The voters have decided that AtheisticMystic is right! Vote on the post to say if you agree or disagree.

This is one of the reasons why religion and government should be kept separate.

@Jonesy Its not like their monsters... its just a belief.

Pretty sure she's saying she can't believe it's illegal for atheists to hold public office in some places, not that there are atheists.

And in the states that they can hold office, many people won't vote for them solely because they are an atheist.

Do they actually ask people what their religion is? If they do then that's a bit stupid...

None of these laws are actually used in practice anymore. Some of them might still be written in the books but if someone were to challenge the law it would be taken to the state or supreme court and removed. That's how US laws work - many of them are unconstitutional, but until someone bothers to challenge them they remain.

Wait, what the fuck? I'm a Christian and this pisses me off.

I find it really sad that someone could no way this.

No it's not. It's the christian majority, but that does not mean it's a Christian nation. It's a secular government with freedom of and from religion.

I'm definitely a Christian, but you can't say that people who aren't Christians can't hold office...that's the type of judging and hateful speech that gives the rest of us a bad name.

@This is a Christian nation you know...

Please, explain then why we have seperation of church and state.
