Illogical rantings on "under God" issue

I couldn't pass this one up.

Miami News-Record - Gerald Stone Column

" At a time when we need God and religion in our lives more than ever, the U.S. Supreme Court is poised to strike down the words �under God� from the Pledge of Allegiance."

I'll add some clarification to this statement:

"we" = you and those who believe as you do
"our lives" = the lives of you and those who believe as you do.

It was a bit unclear. It sounded like you are representing non-Judeo-Christians.

And more God in your life requires "under God" in the national pledge of allegiance? Does not follow...

"This poor excuse for a human must have been off his medication for a long time."

I can hardly begin to respond to this fallaciousness. Now I really know that you never read the court decision text.

"the Supreme Court will probably hear the case sometime this year and you can expect �under God� to be taken out of the pledge.

The Bush administration, in its petition to the high court, argues that the Pledge is not like a prayer or invocation. They're the only ones making sense. But, the atheist-inclined liberals will probably get their way."

So, anyone who agrees with the court's decision, for whatever reason, is painted as "atheist-inclined" and a "liberal". That is such an enlightened viewpoint.

And why is it that many Republicans want the government to be involved in actively furthering a particular faith but in most other aspects of life (e.g. gun control) they want to be left alone?
