I belong to the Secular Coalition for America and this arrived in inbox today:

This coming Monday, March 12 the Secular Coalition for America will make a historic announcement: a member of Congress has agreed to be identified with our community.

This ground-breaking release is the much-anticipated outcome of a recent contest we initiated to seek the identity of the highest level openly nontheistic elected official. The purpose of the contest was to explore visibility problems for nontheists in public service.


I'm excited, but I hope whoever it is, they are from a liberal part of the country.

There is another thread on this subject too.  I predict that the congress critter involved has already decided not to run for re-election.

No he must! It would be great, someone who is nationally saying he is an Atheist. Although you're probably right.

Why aren't we hearing this on national news?  Maybe it has been but I haven't read or heard it.

(I wish it had been a Republican  :snork_lach: :snork_lach:)

Now that would've been political suicide!
