dust off your prayer mats

Not that anyone in the US fucking cares anymore, but Bush is removing a few more bricks from that nasty old wall that our founding fathers built between Church and State.

Dec. 8 (Bloomberg) — The Bush administration, saying that religion “has played a defining role” in the nation’s history, urged the U.S. Supreme Court to permit Ten Commandments displays in courthouses.

The Justice Department today filed a brief supporting two Kentucky counties accused of violating the constitutional ban on government establishment of religion by posting framed copies of the Ten Commandments…

One just wonders which ten commandments they’ll choose.

    Commandment One:
    “Don’t ask any questions.”

    Commandment Two:
    “Submit Completely.”

    Commandment Three:
    “Spend and Accumulate.”

    — I’ll let someone else contribute a few now.

    I think the trick is to spin it in a more negative tone:

    4. Thou shalt not formally celebrate your relationship if you are of the same gender.

    5. Thou shalt not use your body as an amusement park.

    6. Thou shalt not impede big business even at the detriment of the individual.

    I think I could get into this commandment writing thing!

    “Thou shalt aspire to wealth and fame, and vote as though you will one day have both.”

    LOVE your commandmant, Mark! It is too true, incredibly enough.

    Thou shalt only read the Bible, like our President, but apparently you only have to read it every ten years or so.
