Find an Atheist, Get $1000

Or to be more precise, a nontheist. But there's a catch: it can't be just any old nontheist:

The Secular Coalition for America (SCA) will award one thousand dollars ($1,000) to the person who identifies the highest level atheist, humanist, freethinker or other nontheist currently holding elected public office in the United States of America.

Is religion a de facto requirement for public office? An interesting find from Blogesque.

Did they ever define "Freethinker"? I skimmed over the terms of the contract and it wasn't explicit.

If it's as defined by the office holder, theoretically W himself could claim, "I think freely, therefore..."
