Justice William Brennan, who in 1984 was the first high court justice to refer to “ceremonial deism” in a written opinion, explained that the term covers religious references that "have lost through rote repetition any significant religious content."

Sheesh!  How could anyone miss that rote repetition of catch phrases is one way to reinforce content?
