SCOTUS has ruled that specifically branded prayers that reference Jesus H. Christ by name are A-OK at public meetings in the final resolution of a case that began in the town of Greece, NY.

 

This is a great victory for fans of the United States of Jesus, and a startling loss for those promoting a rational world view.

I noticed the dissenting opinion was written by Justice Kagan. Sore loser Jew doesn't know her place.

 

Wolf-pac.com is pushing for an amendment to the Constitution to get money out of politics, because the Constitution is the only way to legally go over the heads of the corporatist cabal that is SCOTUS. But what can you do when the Constitution already says you can't do that, and the court defies it anyway?

 

In related news, CJ Roy Moore of Alabama just declared that only Christians have 1st Amendment rights. I asked myself (again) Where did this clown get his law degree?, but now I'm wondering about the whole damn Supreme Court.

 

We smugly call ourselves the greatest country in the world, yet we have lost control of our government.

The fundies will be throwing parties all around the country tonight.

 

SCOTUS has set a precedent and Christian lawyers will be using it for centuries to come.

I'm thinking; "The United Christian States of America."  Of course, a large Muslim population might not like this, either.
