Mississippi Code, Article 14, Section 265:
No person who denies the existence of a Supreme Being shall hold any office in this state.This is what discrimination looks like, and it is right there in our state law for all to see.
I'm not sure if this section of our state law would be enforced if an atheist could somehow be elected. That really isn't the point. The point is that it is part of our state law today, and that is unacceptable.
This is a church-state issue, but it is also a fundamental civil rights issue. Atheists do not have equal rights under the law in Mississippi today.
