Judge lets cheerleaders keep Bible signs

KOUNTZE, Texas, Sept. 20 (UPI) -- A Texas judge granted a temporary restraining order Thursday to allow high school cheerleaders to display faith-based signs at football games.

The Kountze High School cheerleaders sought the ruling after administrators of the Kountze Independent School District banned them from displaying signs and banners bearing scripture quotes at football games, the Beaumont (Texas) Enterprise reported Thursday.

Kountze ISD Superintendent Kevin Weldon said the ban was imposed on the advice of the Texas Association of School Boards, which warned the school could face lawsuits if it allows the religious banners, the Houston Press reported.
