Attorney General's Office Appeals "God" Ruling
By Angela Hatton
Frankfort, KY – Kentucky officials intend to fight to keep "Almighty God" in a law that created the Kentucky Office of Homeland Security. The attorney general's office plans to appeal a judge's ruling that found the God reference unconstitutional. Spokeswoman Shelley Johnson says state lawyers will file a notice of appeal today. Johnson says they also will ask for a stay so that the language can remain in the law pending the outcome of the appeal. American Atheists Inc. filed suit to have the reference to God removed. The group also objected to a requirement that a plaque be placed at the entrance to the state's Emergency Operations Center in Frankfort that said, "the safety and security of the Commonwealth cannot be achieved apart from reliance upon Almighty God."
