State Rep Wants 10 Commandments In Schools

CANTON (CBSDFW.COM) - State Representative Dan Flynn of Canton wants the Ten Commandments to be displayed in Texas public schools.  He's filed a bill giving schools the option to put the commandments in the classrooms and common areas.

Representative Flynn says he does not believe putting the Commandments in the schools violates the separation of church and state.  He points out the Ten Commandments are prominently displayed in the U.S. Supreme Court building.

Flynn says he'll make every effort to get the Legislature to pass the bill during the upcoming session that starts in January.
