GOVERNOR HALEY BARBOUR SIGNS TEN COMMANDMENTS BILL

(Jackson, Miss.) – Governor Haley Barbour yesterday signed Senate Bill 2486, that authorizes the display of “In God We Trust,” the Ten Commandments, and the Beatitudes at public buildings and property in Mississippi.

“When I went to Yazoo High, we started each day with prayer and a Ten Commandments monument stood right outside the front door, on the grounds of our school,” said Governor Barbour. “Those were good things back then, and they would be good things today.”

Barbour has the Ten Commandments on display in his Capitol office.
