Texas Court Scores Big Victory For Religious Free Speech

Score one for religious free speech.

According to The Texas Tribune, the Texas Supreme Court has sided with an East Texax high school and will allow its religious banner lawsuit to continue.

Since 2012, the cheerleading squad at Kountze High School has been battling to keep Christian messages on the banners that their football players run through at the opening of their games. Messages have included Hebrews 12:1, which states, "and let us run with endurance the race God has set before us." The Kountze Independent School District banned the banners after a lawsuit threat from the Freedom From Religion Foundation, but the parents of the cheerleaders fired back with their own lawsuit against the ban.

After a long battle, the district pulled back the ban, but the families continued to pursue the lawsuit for fear that the ban could return in the future.

In a major victory for the parents on Friday, the Texas Supreme Court sided with them in allowing the lawsuit to continue.

Justice John Devine wrote, "The District no longer prohibits the cheerleaders from displaying religious signs or messages on banners at school-sponsored events. But that change hardly makes 'absolutely clear' that the District will not reverse itself after this litigation is concluded."
