The Ten Commandments, and God seem to be under attack from about every corner of society, dumb as that is. Oddly, society is in turmoil in every direction. Do yo suppose that the one thing just might have something to do with other?
Maybe we could compromise. The libs love the concept of compromise. They also love the idea of keeping The Ten Commandments out of the courts, schools and colleges. Why can’t we allow some of them back in? What would be wrong about teaching one and all, Thou shalt not murder?
Just maybe it should be required to be posted in every courtroom, every classroom and every lecture hall. Just what would that hurt. Why should anyone fear those words.
While we’re at it, maybe we could also post Thou shalt not bear false witness. Is there anyone who is openly in favor of murder and false statements. It is truly divine common sense to be against those things. Truly, if these evils are discouraged, how can it cause harm.
While we are at it, maybe we should be taught from our childhood that theft bad. What is the harm of posting virtually everywhere, Thou shalt not steal? Are we really afraid that it would destroy anything but evil.
Indeed, maybe it’s a good thing to rethink this idea of banning the posting of The Ten Commandments. Do you suppose that the real common sense approach to fixing all these recent day’s problems is to put The Ten Commandments back into our society.
Then again, maybe we can’t do that because it makes those who prefer the darkness over light uncomfortable. After all, what liar would want to see, “Thou shalt not bear false witness,” everywhere they go. What adulterer wants to see, “Thou shalt not commit adultery, ” everywhere look.
You see, no one wants to look in the mirror and see the ugliness in their life. The pain in the conscience is just so, so great.
