Decimating moral values

Christian Conservatives Uniting Behind McCain - Swampland - TIME:
At a meeting Tuesday in Denver, about 100 conservative Christian leaders from around the country agreed to unite behind the candidacy of John McCain, a politician they have long distrusted, marking the latest in a string of movements that bode well for McCain's general election prospects among the Republican base.

'Collectively we feel that he will support and advance those moral values that we hold much greater than Obama, who in our view will decimate moral values,' said Mat Staver, the chairman of Liberty Counsel, a legal advocacy group, who previously supported Mike Huckabee's candidacy.
Hat-tip to Richard Catto for this one. Richard comments:

Hahahahahaha!!! Obama is going to DECIMATE moral values, is he? He’s going to kill every tenth one, or one in every ten, is he?

Really? Wow! Secretly, I am hoping it’s the 6th one (do not commit adultery).

And of course the same charge could be levelled against John McCain, and could already have been levelled against George Bush, who has already decimated moral values: Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's oil.

I wonder if Mat Staver could be more specific about which one he thinks Barack Obama is intending to knock off, and what evidence that he has that John McCain will not do the same.

This is funny. I can't imagine that there are any of the 10 original commandments left for McCain to destroy, that haven't previously been ignored by an American president.

The thing that isn't funy is that Mat Staver doesn't seem to realise it's funny.
