What about freedom of religion?

Or the freedom to not have a religion?


I noticed that people commented on the thread about the pastor speaking out against non Chrisitans that he had a right to his religious views and his freedom of speech.  I wonder what those same people would say about these states which do not allow Atheists to hold office.  Do they not have a right to their own thoughts, religious affiliation (or non affiliation) and freedom of speech?

Where Atheists Can’t Hold Office

An Atheist in office would make a hell of a lot more sense in regards to thought process. They are not going to govern from voices in the head. They will use back to basics thought and problem solving. There's no emotion and no chance of damnation if he didn't do it in their version of their gods way.

I live in Texas that big ol' embarrasing state.

IF an atheist made it through the primaries, I would consider how/where he or she stood on the various issues per the Abigail Adams Project.  If his/her views lined up with mine, then I would certainly vote for that person.  Just like I do now.

 I generally don't care what their religious beliefs are as long as they don't govern according to them.

Haha everyone knows politicians aren't really believers. That said, even if they did disclose their beliefs, I wouldn't vote based on them.
