An Interesting “Religious Tests” Provision In The Texas Constitution’s “Bill of Rights”


Is it just The Juice, or do you also find it ironic that this provision is in the Texas Constitution’s Bill of Rights? Here she goes:

Sec. 4.  RELIGIOUS TESTS. No religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office, or public trust, in this State; nor shall any one be excluded from holding office on account of his religious sentiments, provided he acknowledge the existence of a Supreme Being.

Oh, so you’re religion doesn’t matter … as long as you have one. Whew. For a minute there, it seemed like this dang provision just didn’t belong in the “Bill of Rights.” Here’s a link to the text.
