Kentucky to Waste Tax Money on Supernatural Defense

You may recall hearing back in December that the state of Kentucky passed a law in 2006 requiring the Emergency Operations Center of their Department of Homeland Security to post a plaque stating,
The safety and security of the Commonwealth cannot be achieved apart from reliance upon Almighty God.
You may also recall the the bill was sponsored by state representative Tom Riner, also a Southern Baptist pastor. Rep. Riner became upset in December because the annual report issued by this agency did not credit his god. The god reference in the original law was struck down last month as unconstitutional, and Kentucky has announced their intention to appeal.

If you are living in Kentucky and the idea of your state spending tax dollars to appeal this court decision bothers you, please let your state representatives hear from you.
