Quote# 64377

[Minister's son believes it should be illegal to post the Ten Commandments in government buildings.]

Run him out of town. Have businesses refuse to do business with him. People have to start standing up to these people. He needs to learn the law, because posting them is not illegal. Then again, our ideas and beliefs are outdated. When we let the few push us around, we get what we don't stand up for. That's why we are where we are in this country today.

Doctor Whom

He needs to learn the law

Shiny, shiny mirror.

"He needs to learn the law"

I do believe that's what he did.

Nope, your proposed victim has that law thingy pretty well nailed down.

Being in the majority doesn't mean you are right. Your and your pal's idea that it is acceptable for the majority to push around the minority is one of the biggest flaws in today's America. Not allowing ourselves to be stepped on isn't pushing your lot around.

"posting them is not illegal"

Yes, with one important distinction: it must be on private property. Why is that so hard for you guys to understand? We're not trying to get them taken down everywhere, just where they are not legally appropriate.

7/31/2009 4:25:03 PM


Yeah, try that, and see what happens when you're all cited for harassment.

The Pastor's son in question doesn't believe that posting the 10 Commandments in a government building SHOULD be illegal, he believes that it IS illegal.

And he's right about that.

7/31/2009 4:35:03 PM


"That's why we are where we are in this country today."

How did bulling people who don't share your beliefs help you guys become the majority?

7/31/2009 4:46:42 PM

And you have to learn the law too. He´s protected by freedom of expression.

Fascism for Jesus.
Separation of church and state.
Treaty of Tripoli.

Seriously, arguing with these people is like arguing with a brick- all you do is waste hot air, and they don' hear a damn thing you say.

Fuck you asshole

7/31/2009 5:04:44 PM


It is illegal on public grounds and besides, those commandments are simply a mixture of religious dogma and inherent altruistic traits that have been around far longer than the christian bible.

7/31/2009 5:10:30 PM


your founding fathers say other wise.

state and church. nothing to do with each other.

by law.

suck it.

Caustic Gnostic

You raptards are the laughingstock of this country today. The only groups more dedicated than you to group stupidity have, in one fashion or another, committed mass suicide.

And that is precisely what you are hoping for, innit?

Get with the program. Drink the Flavorade.

Posting the 10 commandments may not be illegal, but it's damnably insensitive.

7/31/2009 6:10:18 PM


I think this is the most wtf thing I have seen in many a day.

7/31/2009 6:17:52 PM


"Run him out of town. Have businesses refuse to do business with him. People have to start standing up to these people."

Didn't someone about 2,000 years ago say something about "Love thy neighbor" and "Turn the other cheek"?

Who was that I wonder...

"He needs to learn the law, because posting them is not illegal."

That depends entirely on where you're posting them, now doesn't it?

Posting them in a government building is, in fact, illegal.

"Then again, our ideas and beliefs are outdated."


"When we let the few push us around, we get what we don't stand up for. That's why we are where we are in this country today."

You got to be in charge of damned near everything by being wallflowers? Funny, I thought it was because you make up the majority of the population and whine incessantly like a spoiled two year old when you don't get your way.

7/31/2009 7:52:38 PM


So in other words, you should persecute him for his beliefs being different from yours.

7/31/2009 8:02:43 PM

Lord X

Actually, fuckwit, the law says you CAN'T put the ten commandments in government buildings due to that pesky separation of church and state thing we've had since 1776.

7/31/2009 8:32:10 PM


This minister's son apparently DOES know the law. It is you, Josh1313, who does not.

7/31/2009 9:31:54 PM

Dr. Novakaine

Refreshing to see a minister's son that hasn't gone over to the batshit side of the equation.

7/31/2009 10:26:11 PM


Ah, MrMann has entered the fray!

Frankly I don't think this guy ought to be run outa town. I think people out to just ignore his ranting and tar and feather the ACLU outa town!

Its the ACLU that needs the abuse. That and there needs to be serious civil disobedience going on. like plastering the 10 Comandments in every wall of every govt building.
The ACLU demonstrates that the time of tar and feathering is not past. These lawyers need someone to stand up to them, dip em in tar, dip em in feathers and drive them outa town with hickory switches!

after this happens about a 100 times they might get the idea.

7/31/2009 10:47:39 PM


I remember this old piece of US law about separation of church and state.

8/1/2009 12:27:13 AM


"run him out of town"?
"have businesses refuse to do business with him"?
"when we let the few push us around..."?

Now what does that remind me of? Ah, yeah, now I remember:

(translation: Germans! Defend yourselves! Don't buy from Jews!)

plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose

Swedish Pagan

Lets post extracts from the Quran, the Bhagavad-Gita and the Kama Sutra next to the Ten Commandments. That way there are alternatives, no forcing of one religion onto others.
I mean, if you got a choice of looking at the Ten Commandments or the Kama Sutra, how many would choose the first one?

BTW, don't most people know the Ten Commandments already? Regardless of level of faithfulness? Maybe not the order or the exact wording, but most people in the Western World have a notion about them. Pushing them onto people everywhere, is just going to make them tired of seeing them. THAT is why you are where you are in that country today.
