A Texas appeals court has sided with a highschool which let cheerleaders use signs that have Bible verses emblazoned across them. The court ruled that such items come under the category of ‘private speech’ and not government speech that can be regulated by school officials.

The 9th Court of Appeals in Beaumont ruled that it was “highly unlikely” that people would consider messages on the banners by the Kountze school district cheerleaders to be actually endorsed by the school, reports News 4SA.

In an interesting move, the Texas Supreme Court last year allowed the lawsuit to continue, sending it back to the lower court.
