*cracks the whip* Back to church with ye!
Do you see now, people? See how badly we need the 10 Commandments up in schools, courthouses, and all other public buildings? I warned you. Didn't I warn you?! Look what happened to that poor slob, he's almost forgotten ALL of them! The poor guy probably doesn't even own a Bible or know where to find the 10 Commandments if he did...Sad, really.
Luckily that interview came out after our friends at Radar Online compiled their list of the 10 dumbest members of congress.
Can we really expect those who believe so strongly in the 10 Commandments to actually be able to name...all 10? In this sense Westmoreland represents his constituency.
Only 40% of Americans can name more than 4 of the Commandments.
Only half can name any of the four authors of the Gospels (here's a clue: the Gospels are the books where you read about Jesus' life; the authors are the names of the books.)
75% believe the Bible teaches "God helps those who help themselves."
12% believe Joan of Arc was Noah's wife.
But what DOES the Bible say about the Commandments? "These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts." (Deut 6:6). Notice, God says "hearts" first; before talking about them with others they are to be on your heart. Before tying them as symbols to your hands they are to be on your heart. Before putting them up in your house or on your gate they are to be in your heart. Which means, if you believe they're so important, the very least you should be able to do is recite them all.
