CWN Editor's Note: Louisiana lawmakers have passed legislation requiring the posting of the Ten Commandments in all public school and public college classrooms.

The legislation passed by large margins: 79-16 in the state house and 30-8 in the state senate. The bill states that “the historical role of the Ten Commandments accords with our nation’s history and faithfully reflects the understanding of the founders of our nation with respect to the necessity of civic morality to a functional self-government.”
