Herb Silverman's application to be a notary public is denied because he crossed out "God" on the form, not because he doesn't believe in God. At least, that's what Brad Waring, a lawyer for the state of South Carolina tells the state's Supreme Court.

Herb Silverman has challenged the requirement that in the state constitution that all state officials have to believe in God and take an oath that ends "so help me God."

Edmund Robinson, Herb Silverman's lawyer, says that this argument is nonsense:

"His was the only one out of 30,000 that was rejected. And this is the only one the Governor's Office has ever sent back to anyone."
