the Great Commandment

This will piss of some geographically placed people, but so be it:

I hate the South so fucking much. 

SO fucking much. 

The Louisiana governor signed into law that all public schools who receive state funding (how is that not all of them?) are required to post the 10 Commandments in each classroom.  

Not each school.  Each Fucking Classroom. 

Let's dispense with the separation of church and state, since there are so many factions who don't understand it, believe it or want it. Of course, they only want their religion recognized. 

This I find hilarious. Christians believe in the 10 Commandments. 

Last I checked, Christ was a New Testament guy. The 10 - which conveniently don't actually physically exist - are Judaic. 

I bet if you told the Louisiana governor you wanted to hang Jewish writings in each school he'd shut you down in a minute. But I get it:  people are stupid. And no one is even following these commandments. None of them. 

Dollars to doughnuts they can't recite them, let alone in order. They certainly don't live by them. 

This just grinds my gears. 

And yes, I'm sticking with the South thing. There aren't many states in general passing laws to actually help people or expand services to anything - but the South in general (Arkansas, Alabama, Florida Louisiana, Texas - for starters) are hell fucking bent on restricting everything. 

They do no good. If it ever gets the slightest amount of repair, it will not be in our lifetime. ....and that is even if a child under 10 is reading this blog. Their lifetime either. 

This is all so fucking heinous it makes me want to vomit. 

Here's hoping someone challenges this state and this douche. Though SCOTUS as it stands now isn't going to be of much help.

Gotta love Mel's "Fifteen, oops... ten. Ten!" commandments. Chances are the Christian right doesn't live by those, either, whatever they were. LOL.

When I heard this on the early morning BBC news, had to pinch myself to check that I wasn't still asleep under some crazy, bad dream - but, alas, no..... Words just fail!!!

Broad statements , I think it’s always good when someone gives their opinion first, as if Ohio was Massachusetts.

Several state I hope to never see again.

Ooh, I knew Dwight would be mad. You two need to hug and make up. Dwight is good people even if he is in Florida.

I bet Raybeard could recite the Ten Commandments -- or fifteen if you pushed him. Obviously the reason people don't follow them is because they are not posted prominently enough, which is why putting them in every classroom is a great idea. In fact, the government should mandate that a copy be placed in every person's bathroom and kitchen too.

Luckily the kids can’t read them

Maybe they should start by making their Orange Savior follow the 10 commandments before they start pushing them on schoolchildren.

I live in South Carolina, and I don't take issue with anything you said. The South (or at least the white people in power down here) fucking suck. This latest stunt is just disgraceful.
