A group of teenage cheerleaders are expecting to find out from a Texas district judge whether they can continue to display Bible verses at high school football games.

The cheerleaders at Kountze High School sued the district after officials said they could no longer use scripture on banners, such as, "If God is for us, who can be against us?"

The district banned the use of religious messages after the Freedom From Religion Foundation complained. The group says the messages violated the First Amendment prohibition on government establishing a religion.

State District Judge Steve Thomas issued an injunction allowing the cheerleaders to continue using Bible verses until he made a decision. He set a hearing for Thursday, when he was expected to rule on the cheerleaders' case.
