Yeah, let's talk about those Christian morals, shall we?

It starts off fairly innocuously:

Gonzaga basketball players Josh Heytvelt and Theo Davis were arrested after police found marijuana and psychedelic mushrooms in their car during a traffic stop.

It's a little more interesting given the Canadian connection:

Davis is from Brampton, Ontario, ...

and then it gets downright amusing:

... but played most of his high school ball at Lutheran Christian Academy in Philadelphia.

Oh, my ... apparently, all those lessons on morals and virtues at Lutheran Christian didn't quite take. And there's a reason for that:

From last week, an article in the New York Times about sham prep schools whose only purpose is to give aspiring basketball players a bogus diploma to get them into college.

And what's so amusing about that? Well, the names of some of those bogus schools: Redemption Christian Academy, Lutheran Christian Academy, Genesis One Christian Academy, God's Academy, ...

Does anyone else see the common theme here?
