Before you answer, let me remind you of exactly what they are, since you might not have thought about them as readily as when they were drummed into your noggin as a petulant child.

Here goes:


1. You shall have no other gods before Me.

2. "You shall not make for yourself a carved image," blah blah, "you shall not bow down to them nor serve them," blah blah.

3. You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain.

4. Remember the Sabbath day . . . etc., etc.

5. Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the Lord your God is giving you.

6. You shall not murder.

7. You shall not commit adultery.

8. You shall not steal.

9. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.

10. You shall not covet your neighbor's house; you shall not covet your neighbor's wife; nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor's.


OK, I have to admit that while I'm basically a good Christian, I'm absolutely terrible about commandments 1, 3, 4, and 10.

(I don't covet an ox, mind you--just the house.)

So I can answer accurately, just what sort of male servant of my neighbor are we discussing here?

Well if there are the 10 Commandments, why do the Jews have the 1 day of Atonement?  Does't one annul out the other?

Also I broke #11 "thou shalt not burn wool because it smells horrid"

When did 10 change from "ass" to "donkey"? It's political correctness gone mad.

Does murdering someone's self-esteem count?

Definitely #3, but aren't 1 and 2 basically the same thing?  It's just easier to remember the Golden Rule---be nice to each other!

All I know is that God told Moses:

"Take two tablets and call me in the morning."

Pa-dump!

Sister Mary Michael (no, honestly, that was her name) patiently explained to us in fifth grade that all sex outside of marriage was included in the adultery one.  If she was right, that's my number one.

I definitely covet my neighbor's ox.  I mean, have you ever had a good oxtail stew?  Totally worth an eternity in hell for breaking commandment #10.

Some people have such great male servants, it's hard to not covet them.

I think sex before marriage is exempted. How can it be a sin when there's no one you're sinning against? Also as an atheist, I got no strange gods. In which case, I'm guilty of NOTHING whatsoever. See yawl at the poily gayts!

Boy that's awesome logic. You must be one of the geniuses at the George Soros-sponsored "occupy wall street" movement. It's hard to believe there are people as stupid as you.
