Remember the cheerleaders that won the court case against the school district that was trying to prevent them from painting Bible verses and patriotic sayings on “run-through” signs at home then bringing them to football games for the team to run through?
Well, the school district lost in court. Appealed. Lost again. Now they’re back at it. Wasting more taxpayer money and preventing our Texas kids from expressing themselves the way they wish to express themselves.
One must wonder what would happen if they were to paint immoral things on these “run-throughs”. What would happen then? Not a thing, I presume. This is wrong, and this is happening in Texas, folks.
IN THE SCHOOL
Just a few short weeks ago the Kountze High School Cheerleaders and all of America celebrated when Liberty Institute secured a victory in the famous Bible banner case.
But now, joining a host of radical left groups like the ACLU and the extremist Freedom From Religion Foundation, the Kountze ISD wants to eliminate the free speech rights of its students.
Faith. Jesus Christ. Hope. Love—these are dirty words for students in Kountze, Texas.
The Kountze district filed the appeal Tuesday. The district says it wants the 9th Texas Court of Appeals in Beaumont to clarify whether the Kountze High School cheerleaders have a free speech right to include the religious messages.
The district says state District Judge Steve Thomas ruled the banners were allowed under the U.S. Constitution but stopped short of saying the cheerleaders had a free-speech right to them.
District lawyer Tom Brandt said the cheerleaders’ legal advocates “are reading into the court’s decision rights that just aren’t there.”
Seemed pretty clear to everybody who read it except for you, Tom.
