Texas Cheerleaders Want God On Their Team
By LASIS Staff
Last October, cheerleaders in Arizona wanted to support breast cancer month by selling pink tee shirts that said “Feel For Lumps, Save Your Bumps.” The school didn’t like this idea, and LASIS explained why any encroachment on their freedom of speech (especially for such a good cause) was not a good idea.
One year later, high school cheerleaders are in the headlines again – - and this time, they’re suing because an atheist group didn’t want them to continue lifting banners with bible quotations at games. The cheerleaders sued, and in a town with a population of under 2500, they now have a facebook page that as of this afternoon had 46,877 friends.
Freedom of speech? Separation of church and state? Which value will prevail?
With the groundswell of support for the bible-thumping cheerleaders, those atheists just might want to pray.
UPDATE: October 18, 2012: Governor Rick Perry to the rescue!
