Instead of shooting at the banner at the end of my aeroplane. read what it says!

We do not need the 10 Commandments, no, we do not seem to need them. And what have we got? A desirable society? A safe society? We kill indiscriminately, both outside of the law and within the parameters of the law. We steal, ransack and trample over anything and everything without regard for any consequence. We fornicate, screw, backstab to our hearts desire. We lie, fib, fabricate and defraud to our own advantage. We acknowledge no god, no authority other than our own understanding of another's limitations. We use the law only where it suits our needs, otherwise we deem it unfair. Yes, John, yes, Devon, I am the fool with a foolish ideal. I wish to foist upon this world unfair rules; I wish the citizens of this world would just follow these 10 basic rules which cost nothing, they are free!

  1. I am the Lord thy GOD, Thou shalt not have strange gods before me
  2. Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain
  3. Remember thou keep Holy the Sabbath day
  4. Honour thy Father and Thy Mother
  5. Thou shalt not kill
  6. Thou shalt not commit Adultery
  7. Thou shalt not steal.
  8. Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour
  9. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife
  10. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's goods

(Notice Julia, old girl, there is no graven image thingy! No wonder I forgot that one, I am not Protestant) Now really kids, what is wrong with this? Do we need this? You fellows and girl say no. I look at this sorry little park of ours and I say, man, if everyone really tried to live by these laws the mornings would be so much brighter, but then again I am only the fool in the school, whoever will take notice of Tony?
