Holy Moses

Alright, so this certainly is one way to spend your free time:

Project Moses was born after the American Civil Liberties Union brought a lawsuit protesting the display of the Ten Commandments at a courthouse in Kansas.

Its mission is to put up 5,000 monuments in the next five years, the proceeds from which would fund a 24-foot-tall statue of Moses holding the Ten Commandments in a tourist area in Washington, D.C., said Joe Worthing, national executive director of the project.

“We’re not trying to make a political statement,” Worthing said.

Which can only mean one thing: prepare for a political statement (not that a 24 foot statue of Moses in Washington, DC isn't in any way political) --

“But the hard fact of the matter is our entire society and civil code was based on this foundational precept.”
