Zealots for any cause are best avoided.

Its the Pledge guy isn't it?

For 14 years, Michael Newdow

..yep.
 
2010-12-23 02:47:35 PM  
Dude, seriously, stop. Stop, and STFU. You're not helping anyone.
 
2010-12-23 03:04:54 PM  
God bless him.

Is this the same Rev. Dr. Michael Newdow, Esq. of the First Amendmist Church of True Science, who tried to get out of paying child support by claiming he was a rape victim: "I specifically said 'no' multiple times before and during [sex]. Was I forced into being a father? Yeah."

Wow so he not only fails at the law, he fails at life as well.

BillCo: Zealots for any cause are best avoided.

I'd say he's far more of an attention whore than a zealot. LOOKIT LOOKIT MY NAME IS IN NEWSPAPER!

Maybe we should get him together with the Westboro folks.
 
2010-12-23 04:17:54 PM  
The interesting thing is that if he were Christian, he'd have won at LEAST one.
 
2010-12-23 04:19:38 PM  
Huh, I guessed it was going to be Rob Sherman.

Hey we all know the church has good lawyers, just ask any altar boy...

farking douchebag. If they want to celebrate their imaginary friend, what business is that of yours?

When it gets to crunch time he refuses to put his hand on the Bible and swear to tell the truth.
 
2010-12-23 04:21:58 PM  
Not that this guy isn't an asshole, but:

He has sued to have "In God We Trust" removed from U.S. currency, to prohibit prayer at presidential inaugurations and most famously -- or infamously -- to strike the phrase "under God" from the Pledge of Allegiance.

If we were really true to the principles this country was founded on, all of these things would happen tomorrow.
 
2010-12-23 04:22:32 PM  
I believe that I am God but I dont believe in myself.

"In God We Trust" We think not.
 
2010-12-23 04:22:57 PM  
Dude, let it go, 'cause like, it's gone.
 
2010-12-23 04:23:11 PM  
I had thought this bastard's 15 minutes were up long ago.

/I should sue him, he's harshing my buzz.........

It must suck to always feel victimized.
 
2010-12-23 04:24:02 PM  
Wow, no legal victories in 14 years of constant litigation? Did he get his GED in law from the same place SkinnyHead got his?

/you get a free tire rotation with purchase of a degree!
 
2010-12-23 04:24:26 PM  
In his defense, there really are no good reasons why the fundamentalist incursions into the public realm of the McCarthy era should still stand today.

/or at least I haven't heard any
//GED in law, etc..
 
2010-12-23 04:25:21 PM  
Last I checked, Athiest meant the person didn't believe in any higher power. When did it turn into "a person who is a ravenous hater of all things religious(specifically christian) with a devotion that puts religious zealots to shame"?

Happy Yule, Hail the AllFather Wotan.
 
2010-12-23 04:25:38 PM  
He's probably right about those things but it ain't gonna happen any time soon.
 
2010-12-23 04:26:13 PM  
Everybody needs a hobby I guess.
 
2010-12-23 04:26:56 PM  
But... but... but.. there's no such thing as rabid atheist.

Satanicpuppy: If they want to celebrate their imaginary friend, what business is that of yours?

This is what we got for staying silent.

The only reason that Christian evangelicals in the US aren't as sue-happy as this guy is, is because it's their religion that happens to prevail in society as it is today.

It's easy to find stones to throw when your house is made of them, but you may not find it all that sustainable in the long run.

Satanicpuppy: What in the hell are you talking about? I'm an agnostic, dumbass.

Spare me.

Holy balls, you have just discovered the next `odd couple' series!

The pledge of allegiance did not have "under God" in it...and it should be removed.

Adams, Jefferson and Franklin thought that the motto of U.S. should have been e publius unum.

In both cases, the "red scare" cause politicians to show the difference between us and "godless commies"

Despite all of that: As an Atheist, the government shouldn't be supporting or denying any religion through it's own action.

Do athiests hate God? hrmmphh.
 
2010-12-23 04:31:05 PM  
My fellow atheists really need to take Phil Plait's advice: don't be a dick. I happily join the chorus chanting, Newdow STFU.
 
2010-12-23 04:31:25 PM  
Whatever.

He's still only half as annoying as your average Fark Christian.
 
2010-12-23 04:31:51 PM  
FTFA: Newdow, 57, who was raised in a nominally Jewish home but told the Brown Alumni Magazine that he was "born an atheist."

Absolutely right. We're all born without any superstitions, just as we are born without a language. It's only as we grow and get indoctrinated by parents/relatives/neighbors/friends/schools/society-in-general that we acquire notions of religious beliefs and become Christians or Jews or Muslims or Buddhists or Wiccans or whatevers. While some of us are able to overcome the indoctrination, it's only a small minority, which accounts for Newdow's lack of success in the courts.

My wife went to high school with this bird. Said he was hot for her but he was creepy even then.

"Under God" aside, I think the pledge is unnecessary.

I can picture it: This guy can sue the Westboro iceholes to remove 'God' off their signs. Crazy lawyer vs Crazy lawyers, Patriot Riders called as witnesses, the courtroom antics alone could best Springer in his prime...

DinghusKhan: My fellow atheists really need to take Phil Plait's advice: don't be a dick. I happily join the chorus chanting, Newdow STFU.

In other words, just keep quiet and put up with whatever the Christian majority wants.

Hmm, if RID shows up, is he going to defend this guy? Since it seems EVERYBODY ITT hates Newdow

This. The world isn't 6000 years old. Keep that pewp out of publicly funded schools.

dead_dangler: "But... but... but.. there's no such thing as rabid atheist."

The word is militant. And no, this guy still doesn't qualify. Being a litigious nuisance doesn't make one dangerous.

The objection is usually that "militant" is a label applied basically to any atheist who hurts a Christian's feelings. They don't care that it's inaccurate, they're just lashing out.

Of course not. There's nothing to hate?

Yep.

Bless his heart.

Think about it. You're a small-dicked bigot with a persecution complex AND an inferiority complex. What readily identifiable groups are left that are socially acceptable for you to publicly hate?
The Irish? Nope.
Jewish people? Nuh-uh.
Women? Not since the 50's.
Black people? Not on your life!
Religious people? Say... now we're on to something. They believe in "stupid" things, so they deserve to be belittled and mocked. And you can hide your bigotry under the guise of science and critical thinking.

It's my business because they're making me do it, too.
