The Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life has compiled some scary findings on trends toward Christofascism in Congress. Here's a snip from the #longread:

The same is true for some sub-groups of Protestants, such as Episcopalians and Presbyterians. By contrast, Pentecostals are a much smaller percentage of Congress than of the general public. Due in part to electoral gains in recent years, Buddhists, Muslims and Hindus now are represented in Congress in closer proportion to their numbers in the U.S. adult population. But some small religious groups, such as Jehovah’s Witnesses, are not represented at all in Congress.More terrorism from the earth hater party is noted by Justin Sink in a piece at The Hill:
