Fort Oglethorpe cheerleaders with banner
When high school football players run through a banner with Bible verses on it, does that violate the US Constitution?
The school board attorney stopped them from doing that in Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia, telling them they were “violating federal law.”
It is remarkable how the Constitution’s prohibition of a federally established church (state established churches still existed when the Constitution was adopted) has evolved first into a wall of separation between church and state, and ultimately into widespread bans on public expression of religious sentiment.
