Opinion: Ten Commandments and school prayer – an issue that’s not going away

(CNN) — In Texas, legislators have been weighing a raft of new bills to bring more Christianity into the classroom: bills mandating schools to post the Ten Commandments, to set aside prayer time during the school day, to allow public employees to “engage in religious prayer and speech.”

All are aimed at advancing a particular vision of religious liberty: one in which the government not only must allow for the free practice of religion, but has a role to play in promoting the Christian faith.
