Example of Right Wing Discrimination

Here’s a fact that surprises even me!

In the states of Arkansas, Mississippi, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas atheists are prohibited by the state constitutions from holding public office.  In the states of Maryland and Arkansas atheists are prohibited by the constitutions from giving testimony in court.

Don’t believe me?  Check HERE.  And a dozen other references on the Web.

Now, my guess is that this is not enforced very strictly, but still…

This is an example of far right political thought, which holds freedom as it’s highest ideal, …as long as you agree with their ideas.
