Oh God..

Brownback/Lieberman propose new bill recognizing "Ten Commandments Weekend";
http://frwebgate.access.gpo.gov/cgi-...r483is.txt.pdf

Quote:
Whereas the first weekends of May in 2006 and 2007 were celebrated by many Americans as ‘‘Ten Commandments Weekend’’ in recognition of the importance of the Ten Commandments in their faith and the history and culture of the United States: 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.
Yeah, proposing nonsense like this and performing congressional investigations into baseball, that's what we really want our government to be busy with...

Due to lack of interest, tomorrow has been canceled

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!!!!!


It's sad that anyone who calls themselves a Christian would reserve only a single weekend to put a focus on the ten commandments. What a dumb idea.

I don't know what is up or down anymore. You can't say Christmas, but we want a 10 commandments weekend.

So when is Agnostics and Atheists day? Wouldn't that be fun?

Agreed, real Christians don't need a special holiday to observe the ten commandments and everyone else doesn't want one.

It's as stupid as Jesus Day;

I also find it funny that you encourage people to "look it up" when clearly you just "make it up"

from the US Treasury website

Quote:
Fact Sheets: Currency & Coins



History of 'In God We Trust'

The motto IN GOD WE TRUST was placed on United States coins largely because of the increased religious sentiment existing during the Civil War. Secretary of the Treasury Salmon P. Chase received many appeals from devout persons throughout the country, urging that the United States recognize the Deity on United States coins.
the entire article in case anybody wants to "look it up"

maybe he was talking about paper money?

Quote:
A law passed by the 84th Congress (P.L. 84-140) and approved by the President on July 30, 1956, the President approved a Joint Resolution of the 84th Congress, declaring IN GOD WE TRUST the national motto of the United States. IN GOD WE TRUST was first used on paper money in 1957, when it appeared on the one-dollar silver certificate. The first paper currency bearing the motto entered circulation on October 1, 1957. T
