    Does article 6 section 3 of the constitution not apply to the 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.

    In most of those states, it might be on the books but it would never hit the courts. The only reason it's still on the books is because it has never been challenged in court and forcibly removed. It's just an artifact of Christian hatred, nothing more.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Pre 14th amendment he is correct. The BOR only applied to the federal initially. The only time the federal is supreme under proper constitution to this day is if they have an enumerated power, however, the fourtheenth bound the states to the BOR so the state laws would violate the first amendment without question.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Re: Appalling Discrimination against atheist?

    I didn't vote in the poll because I'm not sure any of those apply to me.

    Personally I would want a person representing me to be of like-mind and conscience.

    An Atheist wouldn't come close to that description.

    But like I said before, most Pols lie.

    Perhaps the civil war would have better served us all if it was fought to free the ignorant...from their ignorance, bigotries, and prejudices.

    But you wouldn't give me the same consideration then? What if I think a theist could never come close to being of like-mind and conscience? I can't have the same type of representation you demand for yourself?

    where would they fall short


    to me religion is meaningless in a candidate unless i thought it got in the way. If i agree with him on the issues religion can only make me doubt him instead of have faith.

    what i mean by that is the more religious a person might be the more they might care less about the constitution and the rights of ALL Americans. That would make for the worst candidate ever.

    I myself am religion but my religion would never effect me in that way if i held an office it would only steer me personally.

    I think you must be confused. Never said such a thing.
