The 114th Congress will be sworn in on Tuesday January 6, 2015, bringing with it not only a Republican, but also a Christian, majority.

Nearly 92 percent of the House and Senate are Christian, compared to 73 percent of American adults, according to an analysis by Pew Forum. Of the Christian Congress members, 57 percent are Protestant, while 30 percent are Catholic.

After Christianity, Judaism is the next largest faith represented in Congress, represented by just over 5 percent of the members. Nine members reported “Don’t Know” or refused to answer, while just a handful of others belong to Buddhist, Muslim or Hindu faiths.
