What? You mean that cheerleaders are not powerful enough to establish a state religion by waving a banner? I thought those girls could do everything and spoke for the federal government.

("Shall not be infringed" is unambiguous.)
... no law "prohibits cheerleaders from using religious-themed banners at school sporting events."
O RLY? I was sure the Texas legislature had thought to prohibit this dreadful crime, specifically!
