HOUSTON — A judge ruled Wednesday that cheerleaders at a Southeast Texas high school can display banners with Bible verses at football games.
But the ruling might not have settled the issue of whether the banners are protected free speech, according to an attorney for the cheerleaders' school district.
State District Judge Steven Thomas determined the Kountze High School cheerleaders' banners are constitutionally permissible.
The Kountze school district had initially said the banners could not be displayed after receiving a complaint about them in September from the Freedom From Religion Foundation.
