Texas Cheerleaders Gettin' All Biblical


They might have more religious street cred if they could get the Bible verse correct. (Not sure why the story quoted the banner with the correct verse.)

Story.

Edit: I blame the producer of the Mark Davis Show. She tweeted the "error" but she, like me, didn't take time to actually read the sign. She's corrected the error.

That is the correct verse reference in the picture and the correct reference in the story as well.

BG, trolling for the religious today I see. We should all prepare for the onslaught of comments from the numerous local Constitutional scholars referencing the Free Exercise Clause and ignoring the Establishment Clause.

People, before you post, ask yourself, "would be in favor of the signs if the group of cheerleaders chose to use Islamic quotes from the Koran?"

Also, for these purposes, remember that the tax-payer funded public school is to be considered the government.

I'm a Christian. I attend church. I give money. I go on mission trips. I talk to people about Jesus. Now hear this. I'm betting that God does not give a flip about Texas HS football especially disdanins when one team with Christians on it uses His word to fire themselves up to beat up the other team with Christians on it. Kids will be kids but the sponsors who let this kind of crap happen are just uneducated adlults.

I predict there will be riots.

Can't we all just get along?

Please reread 9:24 when he asks what if this was a Islamic quote. How would you like it? I agree that God doesn't choose sides at football games.

10:43 Your inability to spell the president's name might also indicate your lack of knowledge of not only the mess Bush left but the inability of the Republicans in congress and tea party types to allow anything that might actually improve the economy. It's time to put the country ahead of partisan politics.

Got to love a lefty. They are so easy to spot.

Boo Hoo it's so and so's fault. Boo Hoo I can't I can't because it's someone else's fault. Boo Hoo Boo Hoo

Here's the correct way to handle problems. IT DOESN'T MATTER WHOSE FAULT IT IS, FIX IT! THERE IS ALWAYS A SOLUTION. YOU PEOPLE ON THE LEFT ARE NOTHING BUT A BUNCH OF SISSIES WHO INSTEAD OF GETTING THE JOB DONE YOU'D RATHER STAND AROUND AND SAY POOR ME.

IN 4 YRS THIS CORRUPT DEMO PRESIDENT DID NOTHING BUT CREATE MORE PROBLEMS AS WELL AS, DIVIDE THIS COUNTRY. HE IS ALSO CLUELESS ON HOW TO BE A PROFESSIONAL LEADER. HE IS WORTHLESS AND A DISGRACE TO THE UNITED STATES.

SHAME ON YOU PEOPLE ON THE LEFT.

Whatever the reason for their signs, and God's position on football, why do these students not have the right to put whatever they wish on the signs?

Christian, Muslim, Buddist, Atheist, whatever. Mind your own business.

12:32; very loud and inarticulate but not sure I understand the context. Have someone explain that to you.
Either we all come from monkeys or we're supposed to be like this, and I don't like it either way. stolen from "Bob" Dobbs

2:30 It's the Schools' property. The School determines who gets to be on the field. The School determines who gets to hold up a sign on the field. The School requires the team to run through the sign. The School controls what the cheerleaders say, wear, shout, perform. The school has the cheerleaders, team, coaches, etc. all wear uniforms representing the School. The School owns the PA system. The School decides who speaks on the PA system.

In exerting such control, the School, by allowing religious messages, is endorsing those messages. And since the School is funded by our taxes, it is akin to government endorsement of religion.

4:38, you're not totally correct. It depends on the school. Some pay for everything the cheerleader wears, does, etc., while at others, parents must pay up to $1,000 for their daughter/son to be a cheerleader, and then on top of that, they must also participate in fundraisings in order to pay for paper and paints - YES, I said it, we pay for paper and paint. And the school cannot dictate what the student says nor writes on a poster as long as it follows certain guidelines.
I'll bet my job the cheerleaders will win this legal battle if they so choose to fight it.

I believe schools can promote learning about religions. They just cannot promote one over others.

4:38,

Who cares? Leave them alone. Let them do as they wish.

Find something in your own life that you can make better.

It really cheapens the concept of a holy God to make tacky paper signs for a HS football game. It's irreverent at best, and sacrilegious at worst. I'd be very uncomfortable if I saw a sign like that at a high school sporting event of any kind, and I consider myself a staunch Christian.

Wouldn't tearing up the holy sign be considered blasphemy?

Good for you, 9:47.
