All of them publicly believed in God — though Abraham Lincoln‘s faith has long been debated and Thomas Jefferson didn’t necessarily believe in the Jesus stuff.

The percentage of non-religious Americans has been on the rise for a long time, but our representation on Capitol Hill and in the White House is non-existent. Women have made tremendous strides in Congress and Hillary Clinton won the popular vote, yet atheists are still political poison.
