    Then you have no reason to oppose it, nor do you have argument as to how it will infringe upon your rights.

    First off this isn't about my rights or my opposing it, I'm not in any of those states and personally I could give a crap if an atheist runs for office in Idaho. I'm just arguing the issue on its merits. Do THOSE people in THOSE states have a right to demand their politicians are not atheist, that was the OP and I answered it.

    They have the right to not vote for an atheist, they have no right to bar an atheist from running.

    Actually they do have the right to stop an atheist from running, you just don't like it. To bad so sad, write your congressman and get him to author a new law.

    Show us, because you are incorrect. There is no religious test allowed for Public office.

    No dice, you have to prove they can't do it, where is the law that says they can't? There are laws that say what you can't do not what you can do so put up or shut up.

    No wonder you were afraid to post it, that is about federal politicians not state, we already discussed that.
