I just heard Ted Poe being interviewed about him resigning from the "Freedom Caucus". What a great name Freedom Caucus. Who would ever be against
freedom? The thing is it's probably double speak and the freedom they are looking for is having the ability to screw the American people without
Regardless of their true intentions, Ted Poe said the reason he resigned is he did not like the compromises Republicans were making amongst themselves
in the majority. He thought the healthcare bill was not right wing enough. He then made the following statement, "If you brought the 10
Commandments in front of the body they would vote it down." This statement got me thinking. I was thinking, of course they would vote down the 10
Commandments. And then I thought, wait a minute, does Ted Poe actually thinks breaking the 10 Commandments should be a felony. So let's review the
1. You shall have no other gods before Me.
2. You shall make no idols.
3. You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain.
4. Keep the Sabbath day holy.
5. Honor your father and your mother.
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.
So my question is which one of these should be a felony. Obvious we all agree on murder. But what #7? Should it be a federal crime with life in
prison for committing adultery?
I don't understand what Poe was saying. Do you think he actually meant the 10 Commandments should be secular law?
