As near as I can tell, after over 200 years Congress has its first representative who doesn't believe in God. I have heard Christian parents tell me they have heard of Christian children being discriminated against in school and I want to pin them to the wall and ask if they can imagine what it is like for a non-Christian to attend American schools.
"NONTHEISTIC Americans, including humanists, are the group most likely to be discriminated against for their convictions," said Fred Edwords, director of communications for the American Humanist Association. "Recent polls show that fewer than 50 percent of Americans would vote for an atheist presidential candidate, even if that candidate is well qualified. The fact that Pete Stark's public avowal of nontheism is controversial reinforces this point. Atheists are the last group that a majority of Americans still think is okay to discriminate against."I am a Universalist of the UU denomination. That means I believe in God depending on how you define God. Give me a definition of God and I'll see if I can believe in it.
