Default Restore the right of Atheists to hold public office in seven states of the U.S.

In 2016, open legal discrimination against non-believers is not common in Western countries. Yet, seven US state constitutions, namely that of Arkansas, Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas, still have discriminatory laws in their articles that prohibit people that do not believe in God from holding public office.

These obsolete laws continue to exist although being unconstitutional and deny the freedom of religion not only to Atheists, but Agnostics, Humanists, Freethinkers and other Non-theists alike.

Please show your solidarity and sign the following petition to put pressure on the state legislatures to adopt rules that ensure equal access for all citizens and accept personal beliefs!

This is the link to the petition:

Thanks for your attention,
