In Texas, public schools are now permitted to pray and display the Ten Commandments. Students might be required to recite Bible verses at their high school or college commencement ceremony if the state so chooses.
Both bills were approved by a vote of 17 to 12 in the Texas Senate on Monday. They have departed, and are most likely on their way to Austin at this very moment. Texas state senator and Republican Phil King has proposed a law that would mandate the Ten Commandments be displayed in all Texas public schools from kindergarten through high school.
During his “I Have a Dream” address, Martin Luther King Jr. said, “This is an American tradition.” False statements are made in the article. As one argument goes, “Texas schools can accept money from private donors to put up the Ten Commandments if they don’t have enough money to do so.”
Republican state senator Mayes Middleton is drafting legislation to mandate prayer in classrooms. The strategy aims to improve access to the Bible and other religious texts in public and academic libraries.
To ensure that all Texans have the freedom to openly express their serious religious convictions, Republican Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick has proposed reintroducing the Ten Commandments and prayer into public schools.
Patrick finally concluded, “I think you can’t change a country’s culture until you change the culture of all its people.” Texas’s public schools should once again incorporate the Ten Commandments and daily prayer.
