The latest battle in the country's war over religion in public schools has flared up in northwest Georgia.  A school system in Catoosa County has suddenly put a stop to a high school football team's custom – for nearly 10 years, they have raced onto their home field bursting through banners with Bible verses written on them.

The decision not to allow the banners has touched off anger throughout the community.  What do you think?  Should the school allow the cheerleaders be allowed to display the banners?  Or does it infringe on the First Amendment's separation of school and religion?
