#1

You shall have no other gods before Me.  The first commandment.  Don't worship the false gods of fame or fortune.  Many Americans try to become famous.  Sometimes they even try doing things that are evil, just for the attention.

A girl with a purple hairstyle is saying "Look at me."  She worships the god of fame.  She wants to be noticed, to be famous, even if it is just for purple hair.  She has given up the worship of the Lord God and instead longs for the transitory delights of fame.

A man works hard to earn money.  He works day and night.  He works at work, and during his commute.  He works holidays and weekends.  He has given up worshiping the Lord God and instead longs for the false security of fortune.  There is nothing wrong with wanting to be liked by other people.  There is nothing wrong with taking care of your family and obligations.  Neither of these should be the focus of our lives; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
