Protestants left off tally of diversity

THE GLOBE’S editorial on religious diversity in the new Congress (“Fighting, but not about religion,” Jan. 3) leaves out some information. The editorial mentions there are 161 Catholics, 32 Jews, along with others, but nowhere do you list Protestants.

Are there none in Congress? Or are they the ones who can’t get along?


If they are in the last group you should at least mention them or provide some other justification for the omission.
