Louisiana Governor Signs Bill Requiring Ten Commandments in Classrooms; Trump Applauds Move

Louisiana Governor Jeff Landry signed a bill requiring every classroom in the state to display a copy of the Ten Commandments. Former President Donald Trump expressed his approval of the move. On Friday, Trump wrote on Truth Social that he was enthusiastic about the decision. 

“I LOVE THE TEN COMMANDMENTS IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS, PRIVATE SCHOOLS, AND MANY OTHER PLACES, FOR THAT MATTER,” Trump wrote on Truth Social. “READ IT — HOW CAN WE, AS A NATION, GO WRONG??? THIS MAY BE, IN FACT, THE FIRST MAJOR STEP IN THE REVIVAL OF RELIGION, WHICH IS DESPERATELY NEEDED, IN OUR COUNTRY. BRING BACK TTC!!! MAGA2024.”

The new law, signed by Governor Landry on Thursday, mandates that the Biblical covenant be displayed “in a large, easily readable font” on a poster no smaller than 11 by 14 inches in every state-funded school, from kindergarten to university level.

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) announced Wednesday that they would sue the state to have the law repealed. “Public schools are not Sunday schools,” the civil rights group wrote on X.

Despite the legal challenges, other states may attempt to follow suit. Texas Republican Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick expressed frustration on X, stating, “Texas WOULD have been and SHOULD have been the first state in the nation to put the 10 Commandments back in our schools,” blaming Democratic legislators for blocking the measure.
