Please join me to combat this! We MUST do something to fight this clear unconstitutional laws on the state constitutions! Organize a protest! A petition! File a Lawsuit! DO SOMETHING! If we work as a group we can overcome theocratic policies like this!
Before I begin let me site the 6th Article of The Constitution of the United States [which is widely held as the HIGHEST law in the land! - the constitution that is]:
" No religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States."
Now! Let's take a look at the states that violate the highest lawbook of the land!
[THESE ARE FROM THE STATE CONSTITUTIONS!]
ARKANSAS: "No person who denies the being of a God shall hold any office in the civil departments of this State, nor be competent to testify as a witness in any Court."
SOUTH CAROLINA: "Person denying existence of Supreme Being not to hold office. No person who denies the existence of the Supreme Being shall hold any office under this Constitution."
TENNESSEE: "No person who denies the being of God, or a future state of rewards and punishments, shall hold any office in the civil department of this state."
TEXAS: "The Bill of Rights last amended on September 13, 2003 states that an official may be excluded from holding office if she/he does not acknowledge the existence of a Supreme Being."
MARYLAND: "That as it is the duty of every man to worship God in such manner as he thinks most acceptable to Him, all persons are equally entitled to protection in their religious liberty� provided, he believes in the existence of God, and that under His dispensation such person will be held morally accountable for his acts, and be rewarded or punished therefore either in this world or in the world to come.That no religious test ought ever to be required as a qualification for any office of profit or trust in this State, other than a declaration of belief in the existence of God."
MISSISSIPPI: "No person who denies the existence of a Supreme Being shall hold any office in this state."
