New Ten Commandments monument in Oklahoma misspells 'Sabbeth' and 'Maidseruant'

http://www.patheos.com/blogs/friendlyatheist/2012/11/15/christian-legislators-put-up-ten-commandments-monument-in-oklahoma-and-misspell-sabbath/



A Ten Commandments monument is up on the grounds of the state Capitol, but it didn't pass spell check.

“Remember the Sabbeth day, to keep it holy,” reads one.

“Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidseruent,” reads the last one.

Rep. Mike Ritze, whose family paid for the monument that was put up Thursday, said the monument company has been contacted and will correct the errors to the words Sabbath and maidservant.

3. Nothing better than a graven image of the Ten Commandments.

Violate the 2nd commandment by putting up a graven image of it.

5. Doesn't matter.

No one will read it. 99.9% of Reps/Cons have broken 9 out of 10 of those Commandments. They just find loopholes in the Bible to excuse them.

10. Are they going to break all the commandments at once?

Just throw that sucker in the trash and start over? After all, Moses got two chances.
