"no religious test shall ever be required..."

A few days ago, I briefly mentioned the dispute over whether there is a moral principle behind the Constitution's religious test clause that should prompt voters to basically forgo direct consideration of a candidate's religious views in deciding whether to support that candidate. I made that mention in response to a Charles Krauthammer column in which he argues that there is. So I think I would be remiss if I didn't link to Christopher Hitchens' opposing treatment of the question, posted on Monday. I'd tell you who I think is more persuasive, but my insomnia just ran out of steam. More later.
