I don't understand what you guys are arguing about. He didn't like the law and wanted to change it. His lawyer friend informed him that in order to sue he would have to run for office so that he would have standing in a court of law. He ran, not to become governor, but to have the law overturned, which is what Michael has been saying. Once the law was overturned, he hoped a more serious atheist candidate could run and perhaps win (think about Obama here). It might be 50 years before this happens in SC, but who knows?
