Religious And Public Policy Organizations Advise Texas Court To Curb On-Field Proselytizing

September 6, 2013

A Texas public school may curb cheerleaders from displaying large banners bearing Bible verses during football games, Americans United for Separation of Church and State and a coalition of religious and public policy groups have advised a state court.

The groups filed a friend-of-the-court brief (PDF) yesterday in Kountze Independent School District v. Matthews. The legal challenge concerns cheerleaders at Kountze High School who had been using banners with Bible verses to motivate the football team during games. School administrators, however, received an anonymous complaint and ordered the practice stopped in September 2012.

Examples of signs included: “But thanks be to God, which gives us victory through our Lord Jesus Christ,” “I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me” and “If God be for us who can be against us?”
