Louisiana Passes Bill Mandating Public Schools to Display Ten Commandments 

In the midst of movements that have systematically removed God from public schools, the state of Louisiana is attempting to require all public schools to display the Ten Commandments. 

A bill mandating all public schools to display the Ten Commandments has passed the Louisiana state Legislature and is now awaiting Governor Jeff Landry’s signature to become official law.

The legislation specifies that the Ten Commandments must be printed on posters at least 11 inches by 14 inches in size, according to Nola.com.

Rep Dodie Horton, who introduced the bill, responded to pushback about teachers who might not follow the ten Commandments with, "I'm not concerned with an atheist. I'm not concerned with a Muslim,..."I'm concerned with our children looking and seeing what God's law is."

Opponents insist this bill violates the First Amendment, which prohibits government establishment of religion. This opposition is not limited to people outside of the Catholic faith: Sen. Royce Duplessis, D-New Orleans, who is a practicing Catholic, said, "I didn't have to learn the Ten Commandments in school. We went to Sunday school. You want your kids to learn about the Ten Commandments, take them to church."

Civil rights organizations like the ACLU, Americans United for Separation of Church and State, and the Southern Poverty Law Center are also against the bill.

The Supreme Court ruled in 1980 that classroom displays of the Ten Commandments are unconstitutional. However, Horton pointed to the 2022 Supreme Court case Kennedy v. Bremerton School District, suggesting it changes the legal landscape regarding personal religious observance and the First Amendment.

The bill mandates the use of the Protestant text of the Ten Commandments, featuring Elizabethan language from the King James Bible, which differs significantly from versions used by Catholics, Jews, and others, according to The Hill.

Utah is also considering similar legislation to require schools to display the Ten Commandments in classrooms.

De Niro Appears at Biden Campaign Event in New York City

Yesterday, the Biden campaign staged an intriguing press conference outside the NYC courtroom to assert the President's non-involvement in the prosecution of his political opponent.

However, the event encountered a few hiccups, starting with an incorrect date on the media advisory.

The press conference featured actor Robert De Niro, who wore a mask despite the 80-degree spring weather, and two Capitol police officers—one who has been criticized for his statements about the January 6th events, and another known for his controversial behavior in DC bars.

They spent the whole thing getting drowned out by Trump supporters yelling "FJB" and they had to answer questions such as "is Trump a threat to all these wars Biden has gotten us in."

De Niro built his career portraying working-class Italian-Americans, but yesterday he demonstrated how out of touch he is with actual working-class Americans. To quote his character in A Bronx Tale...

"The saddest thing in life is wasted talent.”

GOOD NEWS CORNER

Seaman 1st Class Frank Hryniewicz of Three Rivers, Massachusetts, was one of 429 U.S. service members killed aboard the USS Oklahoma when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941.

Frank was just 20 years old when he was killed in the surprise attack. He had joined the Navy less than two years before with the desire to see the world.

More than 80 years later, he was finally laid to rest at Arlington National Cemetery earlier this month. [Read More]

REEL OF THE DAY

NEW: Actor Dennis Quaid tells Piers Morgan that he plans on voting for Donald Trump in the 2024 election.

Quaid said that Trump may be an 'a**hole' but 'he's my a**hole.' The actor said he wasn't going to vote for Trump until he witnessed the weaponization of the justice system.

"I was ready not to vote for Trump... [It] is more than politics. I see a weaponization of our justice system."

"Trump is the most investigative person probably in the history of the world, and they haven't been able to really get him."

"People might call him an a**hole, but he is my a**hole." Video:
