Quote# 43932

A Christian organization is pressuring the community of Elberton, Ga., to tear down a massive, granite monument that lists an alternative set of Ten Commandments that the organization labels satanic.

The monument, known as the Georgia Guidestones, was built under a cloud of mystery in 1980. It lists 10 commandments in eight different languages, including a call to establish a new world language, limit human population to 500 million and avoid being "a cancer on the Earth."

"We have atheists and Satanists getting the Bible's Ten Commandments removed from public property," said Mark Dice, spokesman for the group The Resistance, "yet the satanic Georgia Guidestones have stood for decades, and nobody seems to care. Well, we do."

The Georgia Guidestones are on PRIVATE PROPERTY. We're only stopping you from putting the 10 Commandments up on public property, which would be against the first amendment.

Yup, Bubba and Cletus will use their pick-em-up trucks to hammer the Guidestones into rubble.

If you want a giant Ten Commandments monument in your yard, go for it. Mark Dice is obviously an idiot who doesn't see the difference between private and public property.

Allegory for Jesus

If it wasn't put in place by actual Satanists, than it is not religious, and not considered "Satanic" by definitions outside of the imaginations of fundamentalists. Therefore, you lose.

Edit: Wait...the guidestones aren't even on public property? What the fuck, Fundies!?

They aren't the 10 Commandments strictly speaking.

This is what's written on it:
Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.
Guide reproduction wisely — improving fitness and diversity.
Unite humanity with a living new language.
Rule passion — faith — tradition — and all things with tempered reason.
Protect people and nations with fair laws and just courts.
Let all nations rule internally resolving external disputes in a world court.
Avoid petty laws and useless officials.
Balance personal rights with social duties.
Prize truth — beauty — love — seeking harmony with the infinite.
Be not a cancer on the earth — Leave room for nature — Leave room for nature.

My bad, didn't read this properly!!! xP Since they're on private property, in accordance with right-wing thinking they'd be better off not intruding into that.

Yet, the Humanist statue in Olympia, Washington, is untouched.

Paradoxes. Aren't they such bitches, eh...?! >:D

And doubly so in your case, re. the 10 Commandments; watch out for that 2nd one, it's a real doozy!
