Christmas Gift for O'Connor

by PG

If you're wondering what to get the retired Supreme Court justice in your life, consider the VeggieCreche.
The fuss coming solely from deists about restoring the Pledge of Allegiance to its pre-Cold War condition strongly indicated that, contrary to Justice O'Connor's claim, "under God" did not have merely ceremonial place in it. However, I feel safe in saying that any municipality that puts a VeggieTales nativity scene by City Hall is not creating an impermissible connection between church and state. With lights, sounds and "a gourdgeous cow costume," this truly is the point at which Christianity ceases to be a religion and becomes cultural artifact: campy, brightly colored and plastic.
