Fun Fact About Mississippi Constitution

I wonder what tea party members of Congress, whom profess to love the U.S. Constitution, think about Section 265 of the Mississippi constitution.

Text of Section 265:

Denial of Supreme Being Disqualification to Hold Office

No person who denies the existence of a Supreme Being shall hold any office in this state.

If you don't believe in God then you either lie or need not run for elected office.

That kind of runs into issues with Article VI, paragraph 3 of the US Constitution doesn't it?

But I'm sure the tea party would think their way around that. If they don't just decide to ignore it completely.
