No terrorist attacks in Kentucky, thank God!

To paraphrase George Wallace: The terrorists don't even know where they are much less where Kentucky is.

But that's not the real reason terrorists have not struck in Kentucky - at least since 2006. The real reason terrorists have left Kentucky alone is because of a Kentucky law which requires the state Office of Homeland Security to acknowledge that "dependence upon Almighty God ... [is] vital to the security of the Commonwealth."

According to a report by John Cheves posted at, "Homeland Security is ordered to publicize God's benevolent protection in its reports, and it must post a plaque at the entrance to the state Emergency Operations Center with an 88-word statement that begins, 'The safety and security of the Commonwealth cannot be achieved apart from reliance upon Almighty God.'"

Guess who's responsible for this desecration of our Constitution: Yup, a Kentucky State Rep who is also a Baptist preacher, one Tom Riner.

As stupid as this is, it isn't funny. It is a slap in the face of all the people in Kentucky and the United States who do not believe as does this idiot Baptist preacher. It is in direct violation of the Constitution of the United States as it "establishes" a particular religion. And it makes the state of Kentucky, known for its horses, look like its inhabited by a bunch of horses asses.

PZ Myers at Pharyngula [and a h/t to him!] says "I try to explain to people that American politics has been dominated by lunatics for many years, and they just don't believe me."

I assume that if we put more such messages on every building and every person’s outer clothing, we would all avoid accidents, death etc. Does God know if the wearer is faithful or just playing the odds? What if the message is written in Hebrew, Arabic, or some other foreign language? I am not sure that God is an American. The only known writing that is attributed to God, as per the Bible, was the Ten Commandments given to Moses. It was not written in English. I wish more of the religious people would have more faith in the power of their god and less in the ability of charlatans to tell us what God wants or is thinking. They assume God is retired and gave up on making any changes from the original six days of creation, so long ago. We keep hearing from people that assume any criticism indicates hate. I think it indicates an intolerance of stupidity, but I am biased.
