(CBN NEWS) Cheerleaders from a southeast Texas high school can continue to display Bible verses on their banners at football games, a judge ruled.

Last fall an atheist group filed a complaint with the school superintendent of Kountze, Texas, saying scriptures should not be allowed on sports banners. But the cheerleaders argued that was a violation of their free speech and filed a lawsuit.

It all began when the cheerleaders got tired of the same old negative banners displayed at the start of football games.
