    Maybe the LA Board of Education should focus on counting first.

    So.

    1. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his cattle, nor anything that is thy neighbor’s.

    if we assume that ‘covet’ means to want-to-bone. It’s okay to want bone your wife (even encouraged!), your servants and your cattle… but not some other guy’s wif, servants or cattle.

      I’d rather not assume than and assume they just mean “don’t be jealous” since it’s a commandment that’s literally impossible to follow. Even Elon Musk sees things he wants to have but other people won’t let him have.

        I mean, yes… but you know… my way is more interesting,

        Thought-crime and pre-crime. Two fundamentally important aspects of Christianity as they ensure guilt that they are conveniently the monopoly on forgiveness/absolution of.

    The commandment listed are the Ten Commandments but different versions group the text differently. The bill however has 11 groups, not 10. (12 if you count “I am the Lord thy God” but some versions don’t count it)

    TLDR version: not actually 11 commandments, just an extra line break in the shall-not-covet commandment.

      Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s house.

      Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his cattle, nor anything that is thy neighbor’s.

      Those look like two different commandments to me.

      There’s another line break at the top…

      “I am the Lord, thy God, thou shalt have no other Gods before me.”

      But that’s also matter of debate… but then so is the whole list… and the order…

      The one everyone forgets:

      “You shall set up these stones, which I command you today, on Aargaareezem. (Tsedaka)”

      But hey, it’s not like they were carved in stone by God or something… Oh, wait…
