We have an Atheist Member of Congress

As I’ve posted on atheism a couple of times, this news caught my eye.  A California congressman has identified himself as an atheist, a "Unitarian who does not believe in a supreme being."  He is the fourth public official in the United States to identify himself as atheist.  The other three are a California school board president, a Maine school
committee member and a Massachusetts town meeting member.  They are all awfully brave considering that most Americans would vote for a Catholic, black, Jewish, woman, or homosexual before they would vote for an atheist for president!
