Newdow Revives Fight Against Christianity

Friday, January 07, 2005

Michael Newdow is back in the limelight again. The atheist who sued a California school district last year because he did not want his young daughter exposed to the words "under God" in the Pledge of Allegiance, has filed a suit to bar the saying of a prayer at President Bush's inauguration.

In a lawsuit in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, Newdow says the use of a prayer is unconstitutional, noting that two ministers delivered Christian invocations at Bush's first inaugural ceremony in 2001, and that plans call for a minister to do the same before Bush takes the oath of office Jan. 20.

Last year, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of tossed out the same ridiculous lawsuit, saying Newdow did not suffer "a sufficiently concrete and specific injury." Newdow is hoping for a different ruling from the D.C. circuit.

This guy needs some serious help. Because President Bush wants a minister to deliver invocations at his inaugural ceremony, Mr. Newdow believes it is somehow an example of Congress establishing a law respecting a religion.

Secularists need to get over this and quickly. Bush does not rule with a divine pen. He never has and never will, so stop persecuting him because he wants a Christian minister present at his…own…personal…ceremony.
