In the Lone Star State, a community has been embroiled in a prolonged legal battle over the right to display Bible verses on cheerleader-made banners at football games. This week, a Texas judge ruled that the school's cheerleaders can indeed use those verses on their banners.
The judge ruled that no law “prohibits cheerleaders from using religious-themed banners at school sporting events.”
Regardless of where you stand on the issue of the separation of church and state or prayer in public schools, this is a fascinating illustration of the differences between those who want public schools to not be associated with religion and those who believe religion -- Christianity, specifically -- should be welcomed in our schools.
