Hey, Our Texas Attorney General Is Grandstanding Again


Greg Abbot will probably ride into town on a horse.  He's a David Dewhurst starter kit.

And for people to say that those signs are exclusively controlled by the cheerleaders is malarkey  You think they can put anything on there without consequences? Curse words? Racist remarks? A nude picture? No way. There has to be a school censor (and that means "the government") who has the authority to control the content of those signs. And if there is a school censor, he or she  is approving of the bible verses by not taking any action.

What was it I heard the other day? They are trying to turn Texas into Teapartyistan?

Only if they strap him to it General Hood-style.

So, our AG is supporting the cheerleaders and their desire to put up religious messages?

You can bet your ass that if those young ladies quoted the Quran, there wouldn't be a Republican backing that free speech in any of our 254 counties.

Abbot supports religious freedom if it is his kind of Christian religion...and, none of that "give to the poor" stuff that Jesus taught us.

I think the Dallas Observer's Jim Schutz called Texas, Teabagistan.

We used to live in a free country before the lawyers took over. Too damn many rules now.

11:30: You know that's right. In fact, it's a good test whether a thing is a genuine freedom of speech issue or not -- substitute a verse from the Quran for your Bible verse, and see what happens. If it's defended as free speech, congratulations! If not, you best check your Christianist privilege.

Who knew that cheerleader's banners equated to the government establishing a religion. (Must be nice for a group of teenagers to be labeled as representatives of the government as well.)

I am surprised the US official motto still exists today.

This country used to be free speech- but that doesn't seem to be now- this country was built as a Christian nation- This one thing the reps and dems can come togethere on --- or should come together

We used to make signs every Thursday afternoon for the Pep Rally and ballgame on Friday. I don't remember any government official ever inspecting them to make sure we weren't offending anyone. Of course, that was 40 years ago. We were expected to try to offend the other team. All this political correctness is just malarky!

Back from Hofstra already, BG?

Are you comparing bible verses with curse words, racist remarks and nude pictures?

Free speech is free speech, whether it is the Billy Graham variety or the Larry Flynt variety. If you fight for one, you better be prepared to accept the other.

And as far as the cheerleaders being an extension of the school's authority, I have known several cheerleader moms who thought they ran the school, so that makes sense to me.

Those cheerleaders should be more creative in their choice of scripture. For instance, Deuteronomy 25:11-12--

"If two men are fighting and the wife of one of them comes to rescue her husband from his assailant, and she reaches out and seizes him by his private parts, you shall cut off her hand. Show her no pity."

I am a supporter of the separation of church and State. I am a supporter of our Constitution. I believe what Rick and Greg are doing is WRONG - they are just pandering the vote. I believe what the cheerleaders are doing is WRONG. I think that if our churches get any higher up on their fancy horses, they need to be paying taxes like the rest of us.

Yea the problem is the role of a Cheerleader is to Cheer for your team. Not a religion, not a moral code of conduct but to cheer for the team football, basketball, wrestling, whatever. I was a cheerleader for more years than I'd like to remember and our main focus was making signs to piss off Bridgeport, not the Devil. Go Eagles!

Yes, back in the day we made a long sign the length of the gym with al sorts of rants and ravings including, 'castrate the bulls'. I remember we were a little concerned we might get in trouble but, not one teacher, administrator, parent, or news station in the Metroplex said a word about it. We also knew the worst thing that would happen to us is that we would have to cut that part of the sign out and tape it back together.

Atheists have the same rights christians have. You will also note many major religions do not believe in god.

Our money says "In God We Trust". Hello?

God supports our team, and anyone who does not recognize that is an atheist commie.

Maybe the AG should investigate voter fraud in Rhome and the filth that loiters at city hall!

BG has been indoctrinated by the far left so he does not understand the Tea Party core principles is limited government and fiscal responsiblity. Being a member of Tea Party Patriots and listening to regular conference calls, right wing Christian social issues are not discussed. That is why the local Tea Party disbanned because they were pusing right wing fundamental Christian social agenda; not the core values of limited govenment and a balanced budget!

So forget about spinning the Tea Party making Texas Teapartyistan. Barry, you're sounding like Ken Hughes now!!!

Well, there was at least one guy trying to make Texas into Teaparrtyism, he was handing people pre filled ballots! He was working in Rhome, and I would not be suprised if he conned a few of the seniors in Rhome and New Fairview from hus church into voting his dream ticket.

Use to the Bible was aloud in school THE Bible not the quran. We were alot better off then look how far we have come after taking out the bible. We went from chewing gum breaking the rules to using guns. It doesn't take a scientist to figure out we need the BIBLE.
