Atheists and non-religious organizations sue to take religion out of Obama's inauguration ceremony:
In a lawsuit filed Tuesday in Washington, the plaintiffs demand that the words "so help me God" not be added to the end of the president's oath of office.
In addition, the lawsuit objects to plans for ministers to deliver an invocation and a benediction in which they may discuss God and religion.
How many times do we have to say it? The Constitution guarantees freedom of religion, not freedom from religion.
The First Amendment provides:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Michael Newdow filed similar unsuccessful suits over inauguration ceremonies in 2001 and 2005. This one will also be unsuccessful.
