Quick update on the story: Some people on this blog and others were wondering why the congressperson was coming out as a “nontheist” instead of an “atheist”…
According to the Secular Coalition for America‘s lobbyist, Lori Lipman Brown:
His staffers say he does not identify as an “atheist”
So we can lay that to rest. It doesn’t give us any clue as to what the congressperson does identify with, but it’s not atheism.
