Oklahoma Hermeneutics

Just how stupid can the religious right get? This stupid:

This week, a far-right state legislator in Oklahoma pushed a measure to have a Ten Commandments monument placed on the Capitol grounds. Asked which version of the Decalogue would receive the state's endorsement -- Catholics, Protestants, and Jews list the Commandments differently -- state Sen. Randy Brogdon (R) said, "Probably an Oklahoma version." I don't think he was kidding

Typical. I'll bet he can't even name the 10 Commandments.

There is also a Jewish version; in fact that should be THE version. I'll have to see if I can wing it.

There is also the version that Jesus was supposed to have quoted (he didn't get it right either; he listed "you shall not defraud" as one of them.

No kidding Harriet. I think if more of these ignoramuses knew wha the 10 Commandments actually were, they'd understand how ridiculous it is to claim our laws are based on them.

Why stop at 10? They should list the hundreds of commandments gawd allegedly gave to the Jewish people.

Ah, but that would reveal how silly they are, wouldn't it?
