I have always been baffled by the claim that our laws are based on the Ten Commandments. This is a claim that can only be made by someone who is either a liar or hasn’t bothered reading them. Glenn Beck is the latest to make this absolutely ridiculous claim.
How could our laws possibly be based on the Ten Commandments when 7.5 out of 10 of them would violate the Constitution if enforced? Only the laws against theft and murder can be implemented in this country (and the law against bearing false witness sometimes, as in perjury — thus 7.5) and those things are illegal in every country no matter what their religious history is.
