More prayer in Louisiana schools? State Senate backs proposal to allow it

The Louisiana Senate has backed a proposal that opens the door to school employees praying with their students during the class day.

Senate Bill 512 by Sen. Ryan Gatti, a Bossier City Republican, would allow teachers and other workers to pray with students during the workday, if parents of every student in attendance submit a signed request and if the prayer is student-initiated.

Senators voted 29-0 Thursday for the bill with no debate. The vote sent the measure to the House for consideration.

Current Louisiana law already allows school employees to attend and participate in student-led prayer events if they occur before or after their work day.

1. And thus, one of our most backward States...

...takes yet another step to stay that way.

Since the American Civil War, the Southern States have consistently voted for the candidate who is most backward, racist, bigoted and least likely to support working class people improving their own standard of living.

For almost a hundred years they would not support the "Party of Lincoln". Then, they left the Democratic Party because of Civil Rights legislation being passed by the Democrats.

You would think they would wake up and decide improving their, and their neighbor's, standards of living would matter. But no, evangelicalism, racism, and bigotry have to come first for them.

2. Matthew 6:5-6

The Bible has a name for those people, HYPOCRITES...it even says so in the passage!!!

"And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full."

"But when you pray, go into your inner room, shut your door, and pray to your Father, who is unseen. And your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you."
