Atheist group takes on Mississippi's Constitution

Mississippi is among seven states being asked to change it's constitution by a group of atheists.

Freedom from Religion advocates want the state to remove provisions from the constitution prohibiting people who don't believe in God from holding public office. The Supreme Court struck down such restrictions in 1961.

The Openly Secular Coalition based in Columbus, Ohio is targeting Mississippi, Arkansas, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas.
