colbert and the 10 commandments

Watch the video.  I am personally not a big fan of putting the 10 Commandments all over public buildings [I wouldn't be in favor of taking it off of historic buildings (eg, the Supreme Court), but I don't know if it is a tradition we need to continue].  I don't think they are really offensive to most religious people since almost every religion has some derivation of the 10 Commandments.  What I am really against is politicized religion of any sect.  The problem with many churches is that they would probably support the decisions of Lynn Westmoreland.  Everyone wants to vote the 10 Commandments in, but no one knows what they are or practices them.  ...that is the problem.  Watch till Colbert asks him to repeat the 10 Commandments.  We need an approach with transcends the ballot box.  If you truly believe that democrats or republicans are capable of fixing anything, then you are simply being naive.
