The Republican-led Alabama House of Representatives has approved a bill aimed at allowing the Ten Commandments to be displayed in public schools and state buildings. The vote was 77-19. All the "no" votes came from Democrats. State Rep. DuWayne Bridges (R-Valley) said Alabama should celebrate the country's religious roots. Opponents claimed the proposal is unconstitutional. The measure is a state constitutional amendment. If approved by the Senate, it would go to a statewide vote. Bridges predicted Alabamians would overwhelmingly approve the measure.
