Mark my words. ZERO people will spend a year in a Kentucky jail for failure to display this plaque on a Homeland security building. It's a pointless law that was a complete waste of time and tax dollars regardless of your religious or non-religious status.

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.
There is no doubt that many religious crazies in the world are far more dangerous, but it's highly hypocritical in this instance to be claiming America is so superior to others when you have laws allowing people to be locked up for not following the orders of a despotic religious loon.
