Ten Commandment Weekend?? WTF...

You have GOT to be kidding. I have SO not been paying enough attention.

I know that the administration is more than well-known for blurring and obliterating the lines between church and state, but Congress sure as hell doesn't need to help that along!

Did you know that for the past two years, Congress has designated the first weekend in May as "Ten Commandments Weekend (TCW)?" Most of us pay little attention to congressional resolutions. All sorts of resolutions are proposed; some pass, others are tabled, and still others are withdrawn.

These days, two resolutions relating to the Ten Commandments are being considered by Congress; one will again designate the first weekend in May as "Ten Commandments Weekend," while the other aims to celebrate the Ten Commandments Commission (TCC), an organization led by a former veteran of the Israeli Armed Forces, and made up of a host longtime conservative evangelical Christian leaders.

Nevermind the tanking economy, soldiers and civilians dying in Iraq and Afganistan, or any of the other non-important things...let's spend our time continuing to pander to people who could give a crap about reality or their fellow human beings who suffer at the hands of their insane priorities.
And here is the rest of it.

Here are Ten Commandments that Congress should make its top priority:

1. Work on things that matter!

2. Work on things that matter!

3. Work on things that matter . . .

You get the idea.

Wonder who came up with that bright idea. I'm pretty sure their job isn't based on religion. That's the most outrageous thing i've heard in a while. These people need to get back to reality and work on our economy. They have no right making a decision like that.
