Even in the South, the Ten Commandments Are Treated Like Suggestions…

Alabama Media Group columnist John Archibald has an amusing article up about how people in the South claim to love their Bibles… but they’re pretty awful at following the Ten Commandments:

No. 5. Honor thy father and thy mother.

Ain’t nothing like mom and dad down South. Until you have to pay for them. All of the states across the deep South have refused to expand Medicaid, because people see it as a handout to poor mothers and their dad-gum kids. What they don’t see is that two-thirds of the Medicaid budget goes to struggling old folks and people with disabilities. Suck it mom and dad.

Fail.

They fail at the “no killing” and “no stealing” bits, too.

A lot of the commenters are furious that someone is pointing any of this out because Christians hypocrites? Never…
