2nd Commandment

Would it be too much to ask of "devout Christians" to have even a passing familiarity with their own religion?

Would it be too much to ask of Major Time Columnists for them to, you know, maybe have a bit of the same?

Even this godless heathen knows that the golden rule isn't in the ten commandments, and to the extent that it can be related to them, the 2nd (any of them) doesn't exactly top the list of potential foundations for it.

...okay, maybe I'm the idiot. That the "golden rule" is the 2nd of the "new testament commandments" is a new one to me, and apparently not exactly a universal designation, but probably that's what he meant.
