No less rediculous than the others
http://newsthump.com/2013/12/11/church-o...eme-court/

Two Scientologists took legal action after officials refused to recognise batshit crazy church as a place of worship with rights to hold a marriage ceremony.

After the case was heard the judge told the court, ”Having a building where you speak to the non-existent entity of your choice is a very personal matter.”

“And it is entirely up to you whether you think that this entity is the zombie love-child of the creator of the universe, or a time-travelling lizard alien from the planet Xanu.”

“Those people who are saying that ‘scientology is not a proper religion like mine’ are somewhat missing the point.”

“If we’re going to put all religions under proper legal scrutiny I think you’d find that pretty soon there wouldn’t be any religions left at all.”

===========

This is probably a made up story. I think if any supreme court justice had made those remarks, it would have been the top news story of the day.
But still funny !!!

Insanity - doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results

How credible is this story? It doesn't seem believable that a judge in America would be allowed to say such things about religion.

I believe this was in the UK...

EDIT:

It does say "spoof news" at the top of the page... But the case is genuine, whether or not the judge said that, I don't know.
