Arizona bill could prevent atheists from graduating high school



If House Bill 2467 becomes law, atheists would either not be allowed to graduate from high school, or atheists would need to lie in order to receive a high school diploma.

But, hey, let's face it... seems like a good way to keep your brightest young people from advancing in society. Wouldn't want to upset the status quo.

Seems like this is a non-issue being blown out of proportion by elitist atheists.

So, the words "so help me God" will also prevent atheists from being on a jury, or serve in public office.

Maybe it's for the best.


Seriously, you're retarded. No really. You have issues Rex. You really do.

That's a little misleading. It's an oath, not a sworn affidavit.

Last time I testified in court I had the option of skipping that swearing on a Bible part.

Doesn't matter if it's a requirement.

Well, last time I was on a jury we had to say those words. It's just an oath, and even if you don't believe in God, what does it really matter? This is pretty silly.

And you know the same isn't the case here how?

Or will be when/if it actually passes?

And I say this as an agnostic.

couldn't a simple change in the language at the end fix this issue. Isn't that what happens in a court of law when an ahtiest is on the witness stand you can't swear to God in court if you are an atheist but you have to swear to tell the truth.

Agreed. However, the general reaction by people in this thread makes me want to bang my head against a wall. If you can't see that this legislation is quite a bit more than just seriously flawed, then there is little hope for objective reasoning on this board.

I think the law is in reaction to the kids born here so are Americans in name, educated by American dollars, but their parents are illegals and they are of mixed "loyalty."

A LOT of those in the situation I described identify themselves as Mexican rather than American.
