What will they do if the cheerleaders put up the banners anyway? Arrest them? That would be all over Youtube.

The students should all put the words from John 3:16 on t shirts with the school colors, and wear to games.

Godless left wing/radical academia, choking the life out of our colleges and universities.

We will be sure and keep them in mind.

“I give you this instruction in keeping with the prophecies once made about you, so that by following them you may fight the good fight, holding on to faith and a good conscience. Some have rejected these and so have shipwrecked their faith. (1 Tim 1:18-19)

“Blessed are you, O Israel! Who is like you, a people saved by the Lord? He is your shield and helper and your glorious sword. Your enemies will cower before you, and you will trample down their high places.” (Deut 33:29)

Go, Cheerleaders and fans! Let’s show ‘em what Christians can do together! God bless...

These kids have learned a valuable lesson: that what was intended for evil, God will work for good. May He bless them for being unashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

From this Christian, I believe we have a lot more in common than not. We have the same Heavenly Father. I consider you a brother. Thank you for your support of these young people.
