First Freedom First: A Citizen's Guide to Protecting Religious Liberty and the Separation of Church and State

by Rev. Dr. C. Welton Gaddy and Rev. Barry W. Lynn, preface by Andrew S. Grove
Beacon Press, Boston, 2008

On page 159 (in the context of discussing prejudice against those who choose not to worship a deity): "To date, only one elected member of Congress, Representative Pete Stark (D-CA), has been willing to publicly announce that he does not hold a belief in a supreme being. Stark was joined by a state representative in Wisconsin and a few local officeholders in identifying themselves as nontheistic after the Secular Coalition for America announced it was trying to find an open nonbeliever who held public office."

On pages 157-158, Secular Coalition President Herb Silverman's fight against religious test for public office in South Carolina is recounted: "Torcaso [a 1961 Supreme Court case out of Maryland] should have settled the matter, but in 1990, Herb Silverman, a professor of mathematics in South Carolina and an atheist, had to go to state court to challenge that state's bar on nonbelievers holding public office...South Carolina's provision was very straightforward in its bigotry. It declared, 'No person who denies the existence of a Supreme Being shall hold any office under this Constitution.' Silverman applied to become a notary public to test the measure and won a unanimous ruling from the South Carolina Supreme Court."Encountering Naturalism, A Worldview and Its Uses
