Religion is hard to quantify, but this year there is an emerging primary within the Republican Party– which GOP contender will win the title “most Christian?”
Here are some facts about the Republican presidential hopefuls:
- Mike Huckabee was once a Southern Baptist pastor
- Donald Trump says his favorite book is the Bible (his second favorite is the Art of the Deal)
- Jeb Bush was Episcopalian until he converted to Catholicism in 1995
- Ben Carson is a Seventh-day Adventist
- Marco Rubio was born a Catholic, joined to the Mormon Church when he was 8, returned to Catholicism at 11 and considers himself a “practicing Catholic.” He also attends a Southern Baptist church from time to time.
