Atheists Sue to Remove God from Homeland Security

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. They particularly objected to a clause requiring the Office of Homeland Security to hang a plaque proclaiming the safety of the state -quote-"cannot be achieved apart from reliance upon Almighty God." The group has not specified the financial damages and legal fees it seeks by filing suit.
