Acouple of houses in my neighborhood have Ten Commandments tablets in their front yard. Is this a new trend, or do I just have more religious neighbors than most? I have to say I’m baffled by the whole thing–it’s not like this is the kind of neighborhood where we should have to remind each other not to kill or steal, and I have yet to see a golden calf in anyone’s backyard.
The only thing that puzzled me more were the giant wood plaques I saw at an Amish furniture store in Indiana that had the Ten Commandments carved into them. They were prominently displayed above the beds in their showroom. How bad does it have to be if you resort to hanging rules like “Thou shalt not commit adultery” over your headboard? Just sayin’.
Have the Ten Commandments popped up in your neighborhood? Spotted any other unusual “lawn decor” recently?
