There’s going to be a hair-pullin’…

A north Georgia school district banned cheerleaders holding banners bearing Bible verses before high school football games for fear the banners are unconstitutional.

The banners have moved, instead, to the school’s front yard, where officials believe their presence won’t give the appearance of the school district promoting religion.

The verses included — but were not limited to:

We have to take it one game at a time. (Zack 2:3)

and

 They have to take care of the football. (Josh 14:2)

O.K. I made that last part up.

  1. A couple of years ago my wife and I planned to be at the Washington National Cathedral for the Christmas Day service. Since it’s televised (actually one of the oldest recurring broadcasts on TV), I told my friends that we were going to hold up “John 3:16″ signs.

    We plan to be there again this Christmas. Watch for us!

  2. Nyah, nyah! Catch me if you can!

  3. I think some of the Old Testament verses about smiting might be fine for a football game, m’self.

  4. It is too bad that the school administration became “chicken”–If someone filed suit against the cheerleaders use of signs–the worst that would happen is the courts would tell them to stop–nothing more than that has occurred in other such incidents.
    No one had protested the signs–some “do gooder” simply told them that they might get in trouble. They had been doing it since 9/11 with no complaints

  5. It’s not a matter of not hearing complaints, but of doing the right thing.
