On the requirement that Almighty God must be acknowledged by atheists in the State of Kentucky

According to Alter Net , Kentucky law states: “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.”

And in an affront to the Glory of Lord God Almighty, according to the Digital Journal, American Atheists have submitted a petition to the U.S. Supreme Court in a bid to overturn a Kentucky homeland security law which can send atheists to jail for up to 12 months for refusing to acknowledge “Almighty God.”

A couple of questions immediately arose in my mind: 1) How can the Authorities of Kentucky know that God is offended by atheists who do not acknowledge him and 2) How can they know that God requires the offending atheists to be jailed?

It seems to me there is a way out of the impasse that is fair to all parties and will ensure that we all know what God wants.

Obviously, there is another consideration to be taken into account once we find out what God wants if the legal system is to be fair to God and that is to ensure that God is given an appropriate monetary award for the losses he incurs by being called to attend the courts by the Authorities of Kentucky. This, of course, must be paid in full by atheists once the case is proved. However, we must also be fair to the atheists accused of offending God in the unlikely possibility the case is not proven.

That said:

“Therefore it is required that the Authorities of Kentucky must instruct lawyers to issue a subpoena requiring that God attend the court in person to explain why He is offended when atheists do not worship and acknowledge Him. God must also declare any financial loss He suffers each time an atheist does not show due deference. God must also declare the substantial financial loss He suffers each time he is required to attend the court. Further to these requirements and demands, in the interests of fairness and love, each time God does not attend court substantial damages must be paid to the accused atheists and a fine levied against those who have claimed to speak for God for failing to ensure that He attended the court as required.”

Obviously, lawyers would need to ensure the wording meets all the requirements of law but I can see no reason why a fair and loving God would not agree to it.
