Nice. Like God has nothing better to do than intervene in high school football games.


Cheerleaders say their faith is not broken, in fact, they say it has only grown stronger in the wake of a ban on religious signs at football games.

If that's enough to break your faith I would suggest it was pretty weak to begin with.


"Students do not shed their constitutional rights when they walk through the school house door," he told the Los Angeles Times on Thursday. "If it's private speech, they can't restrain it."

Would beg to differ.

Wait, wait, a principal in Texas actually got things right? Excuse me, I'm feeling a bit faint...

Guys, before the religious arguments ensue, who are these cheerleaders harming with this?

Just let them feel like their helping people be more Christian for the 15 months before they get knocked up.

Besides, if a player passes through the Bible quote banner and ends up paralyzed later in the game, he'll learn a valuable lesson about the fairness of life.

As long as they're not telling anybody they're going to Hell, let them pimp their pom poms.

As an atheist i say, let 'em wave their banners. It's not like its hurting anyone.

FTA: "District lawyers argue that the signs amount to government endorsement of religion."

LOL Whut? Is there a Federal Bureau of Handwritten Religious Signs who's giving them to cheerleaders?

Or are the Federal Cheerleaders?

They can't do that because that would be the US government establishing a national religion.

There are very few things that I find more obnoxious than religious US High School kids. Take all the attitude, rightitude, misdirectitude, stupititude that US teenagers bring to the table and mix it up with a sense of religiousitude and you get a horrible, horrible concoction.

Cause God love nothing more on a Friday night that a good highschool football game...

Suggested passage:
"And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward."

The federal Department of Education, which provides federal tax dollars to this school.

If they fund the school district with no public money, no one can say shiat about the signs.

2012-10-05 06:44:42 AM  
Matthew 6 5-8

For those people who aren't familiar with the passage (Most of the Bible Beaters you meet....)
5 "And when you pray, you shall not be like the hypocrites. For they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward. 6 But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly. 7 And when you pray, do not use vain repetitions as the heathen do. For they think that they will be heard for their many words.

8 "Therefore do not be like them. For your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him.
 
2012-10-05 06:46:14 AM  
If the girls want to stand in the audience and wave there signs, have at it. I dont care, that's an individual expressing her beliefs.... BUT.. When its a school sponsored even and cheerleaders and waving the sign to the audience THAT is a violation of the law... If these cheerleaders waved signs quoting Buddha the crowd would go apeshiat... The law is not to protect the majority, its to protect the minority...

Shut down the Department of Education, save $5 billion per year, and get 5,000 cars off of 495. That's a whole lot of win there.
 
2012-10-05 06:47:40 AM  
I'm assuming if one of the cheerleaders was a Muslim, then no one would have a problem with her waving a large banner with passages from the Koran on it, right?

Yeah, I didn't think so.

That's fine with me... so long as I can bring my own banner with biblical verses condemning whores and strumpets. Short-skirted girls waving biblical verses need to be educated.

they are children. they are what their parents have molded them to be. often these families are products of generation after generation of blind faith pushed down the throat before they are even born. it is not until a child is grown and free of that grasp that they may have a chance to be exposed to other schools of thought. please be patient with young people. often their minds are not their own.

My question to the people in situations like this is always:

If it were Islamic messages on the banners would you still support their right to hold them at the games? If not STFU and GTFO.
 
2012-10-05 06:54:47 AM  
Here's one you don't see much (Isaiah 36:12, KJV):

"But Rabshakeh said, Hath my master sent me to thy master and to thee to speak these words? hath he not sent me to the men that sit upon the wall, that they may eat their own dung, and drink their own piss with you?"

Yes, but remember this is high school. These are the "leaders" of the school. It would make teenagers w/ different views than theirs to feel very uncomfortable & "alone".

I'd think Jewish people would be acutely aware of what happens when people start losing track of the difference between government and religion. But then, I'm not Jewish, so. . . .
 
2012-10-05 07:00:26 AM

Friday is the sabbath for many muslims. They'd probably have a bigger problem with people going to a football game instead of worship.
