Another affirmative-action category?

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles ) | Jan 20, 2004

In a Boston Globe op-ed, Cathy Young complains that agnostic politicians suffer discrimination.

(By "discrimination," what she means is that people don't vote for them.)

Coming soon, to a state near you: A federal judge will declare that henceforth, 5% of all elected officials must be agnostics. If the voters don't oblige, the court will appoint freethinkers to fill the quota.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
