Tough Call: Should bible verses be allowed on school banners at football games?

Today’s tough call hails from a tiny town in Texas. Should bible verses be allowed on school banners if the football team plows right through them before a game?

Someone filed a complaint to the school and officials decided to ban the bible verses. But many parents and students say faith and football are both firm aspects of the community and want them back.

This morning, the "Starting Point" team debates whether the verses should be allowed on the banners.

    As long as the school is not sponsoring the banner...Is there any hate speech on it? Is there profanity? Is there anything gang related? If you ban one, you have to ban them all. Even the banner that says, "I can't do anything without my morning cup of joe." Cause you know, you might offend all the tea drinkers. Or the one that says, "Dogs rule and cats drool." The cat lovers would be sooo offended.
