President Obama's Inauguration invokes God as source of justice

President Obama invoked God as the foundation of justice and equality in his inauguration speech.

How quickly he forgot those of the 20% who supported his re-election (and the history of the Bible used as the foundation of slavery and bigotry).

But then, we the atheists and agnostics are invisible, because we make ourselves so. As his campaign advisor said, he did not view us as a constituency.

Considering the massive turnout my petition to the White House got (seventy total signatures), I don't blame Obama much. It would be political suicide to support atheists and agnostics that don't support themselves.

Recall the flappadoodle he got in a previous speech where he simply acknowledged that we existed? He got no political benefit for doing so, thus why should he do it again?
