Please help Congressman Westmoreland of Georgia

Now those of you who know me are probably shocked I am asking for your support and help for a staunch conservative member of the U.S. House of Representatives. Lynn Westmoreland is a republican congressman from the Third District of Georgia. And where is this district? Well, if you are driving from Atlanta to Florida for vacation after you have left your four-legged family member in some cold, dark hole you call a kennel, head south on I-85 and you will have the honor of driving through the lovely countryside Lynn represents.
So why do I ask for your help? Well, Lynn seems to have a few issues with the Holy Bible he most certainly uses as a weapon against those of us who do not follow his staunch conservative ideals (these include voting against a bill that would have provided funding to the FBI to investigate Civil Rights cases – named after a slain 14 year-old African American; as well as referring to Barack and Michelle Obama as “uppity”). Recently, Lynn was interviewed on what I suppose he thought would be a fun segment on Comedy Central. In this interview, Lynn was defending his support for posting the 10 Commandments in the U.S. Senate and House chambers. The problem is Lynn did not know the 10 Commandments. Can you believe it? I mean Dad Ed is a PR guy and I heard him say “for the love of the 10 Commandments, don’t do an interview on the 10 Commandments if you don’t know them!” Makes sense to me. In fact, as my beagle brain recalls, Lynn only got three correct.
So I implore all of you to help Lynn. He so wants to use our bible and the 10 Commandments to keep his seat in Congress and if we all email him and his campaign the link to my blog, we’ll give him a quick Sunday School lesson that will help him in his re-election bid. After all, the good people of Georgia’s Third District deserve this wonderful representation that is certainly helping to employ, feed and clothe them.
ONE: 'You shall have no other gods before Me.' TWO: 'You shall not make for yourself a carved image--any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.' THREE: 'You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain.' FOUR: 'Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.' FIVE: 'Honor your father and your mother.' SIX: 'You shall not murder.' SEVEN: 'You shall not commit adultery.' EIGHT: 'You shall not steal.' NINE: 'You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.' TEN: 'You shall not covet your neighbor's house; you shall not covet your neighbor's wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor's.'
