Pew reports, 'Christians overrepresented in Congress'
The new Congress that was sworn in Thursday afternoon is significantly more religious and Christian than the nation it represents, according to an analysis of religions claimed by House and Senate members.
Most notable, while 23 percent of the nation claims to be unaffiliated, atheist, or simply "none," there is just one member of that group. Arizona Democratic Sen. Kyrsten Sinema said that she is religiously unaffiliated, said the analysis from the Pew Research Center.
This superabundance of Christians in positions of leadership must account for the proliferation of God-honoring laws in America in recent years, not to mention the overall tendency towards more and more righteousness both in and out of government. Yeah, right.
Oâ how the difference & reflection of those who know that their only reason why so, they have tasted the sweet life changing nectar of regeneration through reconciliation. Is from up above alone, especially when one is reflecting on they are equally worthy to be still in their trespasses & sin if it hadnât been of the Lord alone, first seeking them out first amen!; 1 Cor 4:7.
As God hates boasting of self-righteousness through arrogance of pride. As one who doesnât Possess Christ, one is truly Bankrupt & hopeless of cleansing themselves by their best efforts ever; Pro 20:9!
Gal 6:14 But far be it from me to boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world has been crucified to me, & I to the world.
Luke 22:23-27 They began to question among themselves, which of them it was who would do this thing. There arose also a contention among them, which of them was considered to be greatest. He said to them, âThe kings of the nations lord it over them, and those who have authority over them are called âbenefactors.â But not so with you. But one who is the greater among you, let him become as the younger, and one who is governing, as one who serves. For who is greater, one who sits at the table, or one who serves? Isnât it he who sits at the table? But I am in your midst as one who serves.
All the Catholics are Catholic and not Christian by the way. No doubt there are quite a few other hypocrites who are calling themselves Christian and aren't đ
Probably all the commenters here will say that Christians are under-represented, though not for some of the reasons that should be stated such as the desire for power and to lord over people.
Sounds like they are practicing pattern recognition. Maybe they should turn their attention on professional sports. No women play in the NBA--isn't that discriminatory? No women play baseball in the minor or major leagues--isn't that discriminatory? Not many Hispanics or Asians play in the NFL--isn't that discriminatory? And when I watch the local news, it was about 2 black women robbing a white guy of his Rolex watch, 4 black youths breaking into a jewelry store in a mall, so that sounds like a pattern.
