A Jewish state legislator from Kentucky was questioned about her religious beliefs during discussion about a bill that would allow the Ten Commandments to be posted in classrooms and public property. State Rep. Kathy Stein responded to questions about Jesus by saying “the Jewish faith does not believe he was the messiah.” The bill, which the House passed by a vote of 77-17, now goes to the state Senate.
