I believe that we should have the right to display any religious references on student banners used at school-sponsored events; such as graduation ceremonies, football or sports events, theater and fine arts events, and any other school events that are presented by or for the school.

The freedom of religion does not stop once you cross the threshold of the school. The government is not the one who gives us our freedom and right to have whatever religion we choose to have.

The children were no longer permitted to have Bible studies on their break time or before school started or after school on school grounds.
