PICTURES: Religion and the GOP Contenders

Politics and religion are a legendarily dangerous mix, but the two combustible elements routinely intertwine in the contest for the Republican presidential nomination. This weekend, almost every major GOP presidential contender—and a few potential candidates—will troop to a downtown Washington hotel to make their case to participants in the Faith and Freedom Conference. Before the event, National Journal asked the contenders to answer a few questions about their religious backgrounds and the role that religion plays in their public lives. Where provided, we have used their statements; otherwise, we relied on information in the public record to provide the following look at the presidential candidates and their religions.
