Scope

The 116th Congress may be the most diverse in history, notably including the first two Muslim women to ever serve in the House of Representatives, but there is only a single religiously unaffiliated member – an imbalanced reflection of the American people given that 26% claim to be atheist, agnostic or ‘nothing in particular’. [1][2] Indeed, while 65% of adults describe themselves as Christian, participation in congregational worship is far less central to many citizens’ faith than it once was. [2] A Gallup poll found that just 50% of Americans reported belonging to a church, synagogue, or mosque in 2018, down from an average of 68% between the 1970s and 1990s.
