Alabama House Approves 10 Commandments Bill

Alabama House Approves 10 Commandments Bill

The Republican-led Alabama House of Representatives has approved a bill aimed at allowing the Ten Commandments to be displayed in public schools and state buildings.  The vote was 77-19.  All the "no" votes came from Democrats.  State Rep. DuWayne Bridges (R-Valley) said Alabama should celebrate the country's religious roots.  Opponents claimed the proposal is unconstitutional.  The measure is a state constitutional amendment.  If approved by the Senate, it would go to a statewide vote.  Bridges predicted Alabamians would overwhelmingly approve the measure.
