TX Court Sides With Cheerleaders Who Held Biblical Signs at Games
The Texas Supreme Court ruled in favor of high school cheerleaders who claimed that their free speech was being violated by their school district when it told them they couldn’t display banners with Bible verses at football games.
The justices determined their ruling was still necessary even though the Kountze school district later allowed the banners.
The court said the decision will protect the future display of religious-themed signs because the district has argued it retains the right to restrict them.
The banners featured some Biblical verses such as, “I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me."
Texas Congressman Brian Babin (R) released a statement praising the decision.
"At a time when religious liberty is under assault nationwide, this ruling is a welcome reminder that the Constitution protects people of faith---and a welcome rebuke to government agencies that try to play games with our rights."
