We have always been willing to roll with public display of the Ten Commandments -- as long as the rest of Mosaic law is placed on exhibit alongside them. It's all God's law; why pick and choose?
- And he that curseth his father, or his mother, shall surely be put to death. (This would eliminate most of the young rebellious iconoclasts planning to vote for the Greens or Kerry).
- And if a woman have an issue, and her issue in her flesh be blood, she shall be put apart seven days: and whosoever touches her shall be unclean until the even. (This might be a way to reduce the number of female voters who tend to vote Democrat!)
- They shall not make baldness upon their head, neither shall they shave off the corner of their beard, nor make any cuttings in their flesh. (This would eliminate the punks and Goths who tend to vote for the left.)
And so on... Looking at the list, I think the Republicans have it right: God is a Republican.
The Mirthful Ones also discusses the 10 Commandments issue (but with less mirthfulness).
