GUEST,Wolfgang BS: Ten Commandments on Public Property? (438* d) RE: BS: Ten Commandments on Public Property? 06 Apr 05

Y'know what? I don't care. They can post whatever they want. Just because it's in public doesn't mean anyone has to read it.

Let's consider those 10 Commandments just for a second. Don't most world religions abide by most of those same tenets? Don't most human beings of decent character, whether they're religious or not, abide by most of those same tenets? Think about it. Even if you don't agree with "thou shalt have no other gods before me," how in the world can you argue with no killing, no stealing, no messing around with your neighbor's spouse? Those are things that cause trouble for people, regardless of religion, or lack of it.

Anyhow, like I said, I don't care. I'm secure enough in my own beliefs not to feel threatened by whatever displays people want to make in public, whether they be Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, Muslim, Hindu, Mormon, whatever. I have more important things to concern myself with, and I think the state probably does too.

I have never, ever in my life, been offended by anyone's display of faith, although I have found some displays a little silly. But being offended by someone else's religion is just beyond my understanding, not to mention a total waste of my time.

It's not the stating your opinion part that I have a problem with Kim C, it's you telling us what our opinions are that I particularly dislike. And yes, I would appreciate it if you would refrain from doing that in the future. (Carol)
