Murray, KY – A group of Atheists filed suit against the state of Kentucky Tuesday to remove God from the Homeland Security detail. The Associated Press reports the group protested a 2006 law emphasizing God's role in protecting the state.

The group has not specified the financial damages and legal fees it seeks by filing suit.
