Louisiana governor signs law requiring Ten Commandments in schools

by ian

Louisiana is now the first state to require the Ten Commandments to be on display in every public classroom. Gov. Jeff Landry signed the bill yesterday.

The law applies to all public classrooms, from kindergarten up to state-funded universities. The ACLU and other groups are promising to sue, saying the law violates the separation of church and state. In 1980, the Supreme Court struck down a similar law in Kentucky.
