After reading about the fuss over the "Ten Commandments" monument in Sandpoint I sent these remarks to newspapers in Sandpoint, Moscow and Lewiston.
> Why make a fuss over Ten Commandments monuments when nobody knows exactly what the commandments are?
> The list in Exodus 20:1-17 is not numbered, but Jews, Catholics/Lutherans and other Protestants give varying numbers to them, totaling more than ten.
> After Moses broke the first list that God gave him he had to go up the mountain again. There God gave him the same words that were on the original tablets (Exodus 34:1-27). The actual words are listed in verses 14-26.
> You may protest that they are not the same words; but God said they are the same words.
> How can this be? Just remind yourself, God's memory is probably better than yours.
