States that "ban" Atheists from holding public office
This is one link that I found :
Here's exactly what Tennessee's constitution says:
Declaration of Rights
Section 4. That no political or religious test, other than an oath to support the Constitution of the United States and of this state, shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under this state.
BUT then it also says:
Section 2: No person who denies the being of God, or a future state of rewards and punishments, shall hold any office in the civil department of this state.
Article 19, § 1 of Arkansas's constitution provides:
No person who denies the being of a God shall hold any office in the civil departments of this State, nor be competent to testify as a witness in any court.
Article VI, § 2 of South Carolina's constitution says this:
No person who denies the existence of the Supreme Being shall hold any office under this Constitution.
"The following persons shall be disqualified for office: First, any person who shall deny the being of Almighty God...." Constitution Article 6 Section 8
"No religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office, or public trust, in this State; nor shall any one be excluded from holding office on account of his religious sentiments, provided he acknowledge the existence of a Supreme Being." Article 1 - Bill of Rights: Section 4
Double check that last sentence - contradictions ahoy!!
