I never ceased to be surprised by the level of bigotry that comes from our own elected leaders. Like, a council member in Jacksonville voting against a professor to sit on a human rights board because he's Muslim. Oh, and is "not sure" if Muslims should even be allowed to hold an office.
And, based on the interview, maybe never should gays. Probably not atheists. I wonder if there's a list of the "right" religions that should be allowed to hold office. Because when the US Constitution says there should be no religious test - well, they didn't *mean* it, right?
