In 2004, the Arlington Burton's boy’s basketball team withdrew from the Texas private schools’ playoffs. Burton had been scheduled to play the west regional final on a Friday night. However, the school is a part of the Seventh-Day Adventists. Their religious beliefs preclude them from participating in activities from sundown to sundown—Friday to Saturday.
The executive board of the state’s private schools ruled that the game would not be moved to accommodate Burton. Consequently, Burton made the decision to not play.

I am not a Seventh Day Adventist, but I respect their convictions. I wish more of us Christians would stay so faithful to ours.
