An Atheist runs for congress

From Staks Rosch at the Philadelphia Atheism Examiner

Democratic challenger Dr. Wynne LeGrow has issued the following statement:

"Article VI of the Constitution states that 'No religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.' My name is Wynne LeGrow. I am the Democratic nominee for US House of Representatives in Virginia's fourth congressional district. And I am a non-believer.”

It is a rare thing to see an Atheist run for office. I don’t know his politics, but I plan to remedy that soon. His political website has more information.  And, he is on twitter.
