  • Wow, surely you don't need to be an atheist to think that's stupid, right? surely even if religious people agree with their "finding", they should be pretty furious that their government wasted time on that.

    Then again, they're now wasting the Supreme Court's time to get it repealed. I'd say the best solution is to just never again vote for the idiots responsible, but don't go out of your way to undo it.
  • I'm ok with it, if we can have one modification; citizens can sue churches and all Christians living in the state any time anyone in the US is hurt by terrorism on US soil. Or at least on Tennessee soil.
  • Suing a church for an act of G*d? Excellent. Checkmate in one.
  • This is yet another reason I've signed the petition to allow Louisville to secede from Kentucky.
  • A 2002 "legislative finding" said the "safety and security of the commonwealth cannot be achieved apart from reliance upon Almighty God."

    Sounds like they're just covering their asses. "Hey, that terrorist attack in our state wasn't our fault! Not enough people believed in God!"
  • Kentucky, where "We don't came from no monkey."

    While this thing might have flown in the 1700's when the country was getting off the ground, there is no call for putting anything that resembles a state enforcement of religion into a law in the 21st C.
  • Well, God's probably doing a better job of securing the homeland than the TSA.

    /0 terrorists caught and counting
  • Stop wasting tax payer money on this worthless witch hunt.

    In the 1700s, which was (aside from all the dysentery) probably more high brow than our current era, they would have called it Providence. "We trust our security to Providence".
  • so do the people of KY just figure is Sept 11th one of the those days God takes off every year for a little Me time and figures he'll just deal with whatever happened afterwards? If that's what's happening it's fine with me but could the Pope ask God to maybe have someone cover homeland security on his days off? Maybe He and JC can schedule their vacations so that someone is always in charge?
  • On one hand, "required its executive director to publicize "dependence on Almighty God" in agency training and educational materials" doesn't exactly seem like a throwaway reference like using in the year of our Lord xxx or a meaningless resolution proclaiming Thanksgiving or whatnot.

    On the other hand, I'm guessing there must be a similar "require X agency to do Y" in the 1950s law putting "In God We Trust" on US currency. And the courts have mostly gone along with that nonsense.

    Needs "ironic" tag.
  • Okay, so:

    (1) If God is providing security, then why do I have to take my shoes off at the airport? Are you implying that God can do everything except stop shoe bombs?

    (2) If God is providing security, then why do bad things keep happening? Because if bad things keep happening more or less as statistics would dictate, then how is that different from God not being there at all?

    (3) If there is a God and if it cares at all about our puny human concerns, I'd be very surprised if it thought the lip service with no substance was a good thing. I would think the best way to "praise God" would be to be kind to your fellow man and look out for the least of us (as at least one God said in one holy book).

    Even if Jehovah witness, bet he never testify.

  • Citizens represented by the group American Atheists are asking

    As someone who is atheist and not particularly forgiving of or respectful to people that suffer the schizophrenic delusion that an embodiment of nature is continually staring over their shoulder while they masturbate and judging them... I have to admit that "American Atheists" is still something I consider a signal for derp incoming, like "Daily Kos" or "Cato Institute".

    Sam Gunn, is that you?
  • On the down side, it's pretty clearly saying that the state of Tennessee endorses Christianity.

    On the plus side, now we know that the legislators think their cops and all are incompetent and can't do anything right, and the entire population of Tennessee is so stupid that there's no hope of fixing that. Because otherwise, there'd be a chance of catching the bad guy without God coming down personally and saying "Here he is, y'all!"

    Why limit it to acts of terrorism, why not all acts of god? Tornado takes your doublewide, sue. Flood sweeps away Fido, SUE. Earthquake destroys your town, SUE!!!

    /Suing, it's the American way

    You mean the Germans? And why on Earth would we have German as our national language?

    /"God" is a German word and you quite clearly said no translating allowed.

    I suspect the graphic design budget for that flick was a tuna sandwich.

    Well, that should cover them all... after all, aren't all Gods simply "God" to the worshiper of that God?

    /really have to stop smoking incense
