Wow, that's fucked up. No

Wow, that's fucked up. No way that's constitutional. Of course Kentucky's state offices are probably in a trailer park.

I think they should also

I think they should also have a big banner over the state Office of Homeland Security that says "GOTT MIT UNS!"

as a kentuckian who is

as a kentuckian who is goddamn proud of his home state (when people in europe ask me where i'm from, i usually say "kentucky" as opposed to "america" ), i would like to point out that our state has been highjacked by fundies just like most of the united states, and i'm fucking sick of it.  growing up, i watched assholes like ernie fletcher and US senator mitch mcconnell (an ardent supporter of all of bush's policies) climb the political ladder and i always fucking hated their guts.  even in middle school i had enough sense to hate their fucking guts.  our state was settled and founded by practical, intrepid men who were definitely spiritual in private but publically and politically firmly secular.  daniel boone came from an excommunicated quaker family and never set foot in a church if he could help it.  he liked meditating over the bible, but he also liked drinking whiskey and hunting with the "savages" and he probably shared more spiritual views with the shawnee than with the white settlers.

fundies are not the only people, nor even the majority of people, in kentucky.  as i've said several times on this forum when my state or the bible belt has been brought up, most of my family and the poor farming community they live in are sensible, stubborn, independent old-style democrats who are fairly liberal-minded where politics are concerned, and strong believers in the separation of church and state.  while most of them are cultural churchgoers, many are not.  you'd have to drag most of my family in eastern kentucky to church kicking and screaming, especially my father and all my uncles.  though they would readily tell you they believe in god and the bible, they're just not very concerned about it.  mountain people tend to be individualistic, with a live-and-let-live attitude, and, as far as they think about it all, ultimately pantheistic spiritual views.

You know most theists, especially ones not old enough, don't know what you just said. I am quite sure you ask most Jews, they know.

Sadly, you are probably right.

Me: What, no "ARBEIT MACHT FREI!" to go along with it?

 

The kicker is that these people haven't even gone far enough in their thinking processes to bother asking, "What if God is actually Allah?"  Not to mention, "What, exactly, is the state Office of Homeland Security supposed to actually do in pursuance of this God-mandate?"

 

Oh, wait...how silly of me...I should have known...these people don't do thinking.

 

Never mind.

Please pardon me if I'm being serious where I should be humorous:

The parallel I was illustrating is that anyone can claim god is on their side and protecting them. Anyone. The gates of Auschwitz don't as directly relate.

If we're gonna mix Nazi

If we're gonna mix Nazi phrases and theism with national security, lets at least go with ein feist burg ist unser gott.

It takes a village to raise an idiot.

Save a tree, eat a vegetarian.

Sometimes " The Majority " only means that all the fools are on the same side.

Technically it would just be "Ich bin Berliner. " When Kennedy said that some people laughed because "ein Berliner" was slang for a jelly donut.

No pardon needed, Jill, and of course you're right.  I just figured that if the one was used, the other one couldn't be very far behind.

Hey, don't knock this, after all terrorist attacks are down 100 percent in Kentucky since this was inacted. Remember all the terrorist attacks in KY before when we were a secular nation?
