91 People in Kentucky’s Capitol Have Lost Their Minds!February 11, 2006 at 12:04 pm | Posted in Crazy Christian Politicians | 1 Comment
In yesterday’s edition of the Advocate Messenger there is a article about House Bill 277. This bill passed in the House of Representatives with 91 yeas, 3 nays, 0 abstained, and 5 not voting. Here is the main parts of the bill:
- AN ACT relating to the promotion of history and declaring an emergency.
- Create a new section of KRS Chapter 6 and amend KRS 7.090 to direct the Legislative Research Commission to display the national motto "In God We Trust" on the wall directly above and behind the dais of the Speaker of the House of Representatives; require the display to be consistent with the historic and patriotic display in the United States House of Representatives.
I don’t know what these people are thinking. How the hell did these people get elected into office? If the Senate passes this bill, I guess we can just forget about the separation of church and state in Kentucky! We cannot let this happen. You do not want this state or nation to become a theocracy. I urge you to please contact your representative and senator and tell them that this is a very bad thing to do to the state of Kentucky.
The reason I have a problem with "In God We Trust" is the word "we." The word we implies that everybody trusts or believes in god. We also do not want The Ten Commandments posted in any public and government places.
