First the Ten Commandments, now this....


  I'm curious how you believe the Ten Commandments helped with the
creation of the U.S. Constitution. The Constitution certainly relies on
the notion that rights are inherent or "god-given," but the Ten
Commandments weren't about giving rights.

  If anything, those tablets associated with Moses seem to be about
taking rights away -- revoking the free will that the Biblical God
allegedly granted to human beings. After all, are you really feel free
to exercise your right to free will if an entity capable of sending you
to eternal torture or eternal bliss lays out in no uncertain terms what
he (it?) thinks you *ought* to be doing? Isn't there an implied threat

  BTW, I just noticed your cover story on being an Oakland government
school teacher in last month's California Liberty (the state LP
newsletter). Great job!

Yours in liberty,

Hey Chris,

What the heck are you talking about? I never even
mentioned this dude's name.

It's you and Rob that are sending and responding to
messages regarding this guy's agenda, which does give
him credit.

Actually, in my opinion, comparing this guy's agenda
to the Ten Commandments is actually giving him a lot
of credit. I don't even see the similarity between the
two, but you stated that you do. I never even
mentioned his name.

The Ten commandments, in my opinion, as far as I can
see, is a document that wasn't written by any human
being, but was used by human beings to help them
create this great man-made document called the
Constitution and the Bill of Rights, intended to
promote freedom and liberty, which is probably why it
is still displayed in governmnet offices. I don't see
any hateful references to homosexuality in the Ten
Commandments, and I certainly don't see any similarity
to comparing it to an individual trying to erect a
staue with his own personal opinion about another
human being inscribed on it. What else can I say on
this except that I think the Ten Commandments being
displayed in government offices is to remind us of
it's value to achieving liberty and freedom, not to
promote a homophobic agenda. This is my opinion, and I
hope we'll all be living happily ever after in New

BTW, don't give Fred Phelps any more credit than he
deserves. His
"congregation" is a group of a little over a dozen
folks, mostly related to
him, and it's only the media attention he gets that
keeps him going.
