So-called nones swayed election for Obama, but 7 US states still bar atheists from holding public office
Cenk Uygur gets Aggressive Progressive about the growing influence of people who are not affiliated with a specific religion — also known as “nones” — especially on President Obama’s re-election.
“They made all the difference in this election!” Cenk says. But atheists can still be executed in seven countries, and even in the U.S., seven states have constitutional provisions that ban atheists from holding public office. In Arkansas, they aren’t even allowed to testify in court.
