Louisiana may set a precedent for displaying the Ten Commandments in schools, although many feel that the legislation would violate the first amendment. What do you think of this bill?

From Nola.com. Louisiana will become the first state to require that public universities and K-12 schools display the Ten Commandments in every classroom after the Senate voted overwhelmingly to push forward new legislation Thursday.

Post a prayer for your state!


Following a short debate, lawmakers voted 30-8 to approve House Bill 71. All “no” votes were Democrats, though a few Democrats voted in favor of the proposal.

“The purpose is not solely religious,” Sen. Jay Morris, R-West Monroe, told the Senate. Rather, it is the Ten Commandments’ “historical significance, which is simply one of many documents that display the history of our country and foundation of our legal system.”

Authored by Rep. Dodie Horton, R-Haughton, HB 71 has been the center of controversy in recent months amid concerns the proposal violates the First Amendment, which prohibits the government from establishing a religion. …

Horton has previously defended her bill, saying during a House debate last month that the Ten Commandments are the “basis of all laws in Louisiana” and arguing that the legislation honors the country’s religious origins. …

The bill must next be signed by the governor before it becomes law.

At least one other state, Utah, is also considering legislation that would require schools to display the Ten Commandments in classrooms. …

Father, thank you for this bill. May it pass. Prepare the legislators to defend their decision on the basis of the true meaning of the First Amendment, rather than the thought of “separation of church and state.” I pray that no judge would rule against them and that it would stand.

The Firzt Amendment has been misused to allow for depravity and abuse. The time is far spent and we need to initiate a repentance.

Praise the Lord! The word of God is living and powerful sharper than any two edge sword, piercing even to the division of the soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Hebrews 4:12. As Christians we are not bound by the law, because Christ fulfilled it, however, we do have these instructions of God’s commandments to do our best to live by them. These commandments keep us on track and focused on God’s kingdom and our true intentions amen

I think having the 10 Commandments displayed in schools would be beneficial. The Word of God is powerful and changes hearts. The guidelines in the 10 Commandments can silently bear Kingdom results!
