All Praise Allah — American Style

November 29th, 2008 | by Steve O |

The American Taliban strike again, Kentucky passes a law that requires Homeland Security to credit God;

The law that organized the Homeland Security office first lists Homeland Security’s duty to recognize that government itself can’t secure the state without God, even before mentioning other duties, which include distributing millions of dollars in federal grants and analyzing possible threats.

The religious language was tucked into a floor amendment by Riner and passed the General Assembly overwhelmingly. It lists the office’s initial duty as “stressing the dependence on Almighty God as being vital to the security of the Commonwealth.”

Included in the law is a requirement that the office must post a plaque at the entrance to the state Emergency Operations Center with an 88-word statement that begins, “The safety and security of the Commonwealth cannot be achieved apart from reliance upon Almighty God.”

We should start a list of States that are too dumb to belong in our great Union.

  1. Kentucky
  2. Texas

    Nah, we voted for Obama, and we have Staten Island right off our coast which is a mecca of intelligence.

    In that praise, do we include the seemingly indiscriminate killing of babies during hurricanes or tidal waves as a punishment for the sins of others?

    Let’s not get overly silly here, shall we? Referring to God does not make one unfit for government or statehood. As evidence for this thesis, consider that Thomas Jefferson and the continental congress, in 1776, in the Declaration of Independence, referred to the Creator as the one who endows men with inalienable rights like life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness and to nature’s God as the one who entitles nations to a separate and equal station among the powers of the earth and concluded that document with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence so perhaps recognizing the almighty doesn’t make a state too dumb for inclusion in the union…unless, of course, Thomas Jefferson was too dumb for presidency and the founders of our nation were too dumb to found an independent nation.

    Wait! I know, lets ask Palin where the “real Americans” live. That’ll be your list, SteveO.

    Hey Steve-O:
    When you GOOGLE ‘Team Bio” you get: “An independent liberal left group blog offering a diversity of opinion and many talented writers from all sides of the political spectrum …..”
    Isn’t the belief in God (whichever one, you choose) an opinion as valid as yours (one of the many talented writers?)
    It never fails to amaze me how the liberal left claims to be open minded and accepting of different opinions, but only as long as those opinions are in lock step with the left.

    Lets have change, that’s what You wanted, so lets try to be judgment free. As far as palin goes, she lost, and her silly comments were the cause of many lost votes. I have no sour grapes, so perhaps You should be a fair winner.
