The God Files

 God is Kentucky's first line of defense against terrorism.

The 2006 law organizing the state Office of Homeland Security lists its initial duty as "stressing the dependence on Almighty God as being vital to the security of the Commonwealth."

Specifically, Homeland Security is ordered to publicize God's benevolent protection in its reports, and it 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."

Not mentioned in this article, but seen elsewhere, the current governor of Kentucky seems not to have thanked God enough for the proper job he's done protecting the state over the last year. For shame!


What was that about separation of God and State...?
In that case, if they're true Christians (it's possible that both of those live in Kentucky...), they will have no Homeland Security whatsoever, but will accept with grace and humility whatever fate Almighty God in His wisdom chooses to inflict upon them. I believe, having read all four Gospels, that this is the model presented by Jesus when he submitted to his execution. Aren't Christians supposed to live in Imitation of Christ?

If, on the other hand, they choose not to follow that model, they must remember that God helps those who help themselves, and expecting God to get you out of difficulties rarely earns you a lot of cooperation from God.

Just sayin'. *wry smile*
