I was on a friend’s Facebook page and saw this photo. There are seven states in which atheists can’t run for public office. Now, having a degree in history and political science, I know this is a bunch of caca. Article four, paragraph three of the Constitution clearly states,
“The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.”
So the idea that these state laws can actually be enforced isn’t true. Some of these seven states don’t even have such laws on their books. I just find it funny how things like this spread around so fast.
