Putting God Back in Schools

The Texas Senate has passed a couple of bills that aim to put God back in the Lone Star state's schools. One bill requires all public schools in Texas to display the Ten Commandments. The second bill would require public schools to give students and staff a daily period of time to pray. That bill also permits teachers to read the Bible and other religious texts as part of the curriculum. Both bills were pushed by Senate Republicans and passed by identical 17 to 12 votes. The bills now advance to the Texas House of Representatives.

Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick is strongly pushing the two proposals, saying that "allowing the Ten Commandments and prayer back into our public schools is one step we can take to make sure that all Texans have the right to freely express their sincerely held beliefs."

JDFI applauds the Texas Senate for passing the bills and strongly urges the Texas House to do the same. When school prayer and Bible reading were banned by the Supreme Court in 1962, American education began a 60-year decline that has put American education in crisis. Restoring Judeo/Christian values to the classroom will begin the long road back.

Vote for the Supreme Court?

There are many reasons Christians must vote in record numbers this November. Our country will elect a president, one-third of the Senate, and all 435 seats in the House of Representatives. Supreme Court justices are not elected. The president makes nominations, and then they must receive a majority vote in the Senate.

The attempted assassination of our 45th President, Donald J. Trump, and the murder and injuring of his supporters in Butler, PA, were appalling and tragic. Many have described this historical event as surreal, and it does not reflect the America envisioned by our Founding Fathers or the overwhelming majority of the American people.
