God First, then Homeland Security

Via the Rachel Maddow Show

Kentucky law currently requires its department of homeland security to depend on god. This is the opening portion of a statement that is required to be posted outside their entrance:

The safety and security of the commonwealth cannot be achieved apart from reliance on almighty god…

Any high schooler should be able to tell you that requiring a state agency to rely on god is a violation of the first amendment. Thank the Universe that a group has gotten the stones together to sue the Commonwealth.

Today the story appeared in the Chicago Tribune.
