Ten Commandments? Suggestions?

I wanna talk to you today about the 10 Commandments, and I'll keep this short, 'cause I've got a tee-time at noon. Actually there were more than Ten Commandments, but Moses was old and grumpy, and after he broke the tablets he could only remember the negative ones. "Don't do this. Don't do that." The truth is, most of them were more like advice. The Twelfth Commandment, for example, was "Whistle while you work." (People think it's from Disney, but Disney stole it from God.)

Personally, I like to think of them as the "Ten Suggestions", because God, well, he didn't use the word "Absolutely" in any of them.
Contrary to popular belief, the most dangerous animal is not the lion or tiger or even the elephant. The most dangerous animal is a shark riding on an elephant, just trampling and eating everything they see.

Actually, there were originally 15 Commandments.

what I find interesting about the commandments is they are the fundamental basis for Christianity, but no where in said commandments do you see men shall not marry men, or you cannot have premartial sex, or condoms or bad. But yet the Pope keeps conding all of these.

The commandments are considered moral absolutes direct from God that Jews and Christians are supposed to live by. Church rulings on premarital sex, condoms, birth control, etc., are things that the Pope or church councils interpret and are (theoretically) subject to change.
