laugh. See ‘We’ve got Jesus’ chant angers losing football coach

I thought this was interesting :

The sad reality of this situation is that our entire faculty has absolutely handcuffed us in terms of what we are and aren’t allowed to chant because they are so worried about our public relations,” one fan told the newspaper. “The chants that our student section chant are nothing compared to what the teams we play are able to stay us. How about you report on the constant anti-gay chants we have to deal with week in and week out?”

Now that would be interesting to explore. Why would they be shouting anti gay things at the Catholic players and fans. Or is more likely this is sex abuse related and something akin to "Yall are a bunch of child molestors" like we see on the net. If so how often does that happen. Or is it that because it's a all boy school and thus is "gay". Or a combo of both?

An interesting angle that would have been interesting to explore more.
