Even as an atheist, I get the lesson of the Tower of Babel story in the Christian Bible:
The story is found in Genesis 11:1-9 (KJV) as follows:So now, with eyes that do not get sharper with age, I cannot read without glasses and magnifiers the warnings and instructions on product labels rendered in at least two languages. I accept that the illegal aliens, mainly Mexicans, that I see in criminal court every week have the right to have their prosecutions explained to them in their own language; but for taxpayers to have to pay to translate and present instructions on how to VOTE or get government freebies in languages other than English is just plain LUDICROUS!
1 And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech. 2 And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there. 3 And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for mortar. 4 And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth. 5 And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the children built. 6 And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do; and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. 7 Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech. 8 So the Lord scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city. 9 Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the Lord did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the Lord scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.
Here's the audio pitch clearly stating the obvious about why this Nashville referendum should pass overwhelmingly. If you think otherwise, you are just plain wrong, dummy!
