How Atheists are Persecuting Kentuckians

Historical markers like this one in front of Mother of God Church in Covington represent Kentucky’s respect for our religious heritage. According to American Atheists, who apparently have nothing better to do with their time, requiring a state worker to install a sign like this one is “persecution.”

AlterNet has an interesting theory, that atheists in Kentucky are being “persecuted.”

The law requires that plaques celebrating the power of the Almighty God be installed outside the state Homeland Security building–and carries a criminal penalty of up to 12 months in jail if one fails to comply. The plaque’s inscription begins with the assertion, “The safety and security of the Commonwealth cannot be achieved apart from reliance upon Almighty God.”

AlterNet characterizes this as “A Year in Jail for Not Believing in God? How Kentucky is Persecuting Atheists.”

“Persecute” means “to pursue with harassing or oppressive treatment, especially because of religion, race, or beliefs; harass persistently.” Why does the hanging of a plaque that acknowledges the sovereignty of God “persecute” atheists? Here is what one of the ostensibly “persecuted” atheists has to say about it, via Fox News.

“I’m not aware of any other state or commonwealth that is attempting to dump their clear responsibility for protecting their citizens onto God or any other mythological creature,” Buckner said.
Hmmm. Hey, maybe this is where the love for Marxism comes in. I mean, it says “In God We Trust” clearly on the money. Maybe they think that means God has to pay for everything, including their cell phones. If they think acknowledging trust in God in regard to our homeland security means we are expecting God to protect us by Himself, then maybe….? Who knows? These people make sense only to themselves, I suppose.
My opinion is that the ACLU, which is costing our very Christian Bluegrass State boatloads of money in lawsuits over such things, is the real persecutor here, along with the judges who agree with them.
David Floyd has this right.

State Rep. David Floyd, R-Bardstown, said the preamble to the Kentucky constitution references a people “grateful to almighty God,” so he said he sees no constitutional violation in enlisting God in the state’s homeland security efforts.

“God help us if we don’t,” he said.

Will the federal courts rule that Kentucky’s Constitution is unconstitutional, at least by attrition? Stay tuned.
