Why are the 10 Commandments so attractive to conservatives that talk-radio host Hugh Hewitt doesn't blink an eye when gubernatorial candidate Bob Beauprez says we should "go back" to the 10 Commandments to restore "some order in society."
Beauprez: "That's why God gave Moses those 10 Commandments, wasn't it, to keep some order in society. And I think that's what we've got to go back to."
Beauprez brought up the Commandments as part of his solution to the immigration tragedy along the border.
If I were Hewitt, I'd have asked how not coveting they neighbor's wife, not using the lord's name in vain, and not being an atheist would help the teenage migrants.
Worse is the free pass from real reporters that a candidate for U.S. Senate, Rep. Cory Gardner, gets for his support of "public posting the 10 Commandments."
It's one thing for Beauprez to push moral fortitude via the Commandments; it's another for Gardner to endorse state sponsorship of religious material.
Where does Gardner want such postings? Courts? Schools? DMV? He deserves to be asked.
