WASHINGTON -- The Supreme Court is brushing aside an atheist's challenge to religion in government, refusing to hear a complaint about President Obama adding "so help me God" to his inaugural oath of office.

The high court on Monday refused to hear an appeal from Michael Newdow, who argued that government references to God are unconstitutional and infringe on his religious beliefs.
Many presidents have added "so help me God" to the oath.

Newdow sued to keep Obama from doing so and lost. He wanted overturned an appeals court's ruling saying it would be useless to ban Chief Justice John Roberts from prompting Obama to say "so help me God" because the president could have easily found someone else to administer the oath.

The case is Newdow v. Roberts, 10-757.

If a POTUS wants to add those words to the oath by his own volition, fine.

Michael Newdow should find a new hobby.

As long as the President isn't pushing his religious beliefs as law I fail to see the problem here. We elect people to offices and people have baggage.
