“God” Has Spoken

The Vatican has released a new set of Ten Commandments. This time, it’s a reaction to the dismally rising incidents of road-related accidents and deaths. The Drivers’ Ten Commandments are as follows:

1. You shall not kill.

2. The road shall be for you a means of communion between people and not of mortal harm.

3. Courtesy, uprightness and prudence will help you deal with unforeseen events.

4. Be charitable and help your neighbor in need, especially victims of accidents.

5. Cars shall not be for you an expression of power and domination, and an occasion of sin.

6. Charitably convince the young and not so young not to drive when they are not in a fitting condition to do so.

7. Support the families of accident victims.

8. Bring guilty motorists and their victims together, at the appropriate time, so that they can undergo the liberating experience of forgiveness.

9. On the road, protect the more vulnerable party.

10. Feel responsible toward others.

Well. Well. Well. This IS strange. If this is the case, I wonder how many Filipino drivers have broken these commandments and are they candidates for excommunication? Driving recklessly is the new mortal sin?

I noticed that the Vatican did not tackle any issues regarding pollution, which inadvertently kills a lot of people. “Thou shalt commute to save thy money and lessen fuel emissions” would make even the Biblical Moses proud.

And Moses walked, mind you, to his destination.

  1. My God. The nerve! Do the boys of the Vatican commute? I know of only one of them who does and I want him to be Pope someday. Anyway, I find it weird that they have the nerve to post such commandments when I don’t think they even drive themselves to their destinations. It’s like them giving us a manual on how to resist temptation. They live in a controlled environment. It’s not fair at all for them to make such rules! What about commuters!??? Arghhhhhhhhhhhh.

  2. The forgot one important rule: “Know the traffic rules, signs and regulations.”
    Basic… very BASIC.
