Tyranny of the extremist minority

The tyranny of the extremist minority continues.
Of course, it's coming from San Francisco, the most unAmerican circuit in the US of A.
SAN FRANCISCO - Reciting the Pledge of Allegiance in public schools was ruled unconstitutional Wednesday by a federal judge who granted legal standing to two families represented by an atheist who lost his previous battle before the U.S. Supreme Court.
U.S. District Judge Lawrence Karlton ruled that the pledge's reference to one nation "under God" violates school children's right to be "free from a coercive requirement to affirm God."
Karlton said he was bound by precedent of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which in 2002 ruled in favor of Sacramento atheist Michael Newdow that the pledge is unconstitutional when recited in public schools.
Judge Karlton was an appointee of President Peanut, Jimmy Carter. So you know he's somewhat to the far, far, far left of center. And you know about the anti-faith Newdow.
But let's think about common sense for a moment here. If you don't want to say "under God" whilst pledging in school, who's gonna notice? Just move your lips in some nonsensical way and no one can tell the difference.
But no.
That's not good enough for the hate-filled Newdow.
I'm not the best of believers, but when the day comes, and Mr. Newdow discovers -- too late -- that there is indeed a Creator, and his sentence is permanent banishment to the unquenchable fires of Satan's back yard, his cries will be audible far and wide.
Yet none will hear them.
