Idiot America: People who prefer reality instead of childish fantasies are not allowed to be a politician in 7 states. The stupidity, it burns.

The US maintains the separation of church and state, but some states have attempted to circumvent the law by requiring candidates to at least believe in God.

Texas bans religious tests as a qualification to hold office, but requires an official to "acknowledge the existence of a Supreme Being", according to its Constitution's Article-I Bill of Rights.

Tennessee also upholds a similar law, banning any person who denies a supreme being from holding office in the state's civil department. Other states with similar laws include South Carolina, North Carolina, Mississippi, Maryland and Arkansas.
