Resolved, That the Senate—
- recognizes the first weekend of May 2008 as ‘‘Ten Commandments Weekend’’;
- celebrates the Ten Commandments as a significant aspect of the national life of the United States; and
- encourages citizens of the United States to reflect on the integral role that the Ten Commandments have played in the life of the Nation.
Secondly, most blowhard right-wing xians blather on and on about these commandments without realizing that the biblical penalty for violating them is death.
Thirdly, if we have to have a weekend celebrating a religious list, how about Sermon on the Mount weekend; or just Beatitudes weekend? But for some reason the commandment zealots (and, indeed, a lot of xians) don't embrace that particular part of the bible so much. I wonder why? OK, I know why Lieberman doesn't, he's Jewish; but what about Brownback?
Fourth, and most importantly, don't you think the US Senate should have better and more important things to tend to?
