Texas Attorney General to defend Texas high school cheerleaders in free speech case
New report on the Southern Poverty Law Center

Steve Coleman is the religion editor for the Associated Press.

Following a complaint (PDF) from the Freedom from Religion Foundation, the Kountze Independent School District told cheerleaders at Kountze High School that they had to stop displaying banners with Bible verses at school football games. The cheerleaders filed a lawsuit.

On Wednesday, the state of Texas entered the case (PDF) on behalf of the cheerleaders. On Thursday, a Texas district court judge granted the cheerleaders an injunction that will temporarily allow them to continue. A trial is scheduled for next summer.

A new report (PDF) on the Southern Poverty Law Center says the group "manufactures" hate by loosely labeling organizations it disagress with as "hate groups." The report was authored by freelance writer James Simpson for the Capital Research Center.
