In Texas, a Legal Battle over Biblical Banners

posted on October 23, 2012

At The New York Times, Manny Fernandez writes about the controversy in Kountze, Texas, over the display of banners with Bible quotes at the town’s high school football games. The school superintendent, Kevin Weldon, who forbade the display of the banners, has found himself “at odds with the majority of his students … and some in Kountze believe, his God,” writes Fernandez. “Though he has taken a stand that pleases the Anti-Defamation League and the Freedom From Religion Foundation, he is not their ally. Though his action upset the Liberty Institute, a Christian legal group representing the cheerleaders, he is not their opponent. He is caught somewhere in between.”
