cheerleaders take stand on religion

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
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?

Regarding our motto of the United States:  In God We Trust - November 1, 2011 

WASHINGTON - Citing a crisis of national identity and mass confusion among Americans about their nation's motto, the House on Tuesday voted on a resolution "reaffirming ‘In God We Trust' as the official motto of the United States." The resolution, smaller than a law but bigger than a wish, is designed to clear up any confusion over the motto’s official status and to encourage schools and other public institutions to display it, said Representative J. Randy Forbes, Republican of Virginia and the measure’s sponsor. “What’s happened over the last several years is that we have had a number of confusing situations in which some who don’t like the motto have tried to convince people not to put it up,” Mr. Forbes said in an interview. “Some public officials have stated incorrectly that there are different national mottoes,” he added. “We heard the president make that mistake.” (Last year, President Obama cited “E pluribus unum” as the nation’s motto in a speech in Indonesia.)   The resolution, which went through an expedited process requiring acquiescence of two-thirds of the House, passed 396 to 9, with all but one of the no votes coming from Democrats.
