Never on Monday - Sports vs. church

PROVO, UTAH -- For some parents, sending their kids off on Monday nights to participate in city basketball, soccer, baseball or softball leagues conflicts with one of their religious mandates.

And the conflict has recreation directors in some of Utah's smaller cities feeling a little heat. The issue was discussed last month when recreation directors from throughout Utah gathered for their annual meetings in St. George.

Monday evening is the time that members of Utah's predominant religion, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, are encouraged to reserve for "family home evening" - a night of family-oriented activities and lessons.

This article explores some of the opinions of different city officials and citizens of the state of Utah.
