    AMERICAN KIDS OFFERED TEN DOLLARS TO MEMORIZE TEN COMMANDMENTS
    (Nashville, Tennessee-AP) -- A Tennessee man is offering
    ten dollars to any American child, 16 or younger, who'll memorize
    the Ten Commandments.
    Since he launched the Ten Commandments Project five years
    ago, George Kelley says he's rewarded about seven-thousand
    youngsters with the help of people who contribute to his
    ministry.
    Kelley says kids are excited about the money, but the real
    reward is learning right from wrong.
    To qualify for the ten dollars, children must recite the
    commandments to an authorized unrelated adult. The adult witness
    then must sign an affidavit form they can download from the
    ministry's Web site pledging that they heard the child's
    recitation.

    Interesting. But I can't help of thinking about the Bible verse memorization in "Tom Sawyer."

    Hey, I did the same thing when I taught 4th grade Sunday School. If any of the kids could stand up in front of everyone and say the Ten Commandments, I'd give them a buck.

    Call it creative tithing.
