"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

In another thread a while back, the issue was whether or not there should be a "religious test" for public office.

I believe the Constitution as written prohibits this -- but it was also written by men who at the time of the writing, never dreamed that muslims would actually -hold- political office and judgeships in any numbers, if at all.

I argued that religious tests have become necessary, regardless of the error in the Constitution (aside: I would argue that slavery was completely legal and Consitutional for seven decades. What was done about that?).

All you need to do is read the headline above to understand WHY such tests are now needed and appropriate in America and the rest of The West.

Are these the Islamic "moderates" we hear so much about?
