Atheists/Agnostics Sue to Remove 'so help me God' from Inauguration

Barack Obama himself wants to end his inaugural oath with the words 'so help me God', though that is not technically how it appears in the Constitution, as many Presidents before him have done.

But Michael Newdow, a chief proponent in the battle to remove 'under God' from the Pledge of Allegiance, is the lead plaintiff in the suit before Chief Justice Roberts in the federal court. The suit also aims to expel Reverend Rick Warren from the ceremony.

With a bishop astonished by references to God, I suppose this was only the logical next step, and Newdow attempted the same feat with George W. Bush. Still, these people seem unable to see their own ridiculousness, even when Obama is on the other side of the issue.

Either they are righteous warriors who have pledged their services to the wrong leader, or the Messiah is infallible and they are crazy. With such hypocrisy, no wonder they live unexamined lives.


  1. This is a great posting, Captain: pure, unadulterated logic. I agree wholly without even being very religious.
    I have a request: I want your take on a recent article on Breitbart by Andrew Klavan. It's entitled "Why we fight" and it is amazing in its clarity. You seem to cover an enormous swath of our cultural landscape (do you ever sleep? are you just one person?) so you must have come across this piece. A conservative mission statement and call to arms all in one. Curious what you think.
    Love your work; thanx!

  2. It is a pretty spectacular article. Both coulter and rush, and now you mr. kopane, led me there. Its almost too good to comment on, being a complete package on its own. Thank you for your kind words and curiosity.
