AL State Legislators Endorse Religious Education, but Only for Christians

Listen up, Alabama legislators! All y'all who think that you can take taxpayer money & promote your personal religious beliefs or - even worse - use your public elected position to do the same.... take a look at Louisiana before you write any more laws. This past legislative session, Louisiana governor (and rising GOP star) Bobby Jindal championed a "reform" to public education.
