Kentucky Homeland Security Office is God’s Fluffer

by

ky-hs-officeIn 2006 the Kentucky State Legislature, lead by State Representative (and baptist minister) Tom Riner passed a homeland security law stating that the key duty of the State’s Homeland Security Office is “stressing the dependence on Almighty God as being vital to the security of the Commonwealth.”  That’s right GOD is the key, not bomb sniffing dogs, cops on the street, or radiation sensors – their answer is religion.

The law also requires that reports to Sate leaders credit god, that a plaque be placed at the entrance to the State Emergency Operations Center that reads in part “The safety and security of the Commonwealth cannot be achieved apart from reliance upon Almighty God.”

State Rep. Riner is a bit hurt that the 2008 report didn’t fluff god’s wang and that the Kentucky Homeland Security website doesn’t say god is the state’s top cop either.  Apparently in a dangerous world minister Representative Riner has nothing better to do but be all kinds of butthurt because the government of Kentucky isn’t violating the first amendment to his satisfaction. Saying:

“This is recognition that government alone cannot guarantee the perfect safety of the people of Kentucky… Government itself, apart from God, cannot close the security gap. The job is too big for government.”

What more do you want from government?  Security?  HA!  We should all follow Rep. Riner’s advice and put god first.  Next time you’re being assaulted, raped, or robbed, make sure you pray BEFORE you call 911.  It’s all about FAITH people!
