North Carolina to bar elected official due to his beliefs

http://www.citizen-times.com/article/20091208/NEWS01/912080327

I was amazed to read this, as I didn't realize that my state still had laws like this. I am glad that they are deciding to fight this, but requiring a majority vote here to change the law, will be a very tough fight.

Yeah, there are a few states left that have this in their constitution, despite the Supreme Court having declared such laws unconstitutional decades ago.
I would happily move to every state with it still on the books...run for office and then challenge it in court.
Now if I just had money to survive on while doing so.........
Yes, yes, people who don't believe in magical beings should never be in positions of important decision making. Riiiiiiight...
Cecil Bothwell was affirmed into office today without an issue.
