TX AG Defends Cheerleaders in Bible Verse Fight [VIDEO]
UPDATE: A Texas judge sided with the cheerleaders on Thursday, continuing an injunction against the school’s policy & allowing them to display Bible verses on banners at football games.
Texas’s top state lawyer is jumping into a lawsuit involving a controversial school policy that limits what cheerleaders can put on banners at high school football games.
FOX News Radio’s Chris Hoenig has details:
Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott is defending Kountze High School cheerleaders in their lawsuit against a school district policy that says they can’t use Bible verses on banners at football games.
(Abbott) “We will not allow Atheist groups from outside of the state of Texas to come into this state, to use menacing and misleading intimidation tactics to try to bully schools to bow down at the altar of secular beliefs.”
The policy was put in place after the Freedom From Religion Foundation threatened to sue the district, arguing that the Bible references amount to the public school endorsing a religion. The cheerleaders say it violates their right to free speech.
