It’s Time We Bring Christ Back To School

State Rep. Dan Flynn of Van wants to make sure that any Texas teacher who wants to display the Ten Commandments in his or her classroom may do so.

That’s why he filed House Bill 307 that says school officials — particularly school board trustees — cannot prevent copies of those commandments from being posted “in a prominent location” in classrooms.

“I think it’s a good idea,” said Flynn. “If a teacher wants to put it in her classroom, she should be able to do it just as if she wanted to put up Halloween, Thanksgiving or any other decorations.

“I think it’s a good list of disciplines that young people would find very meaningful to them.”

Public displays of the Ten Commandments have sparked legal battles in the past.And this one likely will too, if Texas lawmakers approve it during the upcoming legislative session that begins Jan. 8.

“It’s unconstitutional,” said Bob Tuttle, a professor of law and religion at the George Washington University Law School. “The government is limited in its ability to display religious messages.

    Our country is based on the ten commandments! Our laws were based on the ten commandments!!
    Separation of church and state in no where in our Constitution!!!! In fact our founding fathers said that with out godly moral’s and ethics we will not have a free country. That feeling is being shown to be true today. Lack of morals and greed turn to dictator’s…
    NOT ONLY PUT THE TEN COMMANDMENTS BACK IN SCHOOL BUT ADD THE FIRST PRIMER USED IN OUR COUNTRY….THE BIBLE!!!!!(:
