Tree...Rope...This Guy

Some assembly required.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- The atheist who's spent years trying to ban recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance in public schools said he'll file a new lawsuit this week.

Michael Newdow plans to ask a federal court to order removal of the national motto "In God We Trust" from U.S. coins and currency. He said it violates the religious rights of atheists who belong to his "First Amendment Church of True Science."

Jesus Christ. Seriously, dude...fuck off.

The church's "three suggestions" are "question, be honest and do what's right." Newdow said it wouldn't be right to take up a collection when the money says "In God We Trust."

And you'll be funding this litigation with what, exactly? Wampum? Food stamps? Sexual favors?

The truly pathetic part of all of this is that when he filed his loser lawsuit over the Pledge of Allegiance last year, nearly every pundit, comedian, satirist, and talk show host responded by asking, "What's next? Removing 'In God We Trust' from US currency?", as a way to show how utterly fucking retarded this guy is.

Apparently, he was paying attention.

I'd like to say I was out the door and on my to the range immediately upon reading this, but it's getting late and I was just there a few hours ago. Had I known...
