Senate committee greenlights Ten Commandments for display on school, state property

Cam Ward

With little discussion, the Senate Judiciary Committee gave a favorable report to SB97 from Sen. Gerald Dial (R-Lineville) allowing the Ten Commandments to be displayed on state property and at public schools.

Committee chairman Sen. Cam Ward (R-Alabaster) noted that the bill has passed out of committee several times over the years and always stalls in one of the legislative bodies.

Sen. Linda Coleman-Madison (D-Fairfield) lodged the only opposition to the bill.

“Whatever happened to the separation of church and state?” she questioned.

Despite the limited opposition, the bill was OK’d within seconds of being brought up.


  1. This is just Alabama’s way of letting the rest of the lawyers in the US know that the state of Alabama is ready to spend money on defending lost causes.

  2. ALABAMA has made the smartest decision EVER!!! And those of YOU who do not AGREE…well that’s your RIGHT…..given to all of US as American citizens in THIS COUNTRY!!! Men and women both have died for YOU to have those rights….now it is our duty to respect THEM!!!
