    None. They're all secretly foreign born terrorist agents who are secretly in cahoots with the Illuminati, the CIA, the aliens, and the AntiChrist to bring about the end of the world.
    ...shhh! It's a secret. Don't tell anybody.

    So far, only those who have been vocal regarding their faith and/or religious affiliation are Dr. Ben Carson, Rubio & Cruz...all attesting to Christianity.  Trump has claimed to be Presbytarian, a Protestant religion, Bernie is Jewish......(I believe the Bush Family are all Christians) and Hillary has her very own religion.....something akin to witchcraft.

    I'm a firm believer in keeping Politics & Religion totally separate.  It matters not to me what faith a candidate has.  In fact, I don't think they should be all that obvious about their religious beliefs.  Their job is to be open to serving in the best interest of ALL Americans.  ALL Americans means an enormous variety of human beings.

    I've not ever publicly stated this previously, but among other reasons, the MAIN reason I would not & could not vote for Romney was due to his strict adherence to Mormonism......another man-made group of extremely strange people.  It hasn't been that long they set aside the plural marriage insanity.  In fact the hard core fundamentalists still exist.
    There is something SERIOUSLY wrong with that entire concept.

      As part of the U.S. Constitution, there is no religious test for public office. Nor should there be. If you are voting for a spiritual adviser, then use religion. If voting for a politician, one should use their voting and public service record.

    Everyone but Bernie Sanders is at least nominally Christian.

      And Bernie Sanders is a Democratic Socialist - just like Jesus Christ was reputed to be!

    We already have enough religion nuts in this world, the last thing we need is a religion nut running the nation that is currently the leader of the free world. Otherwise, the next thing we know, we are going to have a Holy War

    Truth be told, I really don't know for sure which presidential candidate is Christian versus those who claim to be Christian. Furthermore, what difference does it make?

    Regardless what some may say, this country was not founded on Christian principles and beliefs. The United States is a melting pot of various religions, nationalities and ethnicities. Christianity is a choice and should not be used as a wedge in politics.

    I don't like any candidate trying to dictate their views of what is considered Christian on to me. Why can't we simply be a do good and be a good country, rather than one with a religious label?

    I really despise those who wish to impose their will on a majority of people and even worse, I loathe those in the political arena who claim they are in it due to a calling from a higher power.

    American Indians weren't Christians until the Europeans converted them. However, the true natives of this country knew how to worship the land, air, sky, water, and animals. To me, they were the real spiritual leaders.

    I have yet to hear of any candidate run for president of the U.S. declare  they were an atheist or did not believe in God!
    Therefore I believe if you were to ask the leading Democrat and Republican candidates if they were Christian they would all align themselves with one denomination or another. Bernie Sanders is Jewish but according to the bible the Jews are God's "chosen people" and Jews do believe in God.
    The belief in God of Abraham is essentially the litmus test for many voters.
    Personally speaking I could care less about a candidate's religious affiliation. I'm more concerned with policies that will improve the country. We have separation of church and state in the U.S.
