Ever notice how the GOP never wants the Bill of Rights posted?
Via The Texas Tribune:
Public schools in Texas would have to prominently display the Ten Commandments in every classroom starting next school year under a bill the Texas Senate approved Thursday. Senate Bill 1515 by Sen. Phil King, R-Weatherford, now heads to the House for consideration.
This is the latest attempt from Texas Republicans to inject religion into public schools. In 2021, state Sen. Bryan Hughes, a Mineola Republican, authored a bill that became law requiring schools to display donated “In God We Trust” signs.
The Senate also gave final passage to Senate Bill 1396, authored by Sen. Mayes Middleton [photo], R-Galveston, which would allow public and charter schools to adopt a policy requiring every campus to set aside a time for students and employees to read the Bible or other religious texts and to pray.
In 1980 the United States Supreme Court ruled against the state of Kentucky for essentially trying the same thing.
“We conclude that Kentucky’s statute requiring the posting of the Ten Commandments in public school rooms has no secular legislative purpose, and is therefore unconstitutional.” – U.S. Supreme Court, Stone v. Graham, 1980.
Let the lawsuit preparations begin!

I support separation between church and state. It angers me that religion is being forced down our throats … we are supposed to have freedom of religion … even no religion.
We need to bring back the TEN Commandments to the school’s ever since the took them out of the school’s all this shootings started, we need to bring them back
