Do you know there are over 600 laws written in the bible. The 10 commandments are just the beginning.<quoted text>There is so much wrong with this post? Where do I start?
1. The 10 Commandments lack so much and contain some things that are utter nonsense. Where is the admonition against rape or owning other people? Where are the admonitions against child abuse? What does "idol worship" even mean and how is it even relevant to reality? Coveting your neighbor's goods is the cornerstone of Capitalism. Many of the Commandments are against thought crimes and utterly useless.
2. The Constitution does not contain the words, "that we are all endowed with God given inalienable rights such as the pursuit of happiness." There are no mentions of any gods in the Constitution and only two mentions of religion, the First Amendment and Article 6, paragraph 3 which maintains 'there shall be no religious test for public office". The Declaration of Independance, which you misquoted, is not the law of the land, The Constitution is. The Declaration was not ratified. Here is what is actually written therein:
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."
The Creator in the desist view is nothing like your personal god. Even the Christian god of 1776 resembles nothing that exists in Christianity today.
3. Your Bible was used by the Southern Baptist Convention to perpetuate slavery. It is a veritable primer on owning people.
Either you are woefully misinformed or are intentionally prevaricating. Either way, it's pathetic.
American law follows most of the commandments, btw. Including the sabbath.
Betcha didn't know that, either.
