Save us from the Cheerleaders!

Save us from the Cheerleaders!

Somebody needs to stop these cheerleaders… For the Chuck Colson Center for Christian Worldview, I’m John Stonestreet with The Point.


There’s a real problem down in Texas. According to reports, last week, cheerleaders are out of control. Are they partying after the game? No. Do they have some sadistic version of a female fight club as a hazing ritual? No, It’s even worse than that.

Cheerleaders at Kountze High School in Beaumont, TX are putting – brace yourself - Bible verses on signs at football games. And this comes only weeks after the Freedom from Religion Foundation discovered churches were providing pre-game meals for high school football teams in Texas. To those concerned about our impressionable children, it must sound like Texas is out-of-control.

Well, all kidding aside, a Texas judge has ruled to allow the signs. And I wonder if these groups will now spend energy fighting real problems, like the 13 New York City high schools that are dispensing Plan B to students as young as 14 without notifying their parents. Come to, I’m John Stonestreet.
