HOUSTON (AP) - A judge ruled Wednesday that cheerleaders at a Southeast Texas high school can display banners emblazoned with Bible verses at football games.

This judge nailed it! There is no law of any kind to prevent this. It is not prohibited by the Constitution either.

It’s about time they rule that public school students are not “the state” or “the church”

But that would set a bad precedent: it might lead to them not being considered subservient to the state.
