Feb. 15, 2012

Administrators at Riverton High School in Long Island, N.Y., suspended four students for imitating Tim Tebow’s game-time prayer ritual, aptly named “Tebowing.” The administration said the students were blocking off hallways, causing a distraction, but critics claim religious intolerance.
