Homeland Security In Kentucky

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — A lawmaker says the state’s Homeland Security office should be crediting God with keeping the state safe.

State Rep. Tom Riner, a Southern Baptist minister who was instrumental in establishing that requirement in 2006, disapproves of the fact that Homeland Security doesn’t currently mention God in its mission statement or on its Web site.

The law passed under former Gov. Ernie Fletcher, who prominently credited God in annual reports to state leaders. But Gov. Steve Beshear’s administration didn’t credit God in its 2008 Homeland Security report issued last month.

“We certainly expect it to be there, of course,” Riner, D-Louisville, told the Lexington Herald-Leader.

The law that organized the Homeland Security office first lists Homeland Security’s duty to recognize that government itself can’t secure the state without God, even before mentioning other duties, which include distributing millions of dollars in federal grants and analyzing possible threats.

The religious language was tucked into a floor amendment by Riner and passed the General Assembly overwhelmingly. It lists the office’s initial duty as “stressing the dependence on Almighty God as being vital to the security of the Commonwealth.”  [Rest of article]

Loved it, loved it, loved it!  Out on DVD.  Sweet little romance made for a buck ninety-eight with two very appealing leads who have never acted before, improvised much of the movie, and together wrote this wonderful song which won the Oscar for Best Original Song last year:
