In a perfect world, we could take a horsewhip to Michael Newdow.
Michael Newdow, a Sacramento physician and atheist who wants to remove any and all mention of God from society.
Newdow is the horse’s ass who filed a federal suit against having students recite the Pledge of Allegiance in school.
His case went before the Federal Appeals Court for the 9th District, a collection of left-wing California-based loonies who routinely make a mockery of the law. The court holds the current record for having decisions overturned
They upheld Newdow’s lawsuit and ruled the Pledge unconstitutional because it contains the words “under God,” thereby violating the laws of separation of church and state.
Legal scholars and politicians alike gasped at the ludicrous verdict, predicting it would take a higher court about 14 seconds, at most, to tell the 9th District to stick their decision where the sun never shines.
Newdow never got a chance to celebrate his so-called victory. The day after it issued the stupid ruling, the same court stayed the decision, pending appeal. Even the most ardent civil libertarians admit the short-lived decision doesn’t stand a chance in hell of ever becoming law.
This, of course, pissed Newdow off big time. He plans not only to keep fighting to rid schools of the horrid pledge, but wants any and all mention of God stripped forever from society.
“Our money says ‘In God We Trust’ on it,” Newdow says. “That’s also unconstitutional.”
If anything should be unconstitutional, it should be Newdow and his blithering idiocy. The man should be horsewhipped, at the very least, and – even better – castrated so that he can’t bring any more children into his Godless view of the world.
Newdow already has a daughter that he exploited for his so-called legal crusade, saying the teacher-led pledge forced God on her young mind (we can only hope something is bringing God into her world since she isn’t getting any religious reality at home).
If I could find a way to file child abuse charges against Newdow, I’d gladly pay a lawyer to do so. In a perfect world, such things would be possible.
But this ain’t a perfect world. It’s an imperfect system called Democracy where even lunatics like Michael Newdow can spout his atheist rants under the full protection of the very constitution that he wants to gut.
Newdow doesn’t believe in God. Unfortunately, that’s his right. I don’t like it, but in a free society, I have to live with it.
I also don’t like lunatic judges who let fanatics like Newdow twist the law to serve their disruptive agendas. Fortunately, we can count of cooler heads to, once again, toss another stupid legal decision into the scrap bin of irrelevance.
And I can live with the knowledge that both Newdow and the 9th District Federal Court is in California, where lunacy is both legal and an accepted lifestyle.
As long as Newdow stays in California, everything is cool.
If he comes East, I’ve got a horse whip handy.
