ReligiousTolerance.Org Sides with American Atheists


The First Amendment

The First Amendment

The website ReligiousTolerance.Org has a history of the American Atheist suit against the KY Homeland Security law. The site provides background information, links to media sources, and some analysis, including the following quote:

These laws are obviously in conflict with the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, and thus are unconstitutional. It has the state teaching not only that God exists, but that it is Yahweh mentioned in the Bible. During their oath of office, each of the legislators promised to follow the state and federal Constitutions. However, there were apparently sufficient legislators willing to violate their oath of office and pass the bill.

The website quotes Edwin Kagin, the National Legal Director for American Atheists, Ed Buckner, former American Atheists President, and State Rep. Tom Riner (D-Louisville), who is also a Baptist minister.
