Gimmick: Just terminate the cheerleading program. Problem solved.
Dr. Whoof: Leeds: IAMTHEINTARWEBS: Hey Christians, answer me this cause it has been years since I studied religions...The couple, it seemed, had no money at all. They and their prayer circle were literally praying for the money to appear.
Dr. Whoof: Joe Blowme: Yes, i can actually read and belive in free speech... but its not stupid to claim congress passed a law about these cheerleaders? NiceYou've read the first...how about that pesky 14th amendment?
TomMalory: Wow. So, no comments yet on the name of the town? Kountze? How do you pronounce that, I wonder?
jammer24m: 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...
Rufus Lee King: How soon is Christian thought going to be illegal, BTW?I'd be interested to know.
david_gaithersburg: Nick Nostril: david_gaithersburg: Nick Nostril: They can't do that because that would be the US government establishing a national religion....Is there a Federal school system that the rest of us are not aware of?FTA: "District lawyers argue that the signs amount to government endorsement of religion."...Is there a Federal school system that the rest of us are not aware of?
IAMTHEINTARWEBS: Dr. Whoof: Leeds: IAMTHEINTARWEBS: Hey Christians, answer me this cause it has been years since I studied religions...The couple, it seemed, had no money at all. They and their prayer circle were literally praying for the money to appear.WhatisthatIdon'teven.jpgHow is it that your aren't in jail for not having these folks locked for being a danger to themselves. Surely someone who has that big of a misunderstanding about reality is a danger to themselves and others. That story is so preposterous as to seem completely unbelievable... except that I've met people that frkked up with religion.
Despair of the Cheese: AverageAmericanGuy: TomMalory: Wow. So, no comments yet on the name of the town? Kountze? How do you pronounce that, I wonder?Yeah, sorry. We're not all 8th graders here.Some of us are 6th graders and farts are still funny./I larfed.
Joe Blowme: Dr. Whoof: Joe Blowme: Yes, i can actually read and belive in free speech... but its not stupid to claim congress passed a law about these cheerleaders? NiceYou've read the first...how about that pesky 14th amendment?Which part ?Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws
retarded: 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?
Theaetetus: [www.mvpnation.com image 850x637]"Our defense, it will not rest!They'll lie all night betwixt our breasts!"
Rufus Lee King: It's really weird, y'all.The Islamic people fly planes into our towers, and now they are our heroes?Texas high school girls, choosing to espouse Christianity, are now are enemies?
retarded: 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.
WhyteRaven74: Wait, wait, a principal in Texas actually got things right? Excuse me, I'm feeling a bit faint...
Loren: WhyteRaven74: Wait, wait, a principal in Texas actually got things right? Excuse me, I'm feeling a bit faint...A principal in Texas understood that they would ultimately lose and be on the hook for the legal bills.
jmr61: abhorrent1: Religious idiots/fark you//and your godX 2IDIOTS
Metetron: aaaand there is your tollerant, open minded left.
Metetron: Freedom of speech
Metetron: They're not bombing an embassy
Rufus Lee King: My point is, despite all this foolishness, is that the girls can say whatever they want to on their banners.It's none of your business, nor mine.Seems quite simple enough.
MishenNikara: Ya know, our state JUST had a court case last year where a cheerleader was told she HAD to cheer for the guy who raped her. They said as a cheerleader she is a representative of the school and did NOT have the right to remain silent when she was supposed to be cheering for her rapist.These cheerleaders are also representatives of the school, and their school is saying no more bible verses. But since this is a Christian matter of Bible verses it makes it ok for them to defy what their school told them?http://www.beaumontenterprise.com/news/article/Silsbee-cheerleader-wh o -wouldn-t-root-for-1363318.php
Hollywood Cole: are you SETX?
MishenNikara: Hollywood Cole: are you SETX?Yeah, Beaumont specifically.
MikeyistheDevil: Silsbee myself, working in Lumberton. I'm quite familiar with this debate. I have argued supporting the school's decision and have been lambasted as if I had claimed Jesus didn't die for my sins.
Sylvia_Bandersnatch: Never mind that Texas doesn't actually have the right to secede. Can we *force* them to?
Pinko_Commie: Excuse my ignorance, but how is a Cheerleading squad at all related to state and local government?
