A New (Unconstitutional) Religious Test for a Presidential Appointee?

From Paul Weyrich and Town Hall. 

“Radical homosexual activists are at it again. They have condemned President George W. Bush’s nomination of Dr. James W. Holsinger, Jr. for the post of United States Surgeon General.

According to Article VI of the United States Constitution, “…no religious test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or Public trust under the United States.” The only requirement for public officials is that they pledge to uphold the Constitution.
