Thousands Gather On The National Mall To Show Atheism Isn't A Bad Word

While recent surveys have shown rapid growth in the number of religious “nones” — people who identify as religiously unaffiliated or simply don’t believe in God — this segment of the U.S. population remains woefully unrepresented in Congress. Out of the more than 500 congressional representatives, not a single one has publicly expressed that he or she doesn’t believe in God. Only one member — Rep.
