Atheists can be jailed in Kentucky for not acknowledging God.

I suggest one reads the article and see for yourself just how crazy some Evangelist are......I mean really, sending folks to jail just because they don't believe as you do.....what a sad time in our History!!!

I agree! To make such a ridiculous law, under the guise of "Homeland Security" even more so. I hope they realize that uniting 'Church and State' takes us steps closer to the 'God fearing' Islamic Terrorists Homeland Security was created to protect us from!!!

This law doesn't pertain to atheists in general. But I'm glad you're concerned about civil rights and freedom of thought. But....you forgot to add this other attack on civil rights and freedom of thought....

Actually, yes it does......at least according to the article and I didn't forget anything because the person who wants to jail Atheists and Agnostics is an EVANGELISTIC FUNDAMENTALIST who believes that everyone should believe as he does and has NO respect for the Constitution of this Country or the Religious freedoms of others!!!

Sorry you couldn't grasp that!!!

Oh and you are free to worship as you see fit, I'd be outraged if someone tried to jail you for your religious beliefs even though they differ from my own!!!

That article didn't go into detail:

In Kentucky, a law requires the state’s Office of Homeland Security to post a plaque recognizing the power of the Almighty God--and violating this law could result in 12 months in prison.

http://www.alternet.org/belief/year-jail-not-...

Basically this law implemented in 2006 is not for your average atheist on the street. I don't agree with the law, but it's specifically designed for Kentucky's Office of Homeland Security.

As far as jailing me for my religious beliefs, I don't think that's what the issue is about as far as the article I posted goes. I don't personally think such a thing is going to happen, but It's hard for me to imagine seeing some of the most beautiful sane people I know (and yes...I know sane beautiful non-believers as well) have to get treated for mental illness. And by the way, I do see references here at this forum that religious belief, or Christian ( or at least Christian fundamentalism) is a mental illness.

To embrace the absurd is a mental illness. Sounds reasonable.

..... All lawbreakers who were sentenced to serve a term or more in prison should be jailed, whether they are or are not citizens of your country and/or members of any belief system or none.
