This article is about a group of cheerleaders holding religious signs at football games in Georgia.  Ever since Sept. 11th 2001 the cheerleaders of Lakeview-Fort Oglethorpe High have been holding religious signs at football games to make the bible a bigger part of the games.  This was put to an end last month when a parent expressed concern that the signs could cause a lawsuit.  The school district agreed, so the signs had to come down.  So the signs went from being held by the cheerleaders to being held by the fans.  The town was disappointed by the district’s decision.  So they took up to cause of the cheerleaders.  The have held rallies and sold t-shirts.  They have a first amendment to do so.  The courts rules that the students were free to express their faith just not in school sponsored clubs.  Many of the Christians know they didn’t win the battle but the war is going their way.

This article is newsworthy because it discusses the difficulty of Church and State.   The separation between Chruch and State has always been a big controversy.  Many people have argued over this and they all have opinions.  I think this article did a good with providing all the detail that I needed.  I wasn’t left wondering what was happening.  It gives different perspectives.  Anything to do with the First Amendment also is important.  I really enjoyed this article.  It kept my interest.  The lede was captivating.
