Apparently they put things on their banners like if God is for us, who can break us..

The football team runs through it.

A orginzation called freedom from religion complained and the school superintendent made them stop.

The girls say its not school sponsored, cheerleaders create their own banners and they got the ideas from pinterest

Today it goes to the state supreme court.

The girls want to be able to continue to make whatever banner they want


Should they be able to? Or should the organization win and have the banners mentioning God continue to be banned?

They should be banned, unless this is specifically a church-sponsored event. If it's not through a church and they had those banners, I would not attend - just for the moral of it. They have no right to push religion on anyone.

Hmmm I don't know, but I think it's a bad idea anyway. I'm sure not every player and cheerleader is Christian.

But the school allows the cheerleaders to make their own banners.

And the town is 2000 big. No one really was bothered by it until this organization got involved.

Cheerleaders can't have faith? That's dumb.

I don't think that they should be able to put God on the banners. I am a believer that religion should be kept out of public schools. In a public school you have many children with many different religions attending. I feel that if one group is allowed to promote their particular religion it could be considered discriminatory against other religions.

For the record I am a Christian.

It shouldn't be displayed on school grounds since it's a public school.
