After Kountze High School Cheerleaders Hold Up Prayer Banner, the Football Team Loses

Remember how the cheerleaders at Kountze High School won a temporary reprieve on their Bible run-through banners this past Thursday?

Well, a day later, under the Friday Night Lights, the varsity football team lost their first game of the season:

That puts them at 4-1 for the year now.

As a coach of a competitive high school team myself, I’m not mocking the football players at all. But it probably takes an atheist to point out that the cheerleaders’ banners didn’t help the team win the game.

I guess God was rooting for the other team.
