Pennsylvania error? Hi there

I'm not American, so I just want to propose a change instead of just doing it (I don't feel qualified to mess with your law articles). It seems to me that the Pennsylvania constitution doesn't have a religious test as implied in the current article.

Article 1, section 4 in the Pennsylvania constitution reads:

"No person who acknowledges the being of a God and a future state of rewards and punishments shall, on account of his religious sentiments, be disqualified to hold any office or place of trust or profit under this Commonwealth."

It seems to me that this just says that believers shouldn't be disqualified from holding office (seems reasonable...) There is no discrimination against non-believers here.

If you agree, please correct the error.... someone.

yours
