According to Pew's report on religious composition of the 113th congress more people in Congress identified themselves as atheist, agnostic or none; it's still only 10 members however that's twice as many as the last Congress.  It's also likely that the true number is much higher.  Is this "Progress of a sort" as Hitch used to say?  The same article claims atheists, agnostics and "nones" account for 20% of America now.  

I still am skeptical (imagine that) that I'll see an openly atheist President in my lifetime.  What do you all think - is America ready for an Atheistic President?

America? I dunno. Some may project some sort of "revelations" style prediction on to the new pres.

Me? Absolutely! I'd feel more comfortable until I was given reason otherwise as oppose to wondering what roll myth was going to sway the president this way or that.
