"Breathtakingly unconstitutional"

Apparently the Kentucky Department of Homeland Security is legally required to acknowledge God's role in protecting the state. Specifically it's required to acknowledge "the dependence on Almighty God as being vital to the security of the Commonwealth."

Here's an article about it.

State Rep. Tom Riner, a Southern Baptist minister was instrumental in establishing the requirement in 2006. "This is recognition that government alone cannot guarantee the perfect safety of the people of Kentucky," Riner said. "Government itself, apart from God, cannot close the security gap. The job is too big for government."

When I read that, I concluded that if God can take care of the stuff that Government can't, then he can take care of the whole job. Isn't that what "almighty" means?

Unfortunately, I couldn't find a cartoon on this topic so I had to throw this one together myself.
