Doesn?t the 10 commandments have something to say about not lying? Ten Commandments Project was founded by a retired flower shop owner who would pay $10 to children under 16 to memorize the 10 Commandments.. heard on radio that he?d gotten more than 15,000 responses, ran out of money, so the project?s on hold..
