Our constitution guarantees freedom OF religion, not freedom FROM religion. Why does it seem to be so hard for some people to understand? It's actually pretty straight forward.
As long as we don't have a directly government sponsored religion, where people are more or less forced to join a particular religion, then as individuals and groups we have the freedom to express our religious views and beliefs. It's not rocket science, for heaven's sake. (pun intended)

Having a group of cheerleaders display a bible passage does not pressure anyone to join any religion in any way. Many of the fundamental moral teachings found in the bible are also found in all of the other major writings of other primary religions of the world.

As a society, we should be grateful that there are young people who believe in and demonstrate their beliefs in positive morals. It's purely a positive indicator for our society... in our nation and in the world. The more positive things people exemplify, the less negatives we have to deal with in this world of ours. I repeat... it's not rocket science. We need to further open our hearts and minds.

Now they also get to display verses from the Quran and other holy books. What do you want to bet that these cheerleaders would throw fits if someone tried to do that?

Have you been living under a rock, it has been ok for a long time to display or show quotes from the Quran, you never can bash anything about the Quran or say anything against Mohamad. But it is fine to bash Jesus and the Bible.

ranchhand seems to ignore the fact that the Quran condemns his sexaul choices even more than does the bible. Anything to bash Christians

This is a freedom of speech issue not a religious issue,

and believe it or not, even religious people are guaranteed freedom of speech in the public square, they are citizens.
