Anti-terror law requires God be acknowledged

Under state law, God is Kentucky's first line of defense against terrorism. on

The 2006 law organizing the state Office of Homeland Security lists its initial duty as "stressing the dependence on Almighty God as being vital to the security of the Commonwealth."

Specifically, 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."

Hey, I'm originally from Kentucky. So, I just gotta laugh. :)

Actually, if they were taking the 'christian' point of view that promoted a policy that followed Christ's advice and turned out other cheek and loved our enemies as if they were our brothers and said that then we would be safer and more secure as a nation, then I probably wouldn't be laughing.

But no, this sounds more like God will appear with his gleaming sword and defend the commonwealth like a character in a comic book.
