There’s a controversy in full swing at Kountze High School in Texas. Folks have mixed feelings about the school’s cheerleaders displaying pre-game banners with Bible verses on them. On October 18th, Hardin County State District Judge Steve Thomas ruled that the cheerleaders can continue displaying the banners until a hearing slated for June, saying the cheerleaders are allowed to exercise “their constitutional and statutory rights at all football games and other school sporting events.”
The courts will eventually decide the constitutionality of the so called “Bible banners,” but should Bible verses (or verses from any other religious book) be allowed as part of a united display of free speech.
Do you think these cheerleaders should be allowed to display banners with Bible verses at official public school football games? Would you feel the same way if they quoted the Qur’an?
