I live in North Carolina, which still has a line in the state constitution barring atheists (or, at least, so-called "strong atheists") from serving public office:

Disqualifications of office. The following persons shall be disqualified for office: First, any person who shall deny the being of Almighty God.

This may be overruled on a federal level, but it still makes me sick.
