Bible Thumpers don't know their Bible

Harpers Index is one of the coolest things ever. A gem from this month's:

Number of Alabama state senators co-sponsoring a bill last summer to protect public displays of the Ten Commandments: 10
Number of them who could list the Commandments: 1

Of course this just follows along the same lines as those Zealots who quote Leviticus for its prohibition of homosexuality, but then ignore the bits about stoning adulterers (20:10) or not eating shrimp (11:10) or not touching menstruatingng women (15:19) or eating rare steak (17:10-14) or not wearing mixed fabric (19:19) (I'm sure I saw Pat Robertson wearing a polyesther tie with his cotton suit).
