Transcript for Cheerleaders Who Banner Bible Verses Banned
To texas now. A committee rooting for a cheerleading squad. The squad's been banned from showing bible verses during games. Now, headed to court. Ryan owens has the story. Reporter: In this small texas town, they worship two things. God and football. So, perhaps it only seemed natural the cheerleading squad without paint bible verses on the banners the players run through for every game. We find it encourages the boys. Reporter: But it apparently offended someone. The unidentified person complained to an atheist group saying the bible banners advocated a particular religion. And that's unconstitutional. It's not a christian school. And they cannot misuse their authority. Reporter: In response, the school superintendent forced them to stop the scriptures. So, the cheer leaders put down the pom-poms and picked up a phone. Calling the attorney. He says that the banners are not school-sponsored. That the girls came up with the idea by looking at the social networking website, pinterest. It was student-led. Reporter: This community is cheering for the cheerleaders. Signs of support are all over town and online. This facebook page dedicated to their fight now has nearly 50,000 followers. That's 25-times more people than live here. When people say, these people came to a football game, not to church, what do you say? They have a right to say whatever they want to say. But I mean, it's our religion. And we want to portray that. Reporter: Texas is known for swift justice. And the cheerleaders are counting on it. Here at the courthouse behind me, they are hoping the judge will rule today. After all, there's a game here tomorrow night. They already have the banner It has a scripture on it. The only question, will the judge let them use it?
