Re: The Tens of Commandments

Awesome post, Ian - the God of Exodus is indeed way fucked up.

My only real comment is on #2 - no graven images. I just want to say that you could argue that we're going to start approaching that with the flag-burning amendment, if it ever actually gets passed. Our flag is sacred -> other flags are evil is not that big a leap.

Just the first thing I thought of when I read your post.

Well, the flag is a graven image according to some (like the Jehovah's Witnesses)... so if anything I'd say a flag burning ammendment would be counter to #2.
