Kountze Cheerleaders Allowed to Display Religious Banners

Published on May 09, 2013 by Larry Crippen

Wednesday, State District Judge Steve Thomas ruled that cheerleaders at Kountze High School in Southeast Texas can display banners featuring Bible verses at their football games.

According to the ruling, Judge Thomas stated that no law “prohibits cheerleaders from using religious-themed banners at school sporting events.”

The legal issue began during their last football season when the school district said the cheerleaders would not be allowed to use banners that displayed religious messages during games.

The ruling can be appealed by the school district.
