Action Alert

Tell your Texas reps 10 Commandments don’t belong in public schools!

 

A Texas bill that would require school districts to allow Ten Commandment displays in classrooms is moving quickly through the Texas Legislature, and we need your help to stop it.

HB 307 has shockingly already passed the House Education Committee and will be soon be voted on by the entire House. If it passes, this bill would make it illegal for a school board to “prohibit the posting of a copy of the Ten Commandments in a prominent location in a classroom."

The Supreme Court has ruled that Ten Commandment displays in public schools violate the Establishment Clause, as their religious messages are undeniable. Additionally, FFRF prevailed against two Pennsylvania school districts that hosted Ten Commandment monuments. One district settled with the removal of the monument and more than $163,000 in attorneys fees. This law would open districts up to expensive and unnecessary legal liability. Please use our simple, automated system to contact your representative and ask that they vote no on HB 307.
