    just me i suppose, but i find this quote

    dreary and depressing on too many

    levels.

    Who is US Attorney, Robert F. Hodges and what is the source of this quote?

    I’ve done a quick search, and the only place I found with any mention of him is Atheist DOTD. I would really like to know if this is an actual statement made by a U.S. attorney.

    *I meant QOTD, of course.

    A very curious quote no matter how mistaken in regards to what ‘the state’ can do constitutionally, since it has joyfully participated in the superstition stuffing of late.

    Unfortunately, the original article concerning an Indiana Supreme Court ruling is now behind a paywall. There is a summary here:
