What states only allowed Christians to vote?
No complaint on these actions ever grom the federal government.

In the very beginning, as the states were pulling themselves together, and forming their "more perfect union," yes, many earlier laws on RELIGIOUS voting restrictions STILL existed in various states.
But let's all remember, there were far FEWER states in those days.---and far fewer people, and even far fewer DIVERSE people......
You're making it sound in your other comments, like this was widespread, "all across America"....... (an "America" that didn't exist yet, state wise)
And all these archaic, various laws, from different states were corrected and put to REST by the 1792 Constitution, which was drafted to INCLUDE Article VI, Clause 3 -
The No Religious Test Clause of the United States Constitution is a clause within Article VI, Clause 3. By its plain terms, no federal officeholder or employee can be required to adhere to or accept any particular religion or doctrine as a prerequisite to holding a federal office or a federal government job.
It was a case of live and learn, and they learned, and continued working on their "more perfect union".

The U.S. Constitution is a secular document. It begins, "We the people," and contains no mention of "God" or "Christianity." Its only references to religion are exclusionary, such as, "no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust" (Art. VI), and "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof" (First Amendment). The presidential oath of office, the only oath detailed in the Constitution, does not contain the phrase "so help me God" or any requirement to swear on a bible (Art. II, Sec. 1, Clause 8).
If you are so UNCHRISTIAN and UNAMERICAN you cannot stand living in a democracy with all it’s hard won freedoms, Constitution and human rights why have you not emigrated to North Korea?!
Thankfully Federal Law bars people like yourself with extremist religious views from the military and several Federal jobs and any form of security clearance!
The NSA monitors all posts so should have identified you and passed your details to the relevant Federal Agencies!
Employers now check the social media of applicants so you could be making you unemployable!!!!!!
Do please have the courage to say what you say here in public so that everyone that knows you can see you for the TRAITOR you are!!!!

No states only allow Christians to vote. Christians are allowed to do everything anyone else can do.

After a relatively brief online search
I find no case since the founding of the U.S.
I only find cases of religious restrictions to holding public office
not to voting.
I find this:
- By 1790, all states had eliminated religious requirements for voting.
which SUGGESTS that before 1790 at least one state had a religious requirement or restriction for voting.

There was no complaint from the federal government because no state ever allowed only Christians to vote.

No such state exists, at least not in the United States.
