Kentucky Hates The Constitution And Freedom

I wish that title were hyperbole, but I don't know how else to phrase it when a state makes a particular set of religious views illegal.
“The safety and security of the Commonwealth cannot be achieved apart from reliance upon Almighty God as set forth in the public speeches and proclamations of American Presidents, including Abraham Lincoln’s historic March 30, 1863, presidential proclamation urging Americans to pray and fast during one of the most dangerous hours in American history, and the text of President John F. Kennedy’s November 22, 1963, national security speech which concluded: ‘For as was written long ago: Except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.’
That's an actual law in The United States of America.  How low have we fallen that such thing can become law at all.  How much further have we fallen that it's been allowed to stand for 6 years?

And on top of that, we've reached a place where the article about it asks,
What do you think about the Kentucky law? Do you think atheists should go to jail for not believing in the security of God?
What do you think I think?  It's a travesty.  It's a travesty that it's a law at all.  And it's a disgrace that it's been there so long, and has a real chance of being upheld by our conservative Supreme Court.  The authors of that law have betrayed the spirit of religious freedom that was fundamental to this nation's founding.

They might as well drive to Washington, DC and take a shit directly on the Constitution.  That's what I think about that Kentucky Law.
