Since we are on the topic of religion, I will share two recent Gallup surveys of religiosity in America. You can go to the links for more details, but my overall observation is that religion will continue to play a major part in US politics...forever. There will be ups and downs depending on which party holds office. However, the polls clearly show that religion is firmly rooted in the Republican party, and even for those conservatives less religiously inclined, they must defer to the dominance of the religious right in their party.

About half of Republicans are highly religious, compared with about a third of independents and Democrats.
48% of those who are highly religious approve of Trump.
Gallup, October 29, 2019: Millennials' Religiosity Amidst the Rise of the Nones
The research shows that between about 20% and 25% of U.S. adults are now "nones". Younger adaults are more likely to be a "none" and that trend seems to be increasing. On the other hand as these "nones" get older they seem to find religion again, perhaps reverting to their parents religious views.
