    then it is all clear to me now as this must be the commandments they live by..........

    I am not the Lord thy God. Thou shalt have strange gods before me.
    (OK explains lefts love for Ted Kennedy)

    Thou shall take the name of the Lord thy God in vain. (Ok explains lefts distain for religion)

    Remember thou shalt not keep the Sabbath Day. (Explains the windsurfing)

    Thou shalt not Honor thy Father and thy Mother. (Justifies that whole anti corporal punishment thing)

    Thou shalt kill. (pro choice stance is clear now)

    Thou shalt commit adultery. (Explains Marilynn Monroe, Donna Rice and Monica

    Thou shalt steal. (Explains Clinton trying to leave the white house with the china)

    Thou shalt bear false witness against thy neighbor. (Explains Barbara Boxer)

    Thou shalt covet thy neighbour's wife. (Explains Bill Clinton)

    Thou shalt covet thy neighbour's goods. (Explains John Kerry and the ketchup queen)

    Then what am I? I don't believe in all the religious hype, but nor do I live by any of *those* "commandments"..

    I don't think either you or I fit in the description of "Religious Right".

    They do...But I think it's more an inner sense of right and wrong vs. living by the bible... Which is precisely why I can't figure out why I'm "going to hell". :D

    excellent point...which seems to be lost on the complaining left

    no worries about hell all the "fun" people will be in there, plus every religion can't be right so by deffinition everyone is going to hell except possibly one group....if there is a god...so it wll be crowded...if it exists as well
