11th Commandment SENT!! - Via Text Message
<snip>

THE first 10 commandments were written by the finger of God and handed to Moses on Mt Sinai, the 11th has been sent to the Methodist Church in Britain by text message from a pub.

The church announced the new commandment - "Thou shalt not worship false pop idols" - today after holding a contest in the country's pubs aimed at sparking an ethical debate among young people.

The church, together with Christian website shipoffools.com, left details of the competition on beer mats in pubs around the nation, inviting drinkers to text suggestions for an 11th commandment.

"The idea was to get people, especially those in their 20s and 30s, thinking about the commandments and to prompt a debate about ethics," said Simon Jenkins, editor of shipoffools.com, who sifted through the 2000 entries.
