I find it interesting that the NC Constitution (Article 6, Section 8) disqualifies from office "...any person who shall deny the being of Almighty God". This and similar constitutional provisions in various states were "nullified" in 1961 by the U.S. Supreme Court. As such, NC has never been allowed to enforce it. However, despite ample opportunities to remove this "disqualification," NC has refused (the NC constitution was revised numerous times in the 1960s and 1970s, but article 6, section 8 remained untouched). In order to amend the constitution, NC voters must approve it, and a constitutional amendment can only go to the voters if 60% of the NC legislatures agree to it. I am wondering if we, as a united group of NC citizens, are interested in creating a movement to repeal Article 6, section 8. If we can find a friendly "soul" :-) in the NC legislature to support our cause, it would be interesting to see our elected officials go on record as supporting or not this repeal. I think it would make for interesting discussion around the state. Thoughts?
