The Supremes on public prayer
By the usual vote of 5 to 4, the Supremes affirmed that the town of Greece, New York, can continue to intone Christian prayers as a prelude to town meetings. Me, I couldn't care less.
I don't see why some sucker, babbling to his imaginary master, does me or any other atheist any damage. Let them babble on. Town meetings tend to be morons babbling to morons — and since morons are a large part of the population, and no supernatural father figure is listening, much less striking the rest of us down, why stop them?
Let them babble on. The court seemed to infer that secularists could apply to do the invocations. blah blah blah, but what in hell would they say? Me, I have nothing. Well, maybe this:
"Dear Nothing: While I sincerely believe that nothing will result from this invocation, I will do it just for the sake of being a pain in the ass to the many Christians and the rare Jew who usually invoke here. Uh... well... I guess that's good enough. Bye."
