Let's tell the WHOLE story, shall we?<quoted text>
Looks like the courts don't agree with you. LOL
Atheist lose again!
John Calvert, a lawyer and intelligent designproponent declared:
The Seventh Judicial Circuit of the Court of Appeals of the United States held that atheism is a religion. Therefore, it cannot be promoted by a public school. Currently, public schools are often unwittingly promoting atheism through a dogmatic and uncritical teaching of materialistic theories of origins.
The CONTEXT is EVERYTHING: evil dickheads like you, had FORCED prisoners to comply with your evil religious practice, by giving special meeting-priveledges to True Believers only.
An atheist sued the prison officials for equal treatment-- and won.
So the court considers a nice tidy LEGAL FICTION, that atheism was "religion" in order to treat prisoners who were NOT True Believers with equality as required by the law.
You DO know what a LEGAL FICTION is don't you?
Here's another one: corporations.
The LEGAL FICTION is that these are a person, granted certain rights under the law.
Of course, everyone knows corporations are NOT a person, but are a business comprised of buildings, property, assets, etc-- but not REALLY a person. That is a convenient LEGAL FICTION.
Just as calling "atheism" a "religion" is.
Are you REALLY this stupid, or did you need special stupid lessons?
