One Nation

Since everyone else has weighed in on this...

What I find amusing is that the majority of people who are decrying the recent court ruling assume that Godless heathen atheists, probably baby-killing drugusers as well, are behind it all.

Sorry, but the majority of atheists who came to their beliefs through logic instead of a kneejerk reaction to some bad church experience really couldn't care less about such matters. Would it offend you that your neighbor, the Buddhist, had a darma bracelet on? Probably not, because it does not affect you in any way. Same thing with words in the Pledge of Allegiance - if you are a true atheist, you wouldn't care if the words "under God" were there or not, because it wouldn't offend you to say something that you think is silly and mythical. No more than you would be offended by the names of the days of the week being Norse gods. Oh, no, I can't say "Thursday" because it means I'm offering fealty to Thor. Whatever.

But see...
I'm a logical atheist, and I don't think God has any place in schools. We're supposedly this melting pot nation that allows freedom to choose how or who you worship or don't worship, right? Well, then our PUBLIC schools are full of kids from all walks of life, religious upbringing, non-religion, what have you. Publicly funded schools should remain truly neutral, and leave faith up to the parents. Or non faith, or whatever.
But, you know, don't mind me, I just spent an hour being verbally beaten up for daring to have an opinion.

Dark Angel
Sadly, Fox decided to not renew Dark Angel for the 2003 season. And there was great weeping and gnashing of teeth...

Re: Dark Angel
That would be because Fox sucks snail snot. They blow, and their execs should all be shot.
