Cheerleaders suspended for one game for singing song

Three cheerleaders from Trinity Christian Academy have been suspended from cheering for one game as a result of appearing on First Coast News Sideline 2002. Elena Mattison and two other girls were singing the song "Heaven," as part of the Sideline 2002 American Idol Night and were videotaped having fun. However, when the head pastor at Trinity saw the tape he told the girls that it was inappropriate and as Christians they should not have been singing a "worldly song....according to Head Pastor Tom Messer, "I just don't think it is appropriate for teenage girls to be thinking of relationships in that way."
