One of the big issues was the Kountze ISD case, where an anti-religion group was suing the school district because the cheerleaders were putting Bible verses on their football banners. The judge ruled in favor of the school district, but Neugebauer suspect the group will probably protest the judge’s decision. Nevertheless, Neugebauer is pleased with the decision and calls it a “great victory for religious expression in this country.”

“One of the things that concerns me is that we’ve always tried to scrub religion from our country. And the founders intended for us to have freedom OF religion, not freedom FROM religion.”

Neugebauer also gave his thoughts on tonight’s final presidential debate. He said that, even though the debate is supposed to be on foreign policy, there will more than likely be some segway into domestic issues as well. Neugebauer also discussed the importance of early voting, and that a record number of Texans have registered to vote in this election.

You can listen to Congressman Randy Neugebauer Mondays at 7:35 during Lubbock First News on NewsTalk 790 KFYO.
