In Kentucky, a homeland security law requires the state’s citizens to acknowledge the security provided by the Almighty God--or risk 12 months in prison.

The law and its sponsor, state representative Tom Riner, have been the subject of controversy since the law first surfaced in 2006, yet the Kentucky state Supreme Court has refused to review its constitutionality, despite clearly violating the First Amendment’s separation of church and state.

I personally find this to be the biggest injustice towards any certain group of people after the Patriot Act and SB 1070 in Arizona.

Where is the ACLU?  This is like a wet dream for them.  I'm a BAPTIST and I BELIEVE that ultimate security is provided by almighty God but would go to jail rather than be forced into such a thing.  On the principle that in the future it could easily be a pledge to support Islam that was being forced on me or my family.

In the 21st century that is truly mind-boggling and shocking.

Life is all too much ............................................. and not enough.

It is only when you form your question precisely and accurately that you receive the true answer.

What charge would they imprison you on?

Failure to believe in something?

It's not being reported by the mainstream press...

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

I could see them hulling me off to jail after I say "Which god do y'all mean."  It really sets a bad prescient. The fools don't really get it either until it is to late.

I would rather have a bullet placed in to my skull than being forced to believe a fictitious being.

It does seem a bit suspect.  If true it is outrageous.
