Most of the socalled Ten Commandments placed into the mouth of YHWH the clan god of the ancient post Exilic Israelites were borrowed during the time
of Ezra's reforms having been taken from the so-called 47 negative confessions plastered over graves of the rich in Egypt ("I have never stolen..I
have never committed Adultery...I have never borne false witness, I have never stolen...) and are also part of the (1756 BC) Hammurabi Law Codes of
Babylon (where Shamash the SunGod and Marduk give the Tablets of the Law to Hammurabi, on top of, significantly, a high mountain----500 years before
the Israelites came up with the idea of "Mosheh")
Sound familiar? Read Pritchard's ANET (Ancient Near Eastern Texts) if you have any doubts about this from archaeology..
Even if these silly tribal laws were stolen, or more politely, adapted, from pagan goyim foreign gentile nations such as Egypt, Assyria, Babylon or
Persia (most of which are common to most ancient cultures that were older and far more sophisticated than the tiny kingdoms of "Israel" and
"Judah" ever were, and all of whom had occupied and conquored Israel at one time or another), some of the so called TEN COMMANDMENTS are not exactly
"I AM YHWH WHO LED YOU OUT OF EGYPT: YOU SHALL NOT HAVE ANY GODS BEFORE MY FACES"
or "YOU WILL NOT TAKE YHWH YOUR CLAN-GOD'S NAME IN VAIN"
or "HOLD FAST TO THE SABBATH DAY, AND KEEP IT HOLY.."
First of all, YHWH aint my clan god, and secondly, he never took me out of bondage in Egypt, neither did he for 99.99999% of the population of the US
I cannot see how any of this tribal nonsense (which may have worked 2500 years ago to mixed Cannanite nomadic sheep herders who like to make Golden
Calves out of spare earings, or stick Bronze Jebusite Snake Idols on Poles and stuff) applies to the 21st century Democracies who are supposed to keep
a separation between Church and State...
Putting up such superstitious tribal Levetical mumbo jumbo on a US Government Building is the REAL Abomination here (who is supposed to show NO
partiality to any clan god, least of all the vicious clan god of Israel who wants to exterminate the Amalekites and wants all the Girgi#es dead)...
