I say, that’s not very legal.

There’s a great deal of hullabaloo going on with the Kountze school district down in Texas surrounding the obviously Christian banners the cheerleaders hold up at football games, as well as the community’s vocal insistence that it’s somehow not illegal.  It has the same feel as the Jessica Ahlquist case, where the religious people in the community don’t know squat about the law, but are willing to bet a lot of money earmarked for education on their legal opinions.  It’s just depressing.

So let’s add to the depression.  I got sent this photo today by a parent of a child in the district.  It’s from the wall of that child’s kindergarten.

Maybe it’s from a student-run club…in a kindergarten…full of 5-6 year-olds.

This is not legal.  What’s more, it makes me worry that the administrators of these schools value proselytizing their faith over educating their students.  That is an embarrassing set of priorities for the administrators of a school, and it may very well become costly when it comes time to decide whether or not to go to court over banners or this poster.  Just ask the administrators of Cranston High School West how that turned out for them.

For fuck’s sake, can we just let Rick Perry and Texas be their own nation?  Matt Dillahunty and Beth Presswoord, come to Ohio and live with me!
