New Texas Bill Would Mandate a 10 Commandments Display in Every Public School Classroom

The organization Texas Impact urges opposition to SB 1515, noting: “Protestants, Jews, and Catholics number the commandments differently. Government posting any version favors one denomination over another, which is the essence of what the Establishment Clause was intended to prohibit.”

Attorney Andrew Seidel with the Freedom From Religion Foundation had described a previous effort to display the 10 Commandments in Texas classrooms as “an attempt to use the machinery of the state to impose religion on a captive audience of children.” He added, “That is precisely what our Constitution prohibits.”
