Apparently religion is on the decline in the United States
However, it’s still very difficult for a political candidate today to get elected if they are not religious. In fact, candidates often hype up how religious they are by making sure media outlets know when they are going to church. See! Look at me! I’m going to church! I’m a good boy!
The current U.S. President, Joe Biden, identifies as a Roman Catholic, making him only the second American President in history to be Catholic.
Article 6, Clause 3 of the U.S. Constitution says you can’t be forced to take a religious test in order to hold a government position, but obviously, voters can be biased against or for candidates based on their religion.
In this video, I’m going to briefly look at the religion of every President in American history, and some of them might just surprise you.
