Michael Newdow, the Madelyn Murray O’Hair pretender, has lost his first round in federal court to ban prayer and any other religiosity from the upcoming Presidential inauguration. Clearly, this is a lonely man. How else to explain Newdow’s obsessive self-promotion?
It started with his suit to remove the words “under God” from the Pledge of Allegiance. Following that defeat, he became the darling of the California moonbats, appearing wherever he could to promote his desire to scrub the stain of religious faith from American culture.
I figure a dog might do him some good. But maybe not. He may be too self-absorbed for a dog. He’s reputed to be fairly intelligent. Maybe we could buy him a chemistry set. Do they still sell chemistry sets, or have lawyers like Newdow managed to ban them, too?
On the surface, a girlfriend makes sense. But rumor has it that his last girlfriend, a true Californian, was prone to exclaiming “O-my-god” everytime she took a breath, and Newdow just couldn’t handle it. He’s sensitive when it comes to that g-word, even in lowercase.
I just have to wonder if he isn’t really a fake-atheist, an atheist wanna-be. I’d like to see his credentials.
Most any self-respecting atheist will tell you that when they hear someone pray or make some grandiose claim for God, they just shake their heads, murmur a ‘tsk-tsk’ and move on. “Poor, ignorant slob,” they mutter to themselves. “Won’t he be surprised when he gets to Heaven and finds the gates rusted shut, with a Closed Forever sign flapping in the wind?”
Not Michael Newdow. He’s on a Crusade, er, crusade (lowercase). This man really needs a hobby—like bowling. There’s a game of skill, with just a little bit of random chance thrown in for good measure. And you can enjoy it all by yourself. A perfect hobby for a lonely lawyer. And last time I checked, they don’t have Christian music nights at bowling alleys. Quick, somebody get the guy some bowling shoes before he sues again.
Oops, too late. He’s appealed. Send up some good thoughts for Michael Newdow. The poor guy needs them.
