FFRF Seeks Plaintiffs for Kountze Court Fight

Now that a Texas judge has issued an injunction allowing cheerleaders at Kountze High School to promote Christianity at football games with their banner, the Freedom From Religion Foundation is looking to defend church/state separation.

They just need plaintiffs with standing to move forward:

The Freedom From Religion Foundation, whose complaint began the case, is not a party to the lawsuit. If contacted by those with standing to sue, FFRF is prepared to challenge the continuing violation in federal court, where this case belongs.

“We encourage any student or parent with children in the public schools coming into contact with this religious practice at public school functions to contact FFRF,” said FFRF Co-President Annie Laurie Gaylor. Plaintiffs with standing might also include school employees coming into regular contact with religious banners at school sporting events.

It’s always tough, especially in Texas, to put yourself out there in a case like this, but being a plaintiff would be a brave, important step toward achieving church/state separation.

If you’re one of the people in good standing, please contact FFRF.
