Republicans Intro "Ten Commandments Weekend" Resolution

April 22, 2011 - by Donny Shaw

Just noticed this one:

H.Res.211 – Expressing support for designation of the first weekend of May as Ten Commandments Weekend to recognize the significant contributions the Ten Commandments have made in shaping the principles, institutions, and national character of the United States.

Full text here.

Because, you know, Americans need to be reminded once a year to stop coveting their neighbors’ “field, or male or female slave, or ox, or donkey.”

Irregular Times has more on the origins of this resolution.
