Law of Man - Law of God
While performing my research for the Ten Commandments, I leafed through various bibles in our bookshelves and explored the world wild web. I came upon a few credible looking web sites. I didn't realize that there is a difference between the Catholic and Protestant versions of the Ten Commandments (or maybe I just blocked that out...). Wikipedia provides a few other views as well. A progressive thinker may suggest they change some of the wording. Perhaps we can start with the all-inclusive Charter for Compassion.
So, what's with the reference to the Ten Commandments, you may ask. Well, throughout the entire novel, each of the commandments are broken at least once. I thought it would provide an interesting study guide exercise in case this book makes it into any school curriculum.
On a side note, as I tap away at this Mac keyboard on a breezy July Saturday, I wonder how the Seven Deadly Sins are progressing over at Quirky B's.
