The title is very misleading. It's not a year in jail for "not believing in God" at all. It's a year in jail if someone doesn't put up a plaque.
It's still silly and unenforceable, no doubt, but you could be more accurate when complaining about it.
Not necessarily misleading..
If, say, someone doesnt put the plaque up because of their non-belief in God, they could face jail time of 12 months.. whats so misleading about that?
And why is it not enforcable? Its a law right? They have stated what the punishment will be.....?
Eitherway, the main point is the fact that the fed is forcing citizens (I.E. taxpayers who PAY for these homeland security buildings) to put a plaque
in front saying that belief in God is the way to keep the nation safe..... seems forced, unfair and ridiculous to push an agenda.. and for what!? Is
god actually going to protect the nation just because there is a plaque out front? Gimem a break.. its such BS and a waste of time and money that will
no doubt cause lawsuits and pissed off people.
I completely agree with you that this law is ridiculous on many levels, including its intent, its content, and the fact that it is unenforceable.
It's unenforceable because it doesn't specify any individual is responsible for putting up a plaque. And it's not questioning belief at all; it
does not address belief; it addresses physically putting up a plaque.
I'd absolutely love to see someone brought up on charges with this law. It has about as much chance of standing as the 3 year old who got a $1500
ticket because he peed on his own lawn. That's "the law" too: Indecent exposure is well established law, in fact. But the ticket was cancelled and
the police officer who gave it was fired. In any case, it's uo to the people of Kentucky to take it on.
