Two New York high school students were suspended for a day from school for breaking a school policy that disallowed “Tebowing”.

Tebowing, the craze sweeping the country, is when a person gets down on one knee, bows their head, places their elbow on their knee and rests their bowed head on their fist.  It is a “tribute” to Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow, who openly displays his faith by performing that gesture often, and is not shy about professing his faith.   Thousands of people across America have Tebowed in honor of this outspoken young man.   But some New York high school students were suspended for it,  School officials at Riverhead High School in Long Island said students Tebowing in the hallways created a “fire hazard” and kept other students from getting to class.  They claim is was not religious discrimination.
