I'm An Illegal Alien

I love this statement.
"I strongly believe that ANY governing body should remove itself from religious faculties. Im not saying that members of government cant be religious but it should not be in any government doctrine nor should they manifest it as law to the broader public. I dont know if any of you may know this but in the state of Texas USA it is technically illegal for an atheist to hold any form of public office. Why is it that in this day and age where ones beliefs and creed is to be highly regarded is it so plainly obvious that one who chooses not to subscribe to any man made belief system is still marginalised?
My favourite argument is the one of moral code, that should one not subscribe to a system of faith that they are therefore immoral and dubious. My argument is that morality comes from reason and not divinity. I still choose to donate to charity, I have respect for my fellow man, I know not to steal, rape or kill and thats more than I can say for how religion has portrayed itself in history. How many acts of violence have been committed in the name of some benevolent god? How many people have been marred, tortured and yes MURDERED because they choose a different path to yours? Because at the end of the day it all boils down to my god is better than your god, doesnt it?"
