    again if a person has the same political views as you and cares about the constitution and rights of Americans this doesnt happen.
    To be able to practice my religion or lack there of, without interference from the government. The government must remain neutral. (barring practices that may violate certain laws)

    How many current Atheist to you believe had some sort of religious upbringing? Just wondering where they received guidelines for their morality? It's not something you are born with.

    This thread has been settled, apparently a court case ended these laws years ago. They are still on the states books I guess kind of like laws against spitting on the street but they are not enforced, the whole thread was bogus from the start.

    Well there you go, people can not vote for atheists all they want but you can't bar them from participation in their own government. Proper.

    Haven't you heard, your threads over, the premise was bogus from the start. Those laws are not enforced and have been declared illegal. Next time do some better research before you start a worthless thread.

    i think constitutions are great in idea and concept but they could be good or bad depending on whats in them, enforcement, ability to change and or amend.

    When a constitution establishes the basics i think they are awesome especially in a "free" country.

A lot more of us are atheist/agnostic (they are different) and the ones that are religious are a lot more accepting of people who aren't IMO.
    I agree just still surprised they ever existed. I like the idea someone else had that all laws etc should be reviewed every 25 years or so.
