Religion To Be Brought Back Into Public Schools

( – Louisiana schools will start displaying the Ten Commandments in every public school classroom.

On Wednesday, after Louisiana’s Republican Governor Jeff Landry signed into law a GOP-drafted legislation, public schools will be required to display the Ten Commandments in every classroom.

The legislation mandates the Ten Commandments should have a poster-sized (11 inches by 14 inches) display and should be printed in an “easily readable font,” with the Commandments being the central focus of the display.

The legislation, the first of its kind to become state law, requires the sacred text to include a four-paragraph “context statement” that explains that for nearly “three centuries,” the Ten Commandments featured prominently in the country’s public school system.

The law also communicates that state funds won’t be used to fund the posters, which public schools will be required to display by 2025. Instead, schools will have to seek private donations to fund the posters. 

However, opponents query whether the new law is constitutional, warning that lawsuits will be imminent.

Proponents disagree. Instead, they state the display is not solely religious but is historically significant, pointing to the law’s language that describes the Ten Commandments as a “foundational document” for state and national government.

Texas, Utah, and Oklahoma are pursuing similar bills requiring the Ten Commandments to be displayed in public school classrooms.

However, none have signed such legislation into law, given the threats of legal action questioning the constitutionality of such laws, which have also hindered the passage of similar laws by state Congress.
