The State of Kentucky’s Laws in the Year of Our Lord 2000

This was written a dozen years ago. At the turn of the century. My, how things have improved! We now have a law requiring citizens to acknowledge that the security of the Commonwealth cannot not be achieved without reliance on “Almighty God.”

Superstition is being taught as fact. Answers in Genesis’s Creation Museum is being praised by lawmakers. Freedom of religion is being understood as the rights of some to force their religion by law on others. You must come out if you do not believe. For your own safety’s sake.



Kentucky lawmakers have turned a mineral
Into Kentucky’s own official state rock
And they’ve made a rock our official mineral
And offered even more nonsense to mock

They want schools to teach the history of religion
And compare religions in tales and in song
So long as teachers made it very clear
That every religion but one is wrong

Female public nipples are to be covered
But a newly sought law will impale you
If you are a man who is seen out in public
While concealing discernibly turgid genitalia

Proffered law will let schools teach evolution
So long as teachers do not postulate
That humans came from something not living
Or evolved from animals into human state

Laws are sought to protect the civil rights
Of those who would have us publicly pray
And would let church and state discriminate
Against the godless and the gay

It’s desired we protect as fully human
Every fertilized egg and every fetus
Perhaps we need laws protecting humankind
To ban coitus incompletus

So see wisdom perish in Kentucky
Watch the retreat of common sense with awe
As these fools and their proposals
Create self-righteous stupid law

    Thanks for the sensible critique. Me & my cousin were just preparing to do a little research on this. We grabbed a book from our local library but I think I learned more from this post. I am very glad to see such fantastic information being shared freely out there…
