The Ten Commandments must be displayed in all classrooms in Louisiana

On Wednesday, the state of Louisiana imposed the display of the “Ten Commandments” in all classrooms in this conservative state located in the south of the United States, in a first step that revives the debate over the separation of church and state.

Louisiana's Republican governor, Jeff Landry, signed a bill providing this offer in all public schools – from kindergartens to universities – with state funding, starting next year.

“Because if we want to respect the rule of law, we have to start from the original Sharia, the Law of Moses,” he said during the signing ceremony.

The law requires that the Ten Commandments be displayed on posters or in a frame “large enough and in suitable font to be readable.”

The ACLU immediately indicated that it would take the matter to court.

“The law violates the separation of church and state and is clearly unconstitutional,” she said in a statement.

The First Amendment to the United States Constitution prohibits the establishment of a national religion or the preference of one religion over another.

Other conservative states in the Bible Belt of the southern United States have tried to adopt similar measures, but this is the first time a state has written this law into law.
