Christian Banners illegal

Kountze, Texas High School cheerleaders painted Christian verses on the run through banners used at the start of football games. This very normal expression of free speech received an objection from the Freedom from Religion Foundation.  The immediate reaction from the school superintendent was to ban the Bible verses. For this action, i would be pleased to nominate him for the rubber backbone award.

The Liberty Institue, a Plano, Texas firm filed suit against the School District. They represented the cheerleaders and their parents. As a result a restraining order was issued allowing the cheerleaders to continue using scripture on their banners. The Attorney General for the state of Texas got involved and the governor as well. A Houston judge ruled that Bible verses are OK on their banners.

A facebook page started in support of the cheerleaders went from 16.000 to over 45,000  supporters

Even though this bagan in 2012, it is a reminder that we must always stand up and be counted. I will call the High School and wish the cheerleaders well. The contact information for the school  is shown below.

Kountze High Schoolol , 1498 FM 1293 Road Kountze, Texas 77625  409-246-3474
