So Help Me, God!

Latest news about the US President-elect Barack Obama is that he wants the following words "so help me God" to be included in his oath on Inauguration Day. This is a confirmed fact as Obama specifically requested this to the Chief Justice to have this phrase included. Interestingly, this has stirred a bee's nest as a group of atheists want to bar Chief Justice Roberts from complying with this request and including the words, "so help me God" in the oath.

The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court in which plaintiffs stated that Obama can use the words but Roberts shouldnt be the one to prompt these words as part of the oath.

The lawyers who are in the Justice Department called this whole rigmarole totally ridiculous. And you know, I think the more I read about what Obama is doing, the more I respect this amazing man. I wish we had more principle-based leaders like him in this world.
