Congressman Lynn Westmoreland: The Ten Commandments is, is not a bad thing, uh, for people to understand and to respect.
Colbert: I’m with you.
Westmoreland: Where better place could you have something like that than in a judicial building, in a courthouse?
Colbert: That is a good question. Can you think of any better building to put the Ten Commandments in — than in a public building?
Colbert: [looks mildly surprised]
Westmoreland: I think if we were totally without ’em, we may lose a sense of our direction.
Colbert: What are the Ten Commandments?
Westmoreland: What are all of them? You want me to name ’em all?
Colbert: Yeah. Please.
Westmoreland: Um… Don’t murder. Don’t lie. Don’t steal. Um, I can’t name them all.
