Atheist Newdow Loses Suit on Prayer in Congress

The judge said it "was not enough to show Newdow had suffered sufficient injury." It was apparently also not enough that this is unconstitutional or anything like that.

Newdow is also arguing before the Supreme Court in the Pledge of Allegiance "under God" case. I'm sure that one's going to go well. After all, Antonin "Opus Dei" Scalia as stated:

"The reaction of people of faith to this tendency of democracy to obscure the divine authority behind government should not be resignation to it, but the resolution to combat it as effectively as possible. We have done that in this country... "

Yeah, he's going to approach this in a fair and balanced way.
Combine this court with the legislation passed yesterday basically banning abortion, a couple more judges, say John Ashcroft?, and the Taliban could soon find a new home right here.
