Exclusive Video: Texas Cheerleader After Winning Bible Lawsuit: "I Knew That God Was Going To Work It Out"


The Kountze Texas High School Cheerleaders are victorious. Now that a judge ruled in their favor, they can continue to display Bible verses on the football team's run-through banners. Watch our exclusive Skype interview with some of them very early this morning. The Brody File traveled to Kountze, TX back in January to cover their story.



Some of the Texas Cheerleaders comments:

"I knew that God was going to work it out."

"If you believe in something then you should stand firmly and don't back down just because someone says you can't do it."

The sad part is that they had to go to court in the first place!

Not to disappoint, but a state judge is hardly the final word on a First Amendment issue. We kinda settled that dust back in 1865, if not 1789.

If they are sponsored by the school, and thus represent the school, this case is almost certain to be overturned, most likely by a federal court, as the law is clear that a public entity cannot sponsor religious messages or events.

Bad decision. Remember that when the Supreme Court banned prayer before high school football games, the plaintiffs were the Roman Catholic Church and Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. The local protestants (Baptists, Presbyterians, Evangelicals, etc.) were beating up Catholic & Mormon kids, saying they were "of the devil" and controlled by cults. We do not live in a Shiite Muslim dictatorship. Separation of Church & State has helped religion flourish. No Koran-thumpers, no Bible-thumpers.

This is a fantastic Decision, See there is no Constitutional Law against School and Prayer, nor about individuals showing their religion.

The made up line of Separtaion of Church and State is a lie and does not exist in the Constitution.

But in this case it was not even the school running it.

Those who hate religion are people that hate themselves for they have no faith!

Mr NOT Thomas Paine please give us where in the Constitution it says a public entity cannot sponsor religious messages??

Please do! These lies portrayed by the libs in this country is astounding. The Lie about Separation of Church and State was made so the people can be controlled by man and to take God out of the public square which our founding Fathers were fully against, they just did not want a Theorcacy like Britain at the time. They never intend for God to be taken out.

Now for a little more truth it was a Liberal member of the Supreme Court appointed by FDR who was a KKK memeber in good standing that came up with the Seapartion of Church and State in his opinion due to the KKK hate Catholics and the case was dealing with a catholic issue. So i know the libs love the KKK and that is why they support this.

We have totally screwed up the interpretation of the founding documents. If I am correct the constitution prohibits the establishment of a state religion, as say in England with the Anglican Church. Having a prayer or a words on banners is not establishing a religion.

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."
- Declaration of Independence, 1776

Obama often omits "Creator" when speaking of our "unalienable" rights, reducing rights endowed by our creator, to mere privileges permitted by politicians! Democrats boisterously booed God three times at their 2012 national convention!

One of their communist progressive ploys, often promoting shameful unfair discrimination by atheists clinging to the irony of their offensive exclusionary belief in an unproven theory, is to attack American liberty derived of unalienable "natural law" endowed by our creator, with a false argument of separation of church and state, which is not in the Constitution! Quite the contrary, Judeo-Christian tenets form the foundation of our Constitutional Republic. If there is any valid pretense for separation o

Dear Thomas Paine. Last time I looked, the 1st Amendment says, "CONGRESS shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, OR PROHIBITING THE FREE EXERCISE THEREOF . . ."
Now I might be wrong, but I don't think those cheerleaders are even IN the U.S. Congress. And I don't see where they are attempting to establish a religion--but it's quite clear that their free exercise thereof is being trampled by a liberal, corrupt court system that apparently can't read. Cases such as this are typically squashed by money--the ACLU has a seemingly unlimited supply. The students/schools/school districts don't and usually have to drop their suit or acquiesce to the ACLU. Just remember: when a Conservative doesn't like something, he doesn't participate. When a Liberal doesn't like something, he doesn't want ANYONE to participate.

Wrong again, Tommy tom tom. The Constitution, which IS the law of the land permits for the "free exercise thereof" when it comes to religion. Bible verses on a football banner is hardly Congress attempting to "establish" a religion.

Thomas Paine:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

The Kountze High School cheerleaders aren't Congress. But since when have proponents of "separation of church and state" ever actually read the Constitution?

Not sure the SCOTUS prayer ruling applies here, Rhonda. These young ladies are not beating up on anyone - just exercising their First Ammendment right which is not trumped by separation of church and state.

God bless you ladies. This may not be over. Stand firm!

The Separation doctrine is only meant to stop two things: compelled worship and compelled tithing. It does not excuse the atheist, pagan, heathen, or useless idiot from being exposed to religious discourse. There have been numerous bad court decisions expanding on this until we have a state religion of intolerance and atheism, but these are perversions of the court and acts of social engineering begging for courageous action and utter defiance.

From an admittedly Christian-biased POV, but trying to think neutrally here, why can't cheerleaders put a quotation on their banner? Shakespeare, Chaucer, Hemingway, popular song or movie, those ought to be fine; so what's the problem with Job or Luke? Highly influential writers, intelligent and respected; not immoral or obscene. This whole thing is way out of balance.

This is a great idea. Now every religious group can do the same thing. Wait until Muslims start doing it, the church of the KKK, the Westboro church. I cannot wait to see this play out

The anti christain crowd are quick to point out that congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, however they are silent about the second part of that amendment, which states "or prohibiting the free exercise therof", you cant enforce one part and then hide the other.
