Adding to the list of theocratically-leaning government sponsored bills, you may now look forward (PDF) to the first weekend in May:
Recognizing the first weekend of May 2008 as ‘‘Ten Commandments Weekend’’.
Are you %&$#ing kidding me?
Sam Brownback (R-KS) submitted the resolution.
Joe Lieberman (I(?)-CT) is the only co-sponsor.
Why do we need this…?
“It is important for Americans to remember the importance the Ten Commandments have in our nation,” said Brownback. “The Ten Commandments are the cornerstone to the faith of millions of Americans of many faith traditions, and are a cornerstone to a fair and just society. We as a nation should take a weekend to reflect on the impact the Ten Commandments have had on the foundation of America’s national life.”
Because as we all know, no one ever remembers the Ten Commandments.
What does the resolution involve?
Now, therefore, be it
Resolved, That the Senate–
(1) recognizes the first weekend of May 2008 as “Ten Commandments Weekend”;
(2) celebrates the Ten Commandments as a significant aspect of the national life of the United States; and
(3) encourages citizens of the United States to reflect on the integral role that the Ten Commandments have played in the life of the Nation.
So many questions…
Which version of the Ten Commandments is Brownback referring to?
What do the first four Commandments have to do with anything?
Whom do I dislike more: Brownback or Lieberman?
The bill’s currently in committee…
