A Leading Presidential Candidate Who is Openly Non-ReligiousAlthough he is surely not the only presidential candidate in history who is non-religious, Bernie Sanders is getting press for openly admitting that he is not. He has stopped short of declaring himself an atheist, saying instead things like "I am not actively involved with organized religion" and "I think everyone believes in God in their own ways.
