So,  Einstein hanging a portrait of James clerk Maxwell on the wall of his study is an indicator of his sympathy to Protestant Christian thought? Or is it an indicator of his admiration for Maxwell's work which he described as the "most profound and the most fruitful that physics had experienced since the time of Newton"?

Christian clergy and theologians in Princeton befriending Einstein and theologians living on both sides of his house is an indicator of Einstein's "sympathy to Protestant Christian thought"? Or is it an indicator of laughable and pathetic  professional god-botherers trying, by cozying up to the great Einstein, to burnish their waning relevance in the face of the withering impact ever advancing findings in physics has on their untenable putrefacient preachments?

Let's let proffesor Einstein describe in his own words his  "sympathy" for Protestant Christian, any other variety of Christian or any and all other religious thought:

" The word God is for me nothing more than the expression and product of human weaknesses, the Bible a collection of honourable, but still primitive legends which are nevertheless pretty childish. No interpretation no matter how subtle can (for me) change this. These subtilised interpretations are highly manifold according to their nature and have almost nothing to do with the original text. For me the Jewish religion like all other religions is an incarnation of the most childish superstitions".

Truly harrowing the degree of intellectual dishonesty, equivocation, falsification of facts, conflation, confabulation, denial and nonsense people engage in to cling to their "religious and spiritual yearnings".
