Jay, To this I will add one more completely irreverent one from my favorite comedian of all time, George Carlin:” Thou shalt keep thy religion to thyself.” That has always made me laugh out loud and it’s his final line in a riff about the Ten Commandments (which he reduced to two). Truly, while there is a great deal of wisdom in most religious writings, when it comes to dogma, the poor Almighty has been invoked in all the best and bloodiest of wars for those who failed to answer the God question correctly. No question we need guidance- boy do we- and the Sermon on the Mount is just about the best I’ve read so far. However when we interfere…well, you know. I’m going to make note of your 11th. I love it. I just re-read it and it made me laugh all over again.
