Thou Shalt Not

. . . take the name of the LORD thy God in vain

If you pull out in front of traffic and drive slow, especially if you could wait 5 seconds and have a clear break in traffic, especially if you are going to take the next turning off the road, you are an [deleted].

If you have a little fishy on the back of your car and drive out from the church parking lot, you are proclaiming yourself to be one of Jesus' people. You are voluntarily identifying yourself with the Lord. You ought to be on Best Behavior.

If you pull out from the church parking lot in your car with the little fishy on it, and cut off traffic and drive like an [deleted], then you are putting negative connotations on my Jesus with your asshattery. This is a violation of the third Commandment.   Don't.  Some of us don't have little fishies on our cars because we don't want to publicly make our Lord look bad. If you're going to be a jerk, peel the fish off your trunk.

Yeah? So you don't like it, so what? Why should I do what YOU say, VFD?

. . . for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.

It is not about what I like or what I say. I am not the one declaring guilt, in the final analysis - nor the one handing out judgements and rewards.
