Newdow's New Crusade

Surely in the hunt for atheist of the year, Michael Newdow is now after our money.

"In God We Trust" is like nails on a chalkboard to this annoying twerp. I found this on Stop the ACLU:
Michael Newdow says he'll ask a federal court to order removal of the national motto "In God We Trust" from U-S coins and currency. He says it violates the religious rights of atheists who belong to his "First Amendment Church of True Science."
Here's a knat with some press who thinks that removing "In God We Trust" is more important to his well being (or perhaps his paycheck?) than containing those who want to saw off his ugly head with a rusty machete.

Who does he think he's kidding? Not I said the fly...

Passed you in the night! Just read about this Newdow clown a Stop the Aclu. Anyone know a good suicide bomber out of work? What about that guy in Jordan's wife! I could recommend a target a la O'Reilly ;-)

You know, I'm agnostic. That's just me, I'm skeptical of everything until I see it. But I commented to a post a while back at The Gray Tie about the principal of a public high school apologizing to parents for allowing a Christian-themed assembly that featured two pro football players, saying he was misled about what the presentation would cover. Some parents complained because of the theme. I think my reply there fits here- This was written on the 27th of October to give you an idea of the timeline.

I’m an agnostic. I don’t know if there is a God or not. I certainly hope so but until I see him/her whatever I’ll have my doubts, particularly the way the world seems to be going to hell in a Louis Vuitton handbag. But I thoroughly believe it was a much better world when there was prayer in school and the Pledge of Allegiance was recited every morning. The Bible has a lot of good lessons to teach.

In Houston since 1956 there has been a monument in front of the civil courthouse which prominently features a Bible. The ACLU represented a woman who requested it be removed.

Just today I saw a report that states- “A federal appeals court Tuesday temporarily blocked a judge’s order to remove a Bible from a monument outside a Harris County courthouse.

U.S. District Judge Sim Lake had given the county until midnight Tuesday to remove the Bible after a woman sued claiming it was offensive to non-Christians. But a three-judge panel of the New Orleans-based 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Tuesday the Bible can stay for now.”

This woman,Staley, has argued that in addition to being offensive, the Bible display improperly advanced Christianity and sent “a message to her and to non-Christians that they are not full members of the Houston political community.”

This battle isn’t over yet and it will be interesting to see the final outcome, but I think it’s fucking ridiculous. So you don’t like the Bible there? Don’t look at it. Idiots.

Now on Nov. 14, I say, you don't like In God We Trust on currency? Too damn bad.

So yeah, rusty machete sounds good. *g*
