I know the chance of an atheist getting elected to a government position is about as slim a minority getting elected to a major government positon, but at least the minority CAN get elected. In some state constitutions atheists can not hold government positions. I believe that, though it is not a direct breach of the first amendmant should be changed so that atheists may not be restricted based only on the fact that they do not believe in a god.
The first amendment states: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof
I believe that this should be changed so atheists may not be descriminated agaisnt legally. After do atheists not deserve the same right as witchs and satanists? I believe atheists deserve the same rights as everyone else, even if it means striking the words "under god" from everything related to the US Government.
It is clear the Bill of Rights does not protect atheists, but does that not violate the idea of America being the land of religious freedom and tolerance?
