Let me see if I have this right: The Ten Commandments are being legally cast out from virtually all government sites.
If the Sixth Commandment is gone, may we kill? I guess so -- to a total of more than 1 million abortions a year, and with the threat of the elderly being targets of Obamacare.
If the Seventh Commandment goes, anything sexual is OK. I guess so. More than 50 percent of marriages are said to end in divorce, increasing illicit sexuality everywhere.
If the Eighth Commandment goes, no one owns anything -- everyone else has a right to it. I guess so -- with a rapacity of petty theft, corporate embezzlement and government redistribution and confiscation.
If the Ninth Commandment goes, "honesty is the best policy" goes. I guess so. If a politician's lips are moving -- well, you know the lawyer joke.
If the 10th Commandment -- well, you get the picture.
I am waiting for what rules, ethics, values and virtues the leftists, secularists, humanists and other non-Bible- believers can substitute in the place of the Ten Commandments.
I am still waiting.
I only ask this: How can any society socially or legally run orderly without the Ten Commandments? It cannot. Need I say more about the absolute chaos that our country is facing? Thank you, secularists in power, for what you have given us and how you are destroying our country.
I am still waiting for your superior moral and legal code.
