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.
