KS House Bill Allows Religious Symbols on Public Land

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — The Kansas House is considering a bill that would allow some religious symbols on public lands. The religious symbols would be permitted if they are part of the community's history or heritage. The Wichita Eagle reports that the bill is a reaction to an incident last summer, when a group threatened to sue the town of Buhler because its official city sign included a cross. The town replaced it with similar signs on private land. The bill would also allow religious displays in public schools, if they are part of a course of study. Representative Don Schroeder of Hesston told a House committee Thursday that he believed religious displays like Buhler's do not violate the U.S. Constitution. House Majority Leader Arlen Siegfried expects a vote on the bill next week.
