Do you have a church home?

Posted By on Sun, Feb 1, 2009 at 7:34 AM

A report on the intertwining of church and state in Arkansas:

* Its unconstitutional state Constitution -- atheists are theoretically prohibited from holding public office.

* The legislature's past refusal to endorse the principle of separation of church and state.

* The quaint habit -- oft remarked by outsiders who encounter it -- of including religious preference in legislative biographies. (Since you asked: I was raised Methodist, now a member of a Presbyterian Church. Always try to attend on Easter.)
