IN AMERICA, MUSLIM WOMEN DO NOT LIVE IN CAGES

Muslims In Congress

The Mainstream Media has made quite a show of the election of the first two Muslim women to ever serve in the House of Representatives.

Is this media attention due to the fact that women living in Muslim countries are almost “caged in their homes?”  In America, Muslim women are full human beings, exercising their God-given talents, thanks to the US Constitution and Christian tolerance.

DECLINE OF CHRISTIANS IN CONGRESS: ALL DEMS

There are 252 GOP members in the 116th House & Senate: two are Jewish, 250 are Christians.

Among the 282 Democrats, 61 members are not Christian.  These 61 self-identified as Jewish (32), Hindus (3), Muslims (3), Buddhists (2) and Unitarian Universalists* (2).  One stated that she is religiously unaffiliated, while 18 declined to specify a religious affiliation.

CHRISTIANS IN CONGRESS:

FEWER AMONG FRESHMEN CLASS

The new, 116th Congress, has the largest freshman class since 2011, when the Tea Party emerged: 97 new members join 437 incumbents as Congress convenes this month. 

Of the new members, 81% self-identify as Christians.  While this is lower than the Christian share of incumbents, it is still higher than the share of U.S. adults who are Christians (71%).

The number of Christians declined from 91% in the last congress to 88% in the new. Mormons lost three seats.  Evangelical Christians increased by 18 seats.

AMERICANS LIKE TO ELECT CHRISTIANS

Christians remain overrepresented in both parties compared to their numbers in the general public.

While 78% of Democrats in Congress call themselves Christians, among registered Dem voters in the U.S. adult population the percentage of Christians drops to 57%.

Among Republicans, 82% of registered voters are Christians, compared with about 99% of Republicans in Congress.  The number of Christians in Congress is the lowest recorded since the survey started in 1961.

I am an American, a patriot, a Conservative, a Republican and one molly whopped Trump supporter. I have a hard time understanding how ONE man can improve life in America so quickly. Normal Americans have hope for the first time in decades. But, we MUST NOT relax. We have remained silent for too long while Liberalism has caused significant damage to Americans, to American culture and to our nation. I am hellbent on getting Trump re-elected in 2020. To that end, I am retiring form the practice of law so 1) I have more time to research & write articles about his successes and the Dems & Deep State's scams to undermine him, and 2) I can be involved with the local GOP organization. I have never been involved in political campaigns, but want to be a delegate to the GOP convention in NC in August 2020. Trump's work must continue for 6 more years. If we want anything of value to remain for future generations we need to act now, speak out now. Laugh every time a Liberal speaks, vote every chance we get and volunteer to campaign for Trump. Don't be intimidated by Liberals.
