However the man in the White House is seemingly unaware of the Commandment stating "Thou shalt not kill."

Not "Thou shalt not kill except for oil." Not "Thou shalt not kill, except Arabs". Not "Thou shalt not kill, except in retaliation."

Just, "Thou shalt not kill".
It's actually more closely translated as "thou shalt not murder", which is a far cry from "thou shalt not kill"

I've never understood why the Ten Commandments are considered historically relevant in the context of a courthouse or a courtroom. I realize laws against theft, murder and so on could be traced back to the Ten Commandments, but even if that is the case, we don't have laws requiring people to keep the Sabbath holy (such a law would go against one of the biggest principles our country was founded on - freedom of religion). We also don't have laws saying you can't covet your neighbor's spouse or goods. The Ten Commandments may be a moral code, but they are not a legal document.

Is there anything that tells you what to believe?
The Ten Commandments were in the Bible. That's evidence enough. If they weren't in the Bible, then no one would be remotely interested in posting them.

My main concern with this, is that these higher power liberals, are little by little taking more and more what this country was built on. First it was Prayer in School, Gods name on Money, etc... Americas morals are slipping. What wrong do the 10 commandments do? Nothing, if anything they help to live a moral life, I just dont understand how it offends people, for 200+ theyve been there, America is slowy drifting from what it was built on, seriously, pretty soon its gone to be our god given rights.

This country was built on Enlightenment-era agnosticism and the separation of church and state.

Evangelical Christianity came 50 years too late, but felt completely free to rewrite history in their image.

I'm pissed that religious fanatics are ruining what this country was built on. If they hate America and it's liberal heritage, they can pick up and move to Iran, where they have a democracy with a theocratic overhead just like Jerry Falwell wishes he could have.

So printing 'God' on money and posting the 10 commandments will increase America's morality?

They may help you live a more moral life but not all.

What wrong do they do? They divide, just take a look around and not through your own religion's glasses.

Im unsure of your history lessons, please direct me where I can read about this.

How are the religious fanatics ruining what this country was built on? Why do you think they hate America? I m not a religious fanatic, but I do have high standards and morals, and so did this country when it was formed. "In the past 50 years we have seen huge increases in violent crimes, drug use, teenage pregnancy, and divorce. We have also seen God taken out of our schools, our courtrooms, and our workplaces. In 1973 it became legal to murder an unborn baby out of convenience for the mom, and to protect her "rights" without any discussion of the babies' rights. The sins of our nation rise as high as the heavens. Pornography, adultery, and homosexuality have become accepted ways to express our God-given sensual desires. Rape, murder, and rage have filled our streets, and our schools."

Are you so blind to not see that this country is falling in its morals and standards that it was built upon. GOD BLESS AMERICA!
