    A recent New York Times headline clearly intended to alarm readers. “The New Congress is 91% Christian,” the newspaper declared. “That's barely budged since 1961.” Since “the percentage of Christians among the United States population is declining” the article suggested it's inappropriate that the percentage of Christians in Congress remains…
