Louisiana Becomes First State To Require The Ten Commandments Be In Displayed In Classrooms

 Louisiana this week became the first state in the country to require that the Ten Commandments are displayed in every public classroom in the state.

Governor Jeff Landry (R) signed the new law on Wednesday during the middle of Pride Month as woke teachers across the country display far-Left LGBT and transgender flags in classrooms.

Left-wing organizations vowed to challenge the new law in court while proponents said that displaying the Ten Commandments in classrooms was not just about religion, but “part of our state and national history, culture, and tradition”

The Ten Commandments are to be posted in every classroom “in a large, easily readable font” at every institution that receives public funding.

The text of the posters must state:

The Ten Commandments
I AM the LORD thy God.
Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
Thou shalt not make to thyself any graven images.
Thou shalt not take the Name of the Lord thy God in vain.
Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.
Honor thy father and thy mother, that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.
Thou shalt not kill.
Thou shalt not commit adultery.
Thou shalt not steal.
Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.
Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s house.

Included on the posters, the following context statement must be included:

The History of the Ten Commandments in American Public Education 

The Ten Commandments were a prominent part of American public education for almost three centuries. Around the year 1688, The New England Primer became the first published American textbook and was the equivalent of a first grade reader. The New England Primer was used in public schools throughout the United States for more than one hundred fifty years to teach Americans to read and contained more than forty questions about the Ten Commandments. 

The Ten Commandments were also included in public school textbooks published by educator William McGuffey, a noted university president and professor. A version of his famous McGuffey Readers was written in the early 1800s and became one of the most popular textbooks in the history of American education, selling more than one hundred million copies. Copies of the McGuffey Readers are still available today.

Landry said in a statement that the new law helps fulfill the Republican-dominated state’s “promise to bring drastic reform to our education system and bring common sense back to our classrooms.”


“A strong education system leads to a strong economy and a strong state,” he said. “Our historic Dream Big Package puts the focus back on our kids, and allows Louisiana to follow in the footsteps of our neighbors in the South. I am thankful to the legislature for their commitment to making the education system in Louisiana one that students, parents, and teachers can all be proud of.”
