Beliefnet has an article up
about the Ten Commandments. I found most interesting the first myth.
1. The Ten Commandments have always been displayed in public places throughout the United States.
Many of the public Ten Commandments displays can be traced all the way back to…40 years ago. That's when Cecil B. DeMille, seeking to promote his 1956 "Ten Commandments" film, teamed up with the Fraternal Order of Eagles, a men's service organization, to donate Ten Commandments monuments, with the text of the commandments, to be displayed on municipal grounds across the country.
So Hollywood distributes monuments to the Ten Commandments and Hollywood is the cause of our moral decay. Hmmm.
