10 commandments ad campaign

Plan:

The idea would be to show everyone that the 10 commandments is not some widely-agreed upon document. There are countless versions of different denominations and faiths. It is not only the non-believers who should be angry about this attempt to introduce religion into politics, but all faiths who are in danger of being discriminated against. Before voting, one should know exactly which commandments will be hung.

a few weeks of ads showing the various forms of the 10 commandments.

a few weeks of text about the various kinds and the power of the supreme court and how bush will appoint several and how if he does, then that's it for separation of church and state.

36. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing in heaven above, or things which are in the earth beneath.

19. For in 6 days the Lord made heaven and earth, and the sea, and all that in them is; wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

Muslim 10 commandments (a possible candidate for posting, but in Islam, these prohibitions do not hold the weight of the commandmetns in Jewish or Christian faiths.):

Surrah 6: 151-152

Sayt "Come, I will recite what your Lord has prohibited you from?: Join not anything in worship with Him; be good and dutiful to your parents; kill not your children because of poverty -- We provide sustenance for you and for them; come not near to shameful sins, whether committed openly or secretly; and kill not anyone whom Allah has forbidden, except for a just cause. This He has commanded you that you may understand

152. "And come not near to the oprhan's property, except to improve it, until he attains the age of full strength; and give full measure and full weight with justice. We burden not any person, but that which he can bear. And whenever you give your word, say the truth even if a near relative is concerned, and fulfull the Covenant of Allah. This He commands you, that you may remember.

Pillars of Islam, probably the best ideological equivalent of the 10 commandments.
