How about a referendum on the 10 Commandments ?

OK, the Catholic bishops are still pushing back on the ObamaCare mandate that church-affiliated organizations must “violate their consciences” and ante up for contraceptives.

Many pundits are counter-punching the bishops … arguing that they are woefully out-of-touch … that an overwhelming majority of Catholics support contraception.  So, the bishops should get off their soap boxes and ditch the rule.

Interesting angle: subject religious doctrine re: right and wrong  to a popular vote.  If it doesn’t get a majority, chuck it.

Hmmm.

I think the idea has merit.

In fact, I say: why not hold a referendum on the 10 commandments?

Maybe #10 and #7 would fail to get enough votes and it would become legit for me to jack my neighbors big screen TV.

The idea has potential, right?

Think about it.

Which of the 10 would you like to see voted out?

            10 Commandments

  1. You shall not have other gods.
  2. You shall not take the name of the Lord God in vain
  3. Remember to keep holy the Lord’s Day
  4. Honor your father and your mother
  5. You shall not kill
  6. You shall not commit adultery
  7. You shall not steal
  8. You shall not bear false witness
  9. You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife
  10. You shall not covet your neighbor’s goods

    I’d like to see #3 given another chance. I wish more communities would re-instate “blue laws”. I’m not saying it should be universal- but it would be nice to have some towns and places where one day a week was a little less relaxed, people didn’t have to work. More choice I guess.

    I grew up in a town where Sunday meant everything other than the gas station, pharmacy and bakery were closed. I think the positives outweighed the negatives; I’d like to have that option back.

  2. Judge says 4 of the 10 Commandments should be tossed … hmmm, which 4 go? « The Homa Files Says:
