Religious Diversity in 110th Congress

Hosted by

Keith Ellison of Minnesota is now well known as the first Muslim elected to Congress.  Despite some complaints, he'll take the oath tomorrow on the Koran.  Less well known is the growing religious diversity of Congress as a whole. The House of Representatives will also seat its first two Buddhists—Mazie Hirono of Hawaii and Hank Johnson of Georgia, an index of how Congress is changing.
