Lawsuit Challenges Louisiana Law Requiring Display of Ten Commandments in Classrooms

I wonder who could be behind this?


Louisiana was sued on Monday over a new law requiring the display of the Ten Commandments in all public school classrooms in the state.

The complaint said displaying the Ten Commandments violates the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, and “simply cannot be reconciled with the fundamental religious-freedom principles that animated the founding of our nation.”

Nine families, including several clergy, with children in public schools filed the lawsuit in the Baton Rouge, Louisiana federal court, seeking an injunction against the law.

Louisiana became the only U.S. state requiring displays of the Ten Commandments when Governor Jeff Landry, a Republican, signed the law on June 19.

It was never feasible that any state could get away with something like this.

There are powerful people who run the federal government who do not like Christianity, and they were never going to tolerate it.
