Quote# 43869

["Yeah, because "Thou shalt have no other gods before me" belongs in a public building. I'm not offended by the Ten Commandments on buildings any more than I'm offended by graffiti on the sides of public buildings. They're both illegal, but the former is far more illegal than the later."]


See, this is what I'm talking about. So having the other 9 commandments is okay with you? It's just the first? I doubt that. The very Idea that anyone would obey not out of self-interest, but out of love and respect for a being who is so much more than you could possibly comprehend ... that's what bothers you.

I understand it's painful to be surrounded by the truth - but don't take it out on others because you feel inadequate in the face of the divine. It'll pass. We'll pray for you.

No, you moron, the first four commandments are about how to worship the Hebrew god. That's the damn problem.

4. There be enough meat between the ears of godzombies for an infinite supply of meatballs.

Unfortunately, from a certain standpoint, I don't have a problem per se with the 10 Commandments being in a federal building where law is written or adjudicated.

In a purely historical context, I'm fine with copies of several ancient codices being on display to show how law and social norms have evolved with civilization. Especially for educational/decorative purposes.

Key word being several.

Bonus trivia: The Supreme Court's frieze depicts many instances of iconic laws, among which is Moses who is carrying the Ten Commandments. Unfortunately, Moses's beard obstructs many of the words on the stone block, making it read:
Steal
Kill
Commit Adultery
