Ninth Circuit Upheld Last week the Supreme Court declined to review a recent decision of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals (of pledge of allegiance fame). The case involved a man who was handing out advertisements for Bible based summer camps on school grounds. He sued the school district after the latter forced him to stop, citing church/state concerns. The court ruled that his constitutional rights had indeed been violated by the school district's actions.

I don't have much comment on this except to show you the headline from the religious website "AgapePress" ("Agape", pronounced "a-GAH-pay", being a Greek word which refers to God's boundless love):

SCOTUS Agrees with 9th Circuit: School District Cannot Ban Religious Flyers

Lovely. Of course, declining to hear a case is far different from agreeing with the decision. These are the same folks who complain about liberal bias every time a newspaper reports a decline in Bush's approval ratings.
