The South's religions: Prayer, football

Posted By on Tue, Oct 27, 2009 at 6:30 AM

The NY Times visits Fort Oglethorpe, Ga., where the school board decided that proselytizing banners waved at football games by public school cheerleaders probably were a religious incursion too far into separation of church and state. Fans have responded by making religious banners to wave at games on their own.

More power to the pious fans. And good on the revivalists who gather by rivers everywhere, including North Little Rock, to dedicate their lives to Christ. Let all worship and witness however they choose, so long as it's not promoted, staged or financially supported by government money. Seems simple. Not in the Bible Belt.
