A Texas judge ruled last week that cheerleaders can display Bible verseson banners at high school football games, citing the students' First Amendment?s free-speech rights.
The school district had banned such messages after receiving a complaint from the Freedom From Religion Foundation contending that the banners violate a constitutional ban on the government establishing or endorsing a religion.
The case is scheduled to go to trial next June.
Which First Amendment clause do you believe is the key to this issue, students? free-speech guarantees or the ban on government establishing or endorsing a religion?
