Slacktivist beat me to this. Oh well.

As you probably already know, the Supreme Court has begun hearing arguments about whether it is legal for the Ten Commandments to be displayed on government property. And, as usual, the Christians pushing for the Ten Commandments to be displayed are pushing for the wrong set of rules. The Bible lists three sets of ten commandments. The list that is actually called "the ten commandments" isn't the list you learned in Sunday School.

Quibbling? A bit. But for the jot and tittle Christians who take the Bible literally, they should at least know what they're talking about.

Here's the real list, the one from Exodus 34:13-28:

1) Thou shalt worship no other gods.
2) Thou shalt make thee no molten gods.
3) The feast of unleavened bread thou shalt keep.
4) Six days thou shalt work, but on the seventh day thou shalt rest.
5) Thou shalt observe the feast of weeks, of the firstfruits of wheat harvest, and the feast of ingathering at the year's end.
6) Thrice in the year shall all your men children appear before the Lord God.
7) Thou shalt not offer the blood of my sacrifice with leaven.
8) Neither shall the sacrifice of the feast of the passover be left unto the morning.
9) The first of the firstfruits of thy land thou shalt bring unto the house of the Lord thy God.
10) Thou shalt not seethe a kid in his mother's milk.
