Kentucky back on the “shameful state” list

A few days ago I wrote about how American Atheists and 10 Kentuckians (I just can’t get used to that word) have filed a lawsuit to remove a reference to “Almighty God” in the Office of Homeland Security’s charter. I naively thought the story was over, but it seems as though the Attorney General’s Office has decided to appeal the ruling.

The AG is trying to argue that references to God aren’t particularly religious, which is like trying to claim that water isn’t wet. It’s quite obviously unconstitutional, but as usual that doesn’t seem to stop many Christians from fighting tooth and nail to get God to be a vital part of government.

You’d think all of these public resources could be devoted towards, oh I don’t know, something useful rather than this annoying bullshit. The US is the only country so far that hasn’t been able to get their economy back on track, and I blame these kinds of stupid distraction as the main reason. Hey guys, stop fighting amongst yourselves and get your country back in order. With your economy in the shitter, it’s making it hard for guys like me to make a living here!

    God isn’t religious like fire isn’t hot, like desserts aren’t dry, like ice-cream isn’t delicious, like salt isn’t salty, like sand isn’t sandy, like noise isn’t noisey, like pee isn’t yellow, like cats aren’t evil, and like trees aren’t wood.

    Did you know that the first English language Bible printed in the USA was done so under an act of Congress? What would you say if they actually had it printed and published for use is schools?

    Don’t you think that the framers of our Constitution knew better what the Cosntitution entails than ‘scholars’ today?

    America IS a Christian nation – established for God’s purposes…by God’s grace.

    Look up your state’s preamble and see what these founders actually believed and lived and died for.

    Your privilage in the USA is to disbelieve in our Creator – but the fact is HE exists and America was founded upon HIS Word and by His grace.

    According to this article, AG Jack Conway is appealing so he can say he’s pro-religion during the Democratic primaries next year.

    It seems that this agnostic Kentuckian will have to call Conway’s office (502-696-5300) or email him (attorney.general@ag.ky.gov) Tuesday to ask why he’s wasting my tax dollars on a frivolous appeal.

    I wonder if the troll is pastor Testes.

    Treaty of Tripoli, dude.

    Art. 11. As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion; as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion, or tranquillity, of Mussulmen; and, as the said States never entered into any war, or act of hostility against any Mahometan nation, it is declared by the parties, that no pretext arising from religious opinions, shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries.

    (emphasis mine)

    Authored by a US diplomat, passed unanimously by the US Senate, signed by US President John Adams. President Adams was also the first Vice President of the United States, and held the office of Vice President in 1789, when the Constitution first went into effect. Deal with it.

    You are correct, but probably not for the reason you think you are correct. I’m certain this won’t change your mind about your mistaken notion that the US is a christian nation, but I feel the need to call you on the details of your claims.

    Robert Aitken petitioned the United States Congress on January 21, 1781, to authorize the printing of a complete Bible in the English language, specifically the King James Version. Why was this necessary? Because public domain laws were not yet commonplace, the KJV Bible was still arguably under the ‘copyright’ of the English Crown. Aitken needed permission from Congress in order to avoid copyright infringement penalties.
