One more reason not to live in Arkansas:

Article 19, section 1 of the Arkansas Constitution: Atheists disqualified from holding office or testifying as witness.

No person who denies the being of a God shall hold any office in the civil departments of this State, nor be competent to testify as a witness in any court.

Hooray, similar measures exist in South Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas. I'd suggest some charismatic unbelievers run for office and change the laws, but... well, yeah.

Do any states have laws that say you can't run for office or testify as a witness if you live your life according to the wishes of an invisible man who lives in the sky? No? Funny, that.
