Militant atheists are on the march yet again, obsessed with stamping out anything that does not support their nihilistic ideology:
A new lawsuit filed on behalf of several Atheist plaintiffs argues the phrase “In God We Trust” on U.S. money is unconstitutional, and calls for the government to get rid of it.
Sacramento attorney Michael Newdow filed the lawsuit Monday in Akron, Ohio. He’d unsuccessfully sued the government at least twice challenging the use of the phrase “under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance.
The suit, like everything else to come out of Newdow’s bitter jihad against God, is hogwash:
Newdow claims “In God We Trust” violates the separation of church and state. One plaintiff says his Atheism is “substantially burdened because he is forced to bear on his person a religious statement that causes him to sense his government legitimizing, promoting and reinforcing negative and injurious attitudes not only against Atheists in general, but against him personally.”
Oh please Mr. Newdow, spare us your snot-nosed tantrums. The First Amendment is very clear VERY clear. Let us take a look shall we?
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;
There it is. There are a few words radical Atheists like Newdow overlook. The first in Congress. Everytime you hear of a student being told they must not mention God, or Jesus, in their valedictorian speech, ask yourself this. Is that student Congress? Is that student making a law? No, of course not, so there can be no violation of the Fisr Amendment can there?
The second word the Atheists ignore is establishment. What is an establishment? It is not a verb it is a noun, a thing.In this case an establishment of religion would be a church. The Founders did not want a state church, so they forbade Congress from making a law making one religion the national religion.
Now the third part they ignore is, the free exercise thereof. In short, Atheists have overlooked that when a student, or a football team, or fans are forbidden from praying at, before, during, or after a game, they are the ones having their natural rights erased. They have every constitutional right to pray, or to mention God, Jesus, Santa Claus, Christmas, and so on in their speeches at school. Yes, we understand such activities cause butt hurt in the Michael Newdow’s of America, but guess what? There is no right not to be offended.
For those normal people out there wondering why someone who professes not to believe in God gets so upset when they hear that word, or see a Nativity scene, or a Christmas tree, or hears of a school kid taking a Bible to school, allow me to explain.
Radical Atheists, and no, not all Atheists are radical, in fact most are not offended by the faith of others, are angry for one reason more than any other. In America, Atheists are free NOT to go to church, NOT to believe in God, they are free to rant and rave about their Atheism. And guess what folks? The source for that freedom, for that natural right is, yes God! Imagine how that must grate Michael Newdow, to know that this nation protects his liberty to NOT believe in the very thing that gave him that freedom!
