The Louisiana Supreme Court rules that it's unconstitutional for public schools in Caddo Parish to open the school day with Bible readings and recitation of the Lord's Prayer.

The lawsuit had been filed by Jewish and Catholic parents.

Earlier in the month, an editorial in the Catholic paper Morning Start explained the reasoning behind the lawsuit:

"We are not protesting against the reading of the Bible in the schools, but we do object to the placing in the hands of Catholic children of a perverted version of the Scriptures, compiled by Protestants in the interest of Protestant teaching."
