RNS – Kamala Harris is more than her gender and race. She is also the future of American religion.

„To be sure, Biden and Harris identify as Christian — he a Catholic, she a Black Baptist. But the ticket that will formally be nominated in Milwaukee next week as the Democratic Party’s choice for president and vice president represents a stark contrast to President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence, who are both white, Protestant and male.

Harris, who is a member of Third Baptist Church of San Francisco, brings an ethnically and racially diverse version of Christianity to the ticket. She also has an appreciation of the contributions of many non-Christians, who happen to be her family members.

A Pew Research report last year found the United States is steadily becoming less Christian and the number of people with no religion is rising. Christianity still leads — two-thirds (65%) of Americans describe themselves as Christians — but white Christians are a minority, at about 42% of the country, said Robert P. Jones, CEO and founder of Public Religion Research Institute.

In that sense, said Jones, “The Biden-Harris ticket looks a lot more like America’s future and the Trump-Pence ticket looks a lot more like America’s past.””
