SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - An atheist who sued because he did not want his young daughter exposed to the words "under God" in the Pledge of Allegiance is now filing a suit to bar the saying of a prayer at President Bush's inauguration.
Michael Newdow, of Sacramento, notes that two ministers, the Reverend Franklin Graham and the Reverend Kirbyjon Caldwell, delivered Christian invocations at Bush's first inaugural ceremony in 2001.

I searched, and didn't find it...:(
Oh well, maybe someone who didn't see the other one will see the one I just posted...after all, it is a day later!
Maybe he'll sue God next.
I'd like to see God's response to that lawsuit!! :)
Same subject, different article.
Simply amazing. The same trouble maker re: the Pledge. Can't they at least PRETEND there are more than a handful?
I wish sombody would sue this yutz to prevent him from breathing in my country.
This if from the WashTimes version of this story:
"The presence of Christian influence and prayer, Mr. Newdow said, have forced him to contemplate not using his ticket to the inauguration because he does not want to feel like "an outsider."
My inquiring mind wants to know: HOW THE HELL DID THIS GUY GET A TICKET TO THE INAUGURATION?!?!?!?!?!
My inquiring mind also wants to know, how can he be stopped? I am tired of watching him hog the news pages while he continues with his quest to undermine America. I wish I lived around the corner from him, because my peaceful and law abiding protests would make his life a living hell.
Michael (you should really change your name,as Micheal is the name of an Archangel, maybe Bop-shoo-wop would suit you better) Newdow: hope (as you cannot pray) that I never hit the Mega Millions, 'cause if I do, I'm coming after you, and I am bringing a marching band with me.
This guy needs to be squashed like a bug (figuratively). Saying a prayer at an official function does not establish a state sponsored religion, and is the free expression of religious faith. The two things spelled out in the first amendment. Go away Newdow!
Could that work? I think it could!!
I'm praying for you to win the lottery!!
See my last post!! I'm PRAYING for another freeper to win the lottery, so he can go make Newdow's life miserable!! LOL What a concept!!
Narcissist wants attention.
I say give him a court date of 27-January....
But if they did that, wouldn't they have the chance to block the prayer till the case was heard?
Yeah, another 15 minutes of fame!
>>>But if they did that, wouldn't they have the chance to block the prayer till the case was heard?
Only if a judge issued an injunction.
