A man with no life

... and a penchant for grabbing headlines.

HE'S BAAAAAACK!! Yep, it's Michael Newdow, possibly the country's most famous atheist, who's now trying to get the "In God We Trust" removed from American currency. Well, he's got his work cut out for him. His lawsuit comes just five days after the US Supreme Court rejected a challenge to the phrase "In God We Trust" on a government building:

"In this situation, the reasonable observer must be deemed aware of the patriotic uses, both historical and present, of the phrase 'In God We Trust,'" the appeals panel ruled in upholding the inscription's display. (My emphasis.)

Indeed. Reasonable observers also realize that atheists are in no way compelled to such a belief here in the US. But ... who ever said Newdow was reasonable?

maybe we ought to go back to the time of the Puritans and those that don't want to follow the teachings of the church will be banished to another say, San Francisco, or California, hell givem enough space to shout out their innane ideas about God and Country....we were founded as a nation based on religious ideas!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What do you expect from a guy who isn't bright enough to wear a belt with that suit?
