KY relies on God for Homeland Security

A hearing is set for June 1st in the case of American Atheists et al v. The State of Kentucky.  What’s it all about?  In 2006 the legislature passed a Homeland Security bill which contained the following statement (virtually in the first sentence):  “The executive director [of the Kentucky Office of Homeland Security] shall…publicize the findings of the General Assembly stressing the dependence on Almighty God as being vital to the security of the Commonwealth.”

As Keith Olbermann would say, “WTF?”  The Commonwealth is defending the statute, but it’s impossible to see it standing up in court.  I guess this one will have to grind its way through the system until it’s thrown out–but not before costing Kentucky taxpayers thousands (if not millions) of dollars.
