Controversial religious bills discussed

Alabama bills range from displaying 10 Commandments to holding daily public school prayer

House legislators discussed four controversial bills relating to religion in committee meetings this week, including one that would require public school teachers to read Christian prayers daily.

Experts say two of the other bills, one that would allow teachers to display images related to “traditional winter celebrations” in schools and one that would give students religious freedoms, are already allowed.

The fourth bill is a constitutional amendment that would allow the Ten Commandments to be displayed in public buildings.
