I see this as a very good step in the right direction. Still small potatoes though.

Kyrsten Sinema is the only one who is "openly" atheist. Most of the rest are probably religious but didn't want to share, which is still an improvement because it means they probably understand the first amendment.

It would be nice if being openly irreligious weren't political suicide in most parts.

No members of our government should have religion influence their decisions, since they would only be governing for those who agree with them, instead of everyone. Sadly, that's never going to happen, so in the words of Clayton Williams, I'll just have to relax and enjoy it.
