    Atheist activists have filed a lawsuit through the ACLU against the U.S. National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) last week to have the Declaration of Independence removed from public viewing at the Capitol Rotunda. The activists maintain that a document with multiple references to God in its text prominently displayed on government property is completely 'unconstitutional' in addition to being highly 'offensive.'

    The claimants, a newly registered non-profit group, Organizing for Secular Justice, have issued a press-release with this explanation: "For far too long has the religious right been suppressing our liberties by force-feeding the idea of a Christian God to individuals under the guise of freedom. To evolve past such archaic ideas and superstitions is an idea whose time has come. This charade of bigotry ends now!"

    If the lawsuit is successful, the Declaration of Independence will be removed from the Rotunda of the National Archives and placed into permanent storage, away from the public eye.

    "We're better off this way," said Bryon Fuller, one of the directors at Organizing for Secular Justice. "As long as there remains any reference to God of any kind in a public building, especially within that outdated wrinkled-up piece of paper showcased in the Capitol, there it will remain as a monument to ignorance, tyranny, and oppression of everyday Americans. In its current form the Declaration of Independence is by far the biggest threat to our liberties. There is no place for it in a truly free and modern society." -

    Embolden the PC terrorists like SCOTUS did, and they never quit coming.

    The goal:

    All vestiiges of God or Christ have to be eliminated from society. When that is done, gathering to worship will be outlawed. There is no end in sight.

    Wow...talking about sawing off the branch one's sitting on! :tonofbricks:

    These poor wittle atheists...can't even read a historical reference to God without feeling like their liberties are threatened. What fragile creatures they must be.

    PS: are we sure this isn't a spoof?

    I like this article from the same source . . .

    Underground helium may cause California to fly next Tuesday

    Will we see it float, comrades? All we know at this point is that California may have plans to become a gigantic flying cruise ship like 'Castle in the Sky' or like sky city, 'Columbia,' only bigger, as early as next Tuesday.

    With its water problems no longer a concern due to the state's new ability to travel to greener pastures, Californians can now focus all their efforts on liberating neighboring states from capitalism.
