Religious football banners causing stir

(WFLX) - We should know on Thursday whether a group of Texas cheerleaders will be allowed to use religious football banners.

In September, district officials told the cheerleaders to stop using Bible verses at football games after the Freedom from Religion Foundation complained.

The atheist group argued that using banners with phrases such as, "I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me," violates the First Amendment prohibition on the government establishing a religion.
