    Do they?

    How was it that California's anti gay marriage proposition, passed by a vote of the people, was declared invalid?

    Nice play on words but when you say other people are wrong you are wrong unless you can prove they are wrong. Nice play on words?

    Re: Appalling Discrimination against atheist?

    Discrimination or not I think it is very conceivable that it might be constitutional. There are requirements for people to hold offices, that the US founding fathers put into the US Constitution. I don't think it is right to ban Atheists from holding an office, but that should lie with in the States, or States should have to amend discriminations/ requirements to mirror the Federal Constitution requirements.

    I don't think it is constitutional per say, but states do have the rights to decide what standards they hold their representatives to. If those states believe that someone who is against the religion of the majority of the state wouldn't represent the best interest of that state and its people, then they have the right to set those regulations.

    States do have states rights but they are limited they can have standards but not if it violates rights and or AA/EEO, thats where the line is drawn.

    what if the state is mostly male, black, gay, republican should only male black gay republicans be able to run?
