CHART OF THE DAY….Via The Pew Forum On Religion & Public Life, here’s the makeup of the 111th Congress. Note that the number of Americans who lack affiliation with any church is about 48 million or so. The number of members of Congress who are willing to admit lack of same is:
zeroone*. Apparently Rick Warren speaks for great big chunks of America when he says, “I could not vote for an atheist.”
*Apparently Pete Stark came out of the closet earlier this year.
Of course, “willing to admit non-affiliation” and “non-affiliation” aren’t quite the same thing…
