The Religious Makeup of the 114th Congress: Only One Member is a “None” and Even She Won’t Call Herself an Atheist
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.
Because the biggest problem with out nation is that it’s not religious enough, Winfield, Alabama Mayor Randy Price (below) requested that the local city council make amends on that front.
