How Would Jesus Drive?

After a long search to find something they haven’t issued rules for yet, the Vatican released Ten Commandments for drivers. The 36-page document, actually called “Guidelines for the Pastoral Care of the Road,” covers the moral aspects of driving a car. And the immoral ones. It discusses road rage, respecting pedestrians, keeping within the speed limit, avoiding rude gestures while driving, and the Fifth Commandment which reads: “Cars shall not be for you an expression of power and domination, and an occasion of sin.” Hands on the road, buddy. Not surprisingly, praying while driving is okay. It’s even encouraged. And sometimes it’s necessary. There’s no mention of driving while using cell phones, eating Big Macs, or applying mascara, or whether it’s okay to use the carpool lane when you’re by yourself because “the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit are always with me.”
