In a stunning move, the Almighty Creator of the Universe broke His millennia-old silence to speak out against a piece of Kentucky legislation that appears to require Him to protect their state.
At issue is a 2006 law which states that the state Office of Homeland Security’s initial duty is “stressing the dependence on Almighty God as being vital to the security of the Commonwealth.” In addition, the legislation requires the posting of a plaque at the entrance to the state Emergency Operations Center that begins, “The safety and security of the Commonwealth cannot be achieved apart from reliance upon Almighty God.”
When asked for comment, God replied, “Well, seeing as I’m omnipotent, I was already protecting them. But to require me to protect them by legislation? Who do they think they are? I created them. They’ve got some nerve thinking they can tell me what to do.”
Ironically, the Almighty supports the actions of the American Atheists in their attempt to remove references to Him from the legislation. “While I obviously take issue with their belief that I don’t exist,” God stated, ” I appreciate their efforts to take my name off this ridiculous law.
“After all, if a terrorist attack were to happen in Kentucky, I could technically be charged with breaking the law. I’m too busy with, you know, keeping the universe running – I don’t want to get bogged down in a lawsuit. Especially in Kentucky.”
