Citizens Rule Book

I saw it floating around myspace so I had to reply to it. If you read it you'll see why very quickly, and in this I didn't even talk about the fact you don't have to be christian to be american....

read it here --->

That is a nice thought but once you set up the idea that the god idea gives you rights those who think they can talk to god will use that to control others. And no I'm not talking out of my ass here. It has happened in the past, most governments were divine monarchies. You should know that people didn't put up with it, but not before things get messy...

It also says some stuff about how we should follow the ten commandments. Silly people... "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion" Also there is another man who wants this, check out his work at ''.

1. Thou shalt have no other gods before Me. (intolerance)
2. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image.(censorship)
3. Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain.(censorship)
4. Remember the Sabbath to keep it Holy.(violates the first amend.)
5. Honor thy father and thy mother.(nice idea, but what if your father or mother want you to do wrong?)
6. Thou shalt not murder.(good)
7. Thou shalt not commit adultery.(pretty good)
8. Thou shalt not steal.(good)
9. Thou shalt not bear false witness.(good)
10. Thou shalt not covet.(um are you sure these guys are american?)

4 out of 10 isn't good enough for me.

Then it goes into how the evil communist want to enslave everyone. I'm was pretty sure this whole damn thing is propaganda, but I can't find any dates for it so it is just speculation.

"The Southern Poverty Law Center claims that the Citizens Rule Book is popular among "antigovernment 'Patriots'".[3] It is sold online by companies that cater to tax protesters and Christian Patriots, such as the Patriot Network, as well as by Young Earth Creationist Kent Hovind." - wiki

Hovind is a dumbass, he even got his so called degree that lets him use that Dr title from a degree factory and it isn’t even on the subject matter he’s bitching about.

BTW they really shouldn't use John Adams to argue that the ten commandments are better to follow then the government Eye-wink

"[T]he Government of the United States of America is not in any sense founded on the Christian religion..." - Treaty of Tripoli, Ratified by the Senate and signed into law by John Adams on 10 June, 1797.
