Newdow strikes again!

Right on the heels of the controversial "Under God" decision by the ninth "circus" court in California, self proclaimed atheist, Michael Newdow "ain't lettin no moss grow under his feet"! This pathetic little man is attempting to strip our religious heritage from our currency. "The phase In God We Trust excludes people who don't believe in God", claims Newdow.
This, man, is so very sad. He must have been ignored or beat up in school. Why would he spend all this time and money fighting the clear majority in this country? Have you ever been to court? Do you know how much it cost to file a lawsuit and appeals? Lots of money! I have an idea for the ACLU and folks like Michael Newdow, instead of worrying about stripping the cross from the LA county seal and taking God out of our pledge, they should use their funds and create organizations that promote their values. If their views are so widely held then the support should be enormous, no? Gather signatures, get your agenda on the ballot and let the people decide. Sure would be far less expensive. However, they wouldn't obtain the desired results. The only way for them to win is through litigation not legislation.
I wonder what Newdow is using to pay for these legal filings? He's not excluded when he cashes his pay check or has his hand out and accepts donations (as meager as they may be) from like minded folks. Or does he say no thanks, I'll take mine in coconuts!

Just because the majority may not be in favor of removing God from that phrase, that doesn't make them right. "Some scientists claim that hydrogen, because it is so plentiful, is the basic building block of the universe. I dispute that. I say there is more stupidity than hydrogen, and that is the basic building block of the universe" - FZ
Indeed it is.

Matthew 19:24
"Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God."

The so called 'religious' right should take heed.

All I'm saying is, what harm is "In God We Trust" causing anyone? Is he uncomfortable when he looks at his cash? To bad, no where in the consitution does it give you freedom FROM being uncomfortable. In the same vain, the harm he would be causing the country is far greater than the exclusion he feels. He's trying to erase our Judeo-Christian history and impose HIS atheist veiws on the nation. So much for the left being the party of tolerance.

I wonder if this guy places his hand on the bible when he goes into courtrooms to testify against all his meaningless little lawsuits! The phrase "In God We Trust" has been on our money for decades, and he is just realizing this now? Maybe he should get paid in rubles or rupies!
