Let's have a religion test

Maureen Dowd of the New Orc Times seems to want a religion test for Vice President, at least according to the question she suggested Charlie Gibson should ask Sarah Palin:

Does she really think Adam, Eve, Satan and the dinosaurs mingled on the earth 5,000 years ago?
I think this is a wonderful idea. Joe Biden, after all, vehemently claims to be a devout Catholic. So let's ask him:
Do you really believe that when the Pope speaks ex cathedra that he is infallible? Do you really believe that everyone outside the Roman Catholic Church is cut off from salvation?
These would be equally valid questions ... which is probably why the founding fathers barred a religious test for public office in the Constitution. Do you think somebody should tell Maureen Dowd?
