NC town attempts to depose City Council member due to non-belief
This is old news, but I hadn't seen it posted here. It seems Asheville still thinks it's 1309, not 2009.
"ASHEVILLE — North Carolina's constitution is clear: politicians who deny the existence of God are barred from holding office.
Opponents of Cecil Bothwell are seizing on that law to argue he should not be seated as a City Council member today, even though federal courts have ruled religious tests for public office are unlawful under the U.S. Constitution."
:blush: I really do know how to spell constitution, I promise
And, a poll comith.
