Smackdown: Supreme Court Style
You have to admire Michael Newdow's persistence. That's about all I can think of to admire about this guy.
In a last, futile attempt to prevent President Bush from having a prayer recited at the inauguration, Newdow had appealed to the Supreme Court. He claimed it would force him "to accept unwanted religious beliefs."
They answered today, and yet again, Newdow has wasted both his time and my tax dollars. Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist rightly denied Newdow's claim, and didn't waste time explaining why.
If atheists really believe there is no God, then why are they so touchy about someone mentioning God? If they fear God, which they appear to, then they must believe in God to some extent. Why fear something that doesn't exist?
Unless, of course, they're not entirely certain about their unbelief.
Regardless, Newdow can now crawl back under the rock where he came from.
