The Ten Commandments Project is on a quest to get American kids to memorize the Ten Commandments for $10. Ten dollars? That’s it? Wouldn’t they rather be rewarded with a big scoop of Star Spangled Ice Cream?

    Tsk tsk. Shouldn’t they be memorizing the Ten Commandments simply because it’s a Good Thing to Do???

    Oh, like we really need to be teaching our children that real rewards come from parrotting what the Authorities really want to hear, rather than what they need to hear.

    Oh, yes, and that all you have to do to be thought of as “a good kid” is the say the right things – living them is not necessary.

    Even I could see through that when I was young, and I had a fairly sheltered childhood. You think modern kids don’t really see the shallowness of this idea?

    I wonder if it will be explained to these kids that “worship no God but me” means that worshipping money/icecream/USA is wrong?

    And why the ten commandments? Memorising laws isn’t going to stop them breaking them. Make them memorise stuff like john 3:16. That’d be a lot better to memorise.
