ban bans

I read today that Arkansas, Maryland, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Tennessee and Texas ban Atheists from serving in government.  Apparently that includes serving on a jury, or any public service.

This is allegedly current despite a Supreme Court ruling from 1961 that it is illegal to do so.  Not that something being illegal ever stopped anyone.

Tolerance, acceptance, detachment...I guess it's a learning process.  How would I know?


  1. Check out Bill Maher's movie, "Religious". It's funny and educational, at the same time, and makes a great case for being an atheist!

  2. Thx, always on the lookout for funny, but don't know if I can believe in atheism either, haha.
