Apparently North Carolina (among other states) has a law that requires a belief "in Almighty God" to hold office. So a local man is threatening to sue his city for swearing in the man who won election to city council because he is an atheist.

"Reality has a well known liberal bias" - Stephan Colbert

O Lord Lead me from the unreal to the real.
Lead me from the darkness to light.
Lead me from death to immortality.
May there be peace, peace, and perfect peace.

Wow, what a waste of time, money, and resources this will be for a case that was settled in 1961.
