It’s sad how little has changed since then regarding atheists in Congress.
What are the religious affiliations of members of the 114th Congress?
Pretty similar to the American public — Overwhelmingly Christian (491 members, 92%) with a spattering of Jews (28, 5%), Muslims (2, 0.4%), Buddhists (2, 0.4%), and other faiths.
But there’s a striking disparity in one category…
The “Unaffiliated.” We’re 20% of the country and 0.2% of Congress with a single representative.
