    Even before we get to freshly electing an openly Atheist politician, let's consider this: A representative who initially won office as religiously affiliated, then while in office declared that they were Atheist, and is not running for re-election. Who wants to guess how that works out?

    This is not to deny that there have been openly Atheist/non-religious US politicians in the past. However, in today's hyper-religious hyper-tribalism era, it is practically unheard of.
