Kentucky Has A Law That Pretty Much Says That If You Don't Believe In God Then You Will Be Thrown In Jail For 12 Months Because If You Don't Believe In God Then You Are A Threat To The Commonwealth Of The State.

Essentially What That Is Saying Is "We Are Going To Put You In Jail, Even Though You Haven't Done Anything Wrong, Just So We Can Keep You From Doing Something Wrong."

And What Makes This Worse Is That Christians Want To Complain About Being Persecuted. But They Are Not Being Persecuted. We Are Merely Criticizing Their Book And Their Actions. We Are Not Going Out And Taking Away Their Bibles Or Their Right To Worship At Their Church On Sundays Or Any Other Day. Telling Them To Keep Their "Intelligent Design" Out Of The Science Class Room Is Not Persecution.

As If Someone That Proclaimed To Be A Christian Never Committed Such Atrocities Such As Murder, Rape, And Theft.

I Just Find The Hypocrisy, The Intolerance, And The Stupidity Overwhelming.

for not putting a plaque

Who? Where? Isn't this saying that the "Executive Director" is responsible for this, who is a government employee? Not that this makes it any better I was just wondering if this was something everyone had to do. Very weird law.

For discussion:

The executive director shall:
(a) Publicize the findings of the General Assembly stressing the dependence on
Almighty God as being vital to the security of the Commonwealth by
including the provisions of KRS 39A.285(3) in its agency training and
educational materials. The executive director shall also be responsible for
prominently displaying a permanent plaque at the entrance to the state's
Emergency Operations Center stating the text of KRS 39A.285(3);

There are a number of sites related to this - it was first mooted in 2006.

First, let me say from experience that it's far better to be pissed off than pissed on. (I mentioned that to an angry police officer once, who really didn't see the humor --)

What is ACLU doing about this?

I googled "Kentucky law atheist sue" like Kris K suggested, and let me tell you, if you want HIGH comedy, check out the comments on the fourth hit, at Fox News Insider. Here's the link. Scroll down and prepare to be absolutely blown away by pure stupidity.

Surely it'll be knocked down in Federal Court. Lawsuits are the answer - make them spend money everytime they try to pull that kind of crap.

Spent one night in a dry county. I'm never going back. What is there to see in Kentucky, anyway? You can find horses in every state.
