Religious Affiliation of U.S. Presidents


Recommended Posts

With all of the discussion during the primary season about the religious practices and beliefs of the candidates, I thought this would be interesting. Never knew we had a Quaker as President let alone two. Several Presidents with Eisenhower leading the way seemed to change religious affiliation over their lives.

Does anyone else find it surprising (not as in "I just found out", but in general), that the Catholic Faith is the largest Christian denomination in the world, but only has produced one American President? That's always been a source of intrigue to me.
