Someone please neuter Newdow...
Well after another hiatus I am back again. Actually I was visiting South Georgia, interviewing for a job.
Will someone please take a 2x4 and knock this Newdow guy across the head. He just doesn't seem to get it.
The lawsuit also states: "It is an offense of the highest magnitude that the leader of our nation, while swearing to uphold the Constitution, publicly violates that very document upon taking his oath of office." Mr. Newdow also said yesterday he sought "only the respect and equal protection that the Constitution requires from our government."Come on Newdow. Nowhere in the 1st amendment (which is what he is refering too) does it say you cannot pray in public at the inauguration. I still have not figured out where he gets the Seperation of Church and State in the 1st amendment.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.Will someone please tell me where it says anything about the Seperation of Church and state in the 1st amendment.
The first line means that Congress cannot pass a law preventing the establishment of any religion, or a law preventing the exercise of religion. This mis-interpretation drives me crazy.
If Newdow doesn't want to live in a Christian Nation, Then MOVE!!!! We are a nation founded on Christian principles. If you don't want to say "under God" during the pledge, the MOVE!!! If you don't like "In God We Trust" on our money, then MOVE!!! If you don't like the fact that a preacher says a prayer before the Presidential Inauguration, then MOVE!!! Don't try to take away our Christian rights, which is exactly what this guy is trying to do.
"I have never sued to have anyone keep his or her hand off of a Bible," Mr. Newdow said in response to yesterday's story published in The Washington Times regarding his lawsuit. "As my prayer for relief and judgment specifies, I sought only the prohibition of using clergymen to further religion."
What makes this Newdow guy seem even more whacko, is the fact that he used the word prayer in one of his statements, as if it were his own. "My prayer for relief and judgment specifies," Does this guy even know what he said. The word prayer according to Webster means; A reverent petition made to God, a god, or another object of worship. Since this guy is athiest, how can he make a petition to anything higher than himself. If you tell me that is not what he meant, then tell him to use words in sentences to reflect his own belief, not one of religion.
