You know how hard it is to memorize the Ten Commandments? (No? Who cares. Work with me here.)
That’s why the folks at Prayer Stop (which, ironically, could double as the name for an atheist group) created a mnemonic to help you remember all of them in order.
It’s so easy, even an 8-year-old can do it:
That gesture, by the way, is for “Thou shalt not commit adultery”… I was shocked they were teaching that to a child until I realized what she was actually trying to do…
You’ll find out what I mean in a moment when the Christian version of Guy Fieri explains it all. Also, pay special attention to how you’re supposed to remember Commandments 5 and 6:
Spanking and breaking out the guns. Because that’s what we should teach the kiddies…
As a mnemonic, it’s actually not that bad. (Congressman Lynn Westmoreland could’ve used it a few years ago.) But the purpose of it — to remind children that they’re all “sinners in need of a savior” — is still pretty damned disturbing.
