Religious Tolerance in Texas

I remember noticing this a couple of years ago, but I'd forgotten it until recently. Here's §4 of the Texas Bill of Rights:
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.
No commentary needed.


  1. Well, that lets out Texas as a potential starting stage for my political career, then.

    Seriously, what century are we in? People need to get over it.

  2. yeah, its kinda funny isn't it. very stubborn people, us texans.
