Thou Shalt Not
The Mulatto Advocate has posted his thoughts on the Ten Commandments and the Constitution. Some will disagree, but I don't see how. With Constitutional citations, it's Ipso Facto.

Quotations to Ponder
Mahatma Gandhi on Prayer
~ Let everyone try and find that as a result of daily prayer he adds something new to his life, something with which nothing can be compared.
~ Prayer is not an old woman's idle amusement. Properly understood and applied, it is the most potent instrument of action.
~ Prayer is not asking. It is a longing of the soul. It is daily admission of one's weakness. It is better in prayer to have a heart without words than words without a heart.

~ Labor to keep alive in your breast that little spark of celestial fire, called conscience. -George Washington
~ People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within. -Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

Great Quotes from the Denny Wilson archives
~ Democracy must be something more than two wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for dinner. -James Bovard, Civil Libertarian
~ I don't make jokes. I just watch the government and report the fact -Will Rogers
~ No man's life, liberty, or property are safe while the legislature is in session. -Mark Twain

And this favorite of the day from TacJammer:
The activist base of the Democratic Party today strikes me as demonstrably more paranoid and irrational about George Bush than even the most "obsessed" of my conservative brethren ever were [about Bill Clinton]. And to Bush's credit, he's not biting his lip and whining about it. ~Jonah Goldberg

Kid's Prayer
One particular four-year-old prayed, "And forgive us our trash baskets as we forgive those who put trash in our baskets."
