Religious numpty humiliated

Great video via Boing Boing of Stephen Colbert interviewing Congressman Lynn Westmoreland (isn't that a girl's name? Is he perhaps friends with a boy named Sue?). Westmoreland is apparently keen on having the Ten Commandments displayed in the House of Representatives and Senate, despite the fact the US constitution strictly enforces a division between church and state and the fact that displaying this in a public building which belongs to all citizens may not be terribly representative (no pun intended) for all of them who are not necessarily Christian. Wonderfully in this video he is asked to name all ten; after being surprised at this request he attempts to name the commandments and only gets to about three - and those are paraphrased into a rather simple language... Ah, the ignorant hypocritical, holier-than-thou twat revealed to be stupider-than-thou...

I just loove these counterfeit christians, that one is a good example of the type, YOU ALL (the great unwashed) will do as I say and dont bother to question what I do. These Commandments are for the peons not the rulers.

Ah well. That destroys the Catholic argument that the Ten Commandments are graven on all our hearts, then. Or perhaps it doesn't apply to Protestants...

Yup, Gaias has it on the nail, classic example of "do as I say not what I do".

Yvonne, being originally raised as a West Coast Scottish proddy myself I know nothing will be graven to them even the ten commandments, since anything graven smacks of popery. Personally I prefer pot-pouri. And anyway I never thought much of these ten no-nos, they missed out the important commandements, like some from the Gospel of Fonzie, such as Thou Shalt be Cool and Thou Shalt Sit on It.
