Atheist? Can't Hold Public Office in NC

I had no idea, but apparently in North Carolina, you cannot hold public office if you are an atheist:

North Carolina State Constitution, Article VI, Section 8:

Sec. 8. Disqualifications for office. The following persons shall be disqualified for office:
First, any person who shall deny the being of Almighty God

This is also true in Arkansas, Maryland, Mississippi, South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas.

Wow.

That is sickening. This just proves the hate and repression that theists (specifically christians) have against atheists and it is just sickening
