Living In Scalia's America

You know that Christian theocracy thing that all the Christians say is just a fairy tale? You know, that one thing that they roll their eyes about when us atheists get worried that America is headed in that direction? Guess what? With O'Connor stepping down from the Supremes, it's right around the corner. From Justice Scalia's dissent in the Kentucky Ten Commandments case, Mccreary County, Kentucky, et al., Petitioners V. American Civil Liberties Union of Kentucky et al:

[link] With respect to public acknowledgment of religious belief, it is entirely clear from our Nation'’s historical practices that the Establishment Clause permits this disregard of polytheists and believers in unconcerned deities, just as it permits the disregard of devout atheists.

Golly - I sure like being told by a fucking Supreme Court Justice that I can be legally "disregarded".

Where the fuck did my America go?

What makes you think your America ever existed?

It's funny how the religious mind just can't get itself around the idea that some people don't think religiously: What the hell is a "devout atheist?"
