I believe it would be this one, as quoted from the story: In a statement to FoxNews.com, an Our Lady of Sorrows official said the school had no choice but to forfeit because it has a strict policy prohibiting participation in co-ed athletics and believes in "forming and educating boys and girls" separately. Teaching our boys to treat ladies with deference, we choose not to place them in an athletic competition where proper boundaries can only be respected with difficulty, the statement read. "Our school aims to instill in our boys a profound respect for women and girls."
While I don't subscribe to the same beliefs, I certainly don't count their actually standing up for what they believe in to be wimpy.

(Everything starts with slashing the size and scope of the federal government.)
If separately educating boys and girls was that important to them then why did they join a league that’s co-ed? Really it shouldn’t be that tough.

I never used the word wimpy, for the record, that was another poster.
I read that in the article as well, and I am left with the same question - what moral belief is being compromised?
A belief in forming and educating boys and girls separately doesn’t rise (IMHO) to the level of a moral belief. And playing a game against a team with a female 2nd basemen just doesn’t seem to negatively impact one’s profound respect for women and girls.
