    Judge rules for Kountze cheerleaders in Bible banner suit

    AUSTIN — A judge says an East Texas school district policy barring cheerleaders from quoting biblical scripture on banners at high school football games appears to violate their free speech rights.

    KFDM television in Beaumont reports that District Judge Steve Thomas issued an injunction allowing the Kountze High School cheerleaders to continue displaying such banners pending the outcome of a lawsuit about the matter. He previously granted a temporary restraining order allowing the practice to continue.

    The school district ordered the cheerleaders to stop quoting Bible verses after receiving a complaint from the Freedom From Religion Foundation. The group says it received a complaint from an atheist attending a game who felt the school was promoting Christianity.

    Thoughts?

    it will be overturned if real judges get to it.

    if they take state money they can't do that.

    How are the cheerleaders violating The Constitution?



    Do they not have 1st Amendment rights as well?
