From the they-never-seem-to-learn-the-first-time department comes this news item about legislation in Alabama that would make posting of the Ten Commandments and a daily recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance mandatory parts of every school in the state despite successful Supreme Court challenges disallowing similar practices in other states.
Bills that would put both requirements into law won approval in the state Senate Education Committee on Wednesday and now go to the Senate for consideration.
The committee voted 6-3 for a bill by Sen. Curt Lee, R-Jasper, that would require each public school in Alabama to display framed or mounted copies of the Ten Commandments, Magna Carta, Declaration of Independence and Bill of Rights.
Lee said the documents provide the foundation for American government and they should be on display daily in every public school in Alabama.
Sometimes it seems like some states are just hell bent on shoving their religion down everyone else’s throat whether we like it or not and to hell with whatever the Supreme Court has already decided. Your kids will be indoctrinated come hell or high water if they have their way.
