Oh yes, for shame I can think of nothing worse for our country to have a Christian as a Governor, holy cow what could be worse than having the 10 Commandments on State property touting terrible thing like "Thou shalt not Kill and Thou Shalt not Steal and Honor thy Father and thy Mother. It doesn't get any worse for the country than that. WOW
Oh the horror of it all.
From the article:
|"As our taxes continue to rise, the education of our children continues to decline," Moore said. "And at a time when morality seems to be disappearing, our courts are preoccupied with telling children they can't pray and telling public officials they can't acknowledge the God that is the source of our morality."
I suppose I shouldn't actually expect logic from him, but the logical conclusion of such a statement is that without "the God" (his) there is no morality.
The 10 Commandments from 3-10 are a good set of standards for anyone to live by, but
1. Thou shalt have no other god before Me.
2. Remember the Sabbath and keep it Holy.
are the problematic ones for anyone whose religion is not a Judeo-based one to be posted as the single monument by a governmental entity.
Oh, and BTW, I would venture a guess that out of 50 states, 50 of them have Christians for governors. OK, maybe one or two who may be another major religion. No one could get elected to major office who is an atheist, agnostic, pagan, satanist, etc. Religion already is a major factor in American politics and Christians hold the overwhelming majority.
