Good news/bad news

Good news:

Martin Bryant mentioned on B-net UU debate that about a third of a percent of Americans are UUs.

Well, two members of the house and one of the senate are UUs.

Three divided by 535...


UUs are better represented in Congress than in the general population.

Know any other minority of any sort of which this is true?

Bad news:

I discovered in editing my last post that MS word's spellchecker does not recognize "Tillich," "Pagels," "Buber" or "salvific."

Such the philistine, that Bill Gates.

Christian Scientists tend to be overrepresented, too, tho I don't know how many are currently serving. (Is there an easy way to check?)
