Youth Pastor Smites; Student Can't Dodge His "Balls"

LIBERTY, Missouri (AP) -- A youth minister was charged with assault for allegedly knocking down a 16-year-old boy and kicking him in the groin after taking a head shot from the teen in a dodgeball game.

David M. Boudreaux, 27, was charged Wednesday with one count of third-degree assault. According to court documents, the incident happened in February at Crescent Lake Christian Academy. Authorities said the teen missed Boudreaux with one throw but then knocked the youth minister's glasses off with the next.

The boy apologized, authorities said, but Boudreaux pushed him backward, and when the teen got up again Boudreaux kicked him in the groin and left.

The teen suffered whiplash and post-concussion syndrome and had blood in his urine after being kicked, according to court records. Boudreaux later apologized, prosecutors said. Jeanne D. Hewitt, administrator of Crescent Lake Christian Academy, said Boudreaux had been placed on administrative leave.

How come you weird Americans play such barbaric games with your kids, but then as adults have to dress up in metal cages and helmets to play a bad version of Rugby?

I'm SOOO glad that dodgball never crossed the pond. Childhood has enough humiliation without it.

loving your work

Another example of Christians forfeiting the Gospel for below the belt pride.

I once had to play dodgeball with a bunch of "emotionally distured" teens at camp. The staff somehow thought it would be theraputic... boy were they wrong.
