LISTEN NOW! A group of high school cheerleaders were told they could not show banners at high school football games that promoted scripture by the school board when an Atheist organization complained about it says, CBN News. The group said it violated the separation of church and state. “To be a violation of the separation of church and state, the message actually has to come from the government,” says Justin Butterfield, Liberty Institute attorney. The Supreme Court recognized that the girls don’t lose their constitutional rights at the schoolhouse doors. One cheerleader said the lesson she learned was when you believe in something, stand up for what you believe.
