Kountze High School cheerleaders can display Bible verses on football game banners, a Texas judge ruled, blocking a school district ban with an injunction.

The Thursday order, entered by Hardin County District Judge Steve Thomas, revives the biblical banners pending the resolution of a complaint against the Kountze Independent School District. Trial is set for June 24, 2013.
