ATLANTA (AP) - Cheerleaders at a north Georgia high school are gearing up for another football game, but they won't be holding up signs bearing Bible verses.
The school district banned the signs over concerns they were unconstitutional and would provoke a lawsuit. The ban has angered many in the deeply religious community near Lakeview-Fort Oglethorpe High School.
Some students say if most of the community doesn't see a problem with the messages, they should be allowed.
Rallies have been held supporting the signs since the ban was put in place a week ago. School officials have designated an area where they can go on display for Friday night's game.
One of the signs at a previous game said: "Commit to the Lord, whatever you do, and your plans will succeed."
