How Well Do You Know the Faiths of the Presidential Hopefuls?

Election season is upon us. With primaries fast approaching, it’s time to start thinking about who will get your vote. We can help with that. Check out what some have said about their personal beliefs:

###Hillary Clinton

“The Church was a critical part of my growing up. In preparing for this event, I almost couldn’t even list all the ways it influenced me and helped me develop as a person, not only on my own faith journey, but with a sense of obligation to others.”

###Martin O’Malley

“My Catholic faith has taught me that there is no such thing as a spare person, and we progress as a community in response to diversity.”

###Rand Paul

“My faith has never been easy for me, never been easy to talk about and never been without obstacles. I do not and cannot wear my religion on my sleeve. I am a Christian, but not always a good one. I’m not completely free of doubts.”

###Marco Rubio

“I believe Jesus Christ is God. Today we see a rising tide of intolerance in America, intolerance toward those who cherish these values. … How does promoting these values hurt anyone? The millions of Americans who share these values are tired of being constantly told that they need to keep their opinions to themselves.”

###Jeb Bush

“I think religion ought to be about making us better as people and less about things that end up getting into the political realm.”

###Ted Cruz

“I think anyone in politics, you’ve got a special obligation to avoid being a Pharisee, to avoid ostentatiously wrapping yourself in your faith. Because I think in politics, it’s too easy for that to become a crutch, for that to be politically useful.”
