More On the Ten Commandments
It has been a couple days, but I still cannot get the Ten Commandments debate in Alabama out of my mind. It would seem that an elite and condescending few have decided for the rest of us (through dubious constitutional maneuvering) that God has no place in public life.
In a very small (miniscule, actually) attemp to show solidarity with those who are taking the stand (and the heat) in Alabama, I will now post the Ten Commandments in their entirety as they appeared in the rotunda of the Alabama Judicial Building.
I am the Lord thy God
Thou shalt have no other gods before Me
Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image
Thou shalt not take the Name of the Lord thy God in vain
Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy
Honour thy father and thy mother
Thou shalt not kill
Thou shalt not commit adultery
Thou shalt not steal
Thou shalt not bear false witness
Thou shalt not covet
These are not options, they are laws. They are not subject to public opinion or human decree. Removing them from man's courtroom is not advisable. Removing them from God's courtroom is impossible.
