The Associated Press asked the 2008 presidential candidates what religion they practice, whether they are a member of a particular church, and how often they attend services.

Like the majority of Americans, all the candidates are Christians. Seven are Roman Catholic, four are Baptist, two are Methodist, one is Episcopalian, one is Presbyterian, one is Mormon, and one describes himself simply as Christian.

Their answers:


• Delaware Sen. Joseph Biden: Roman Catholic

• New York Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton: Methodist

• Connecticut Sen. Christopher Dodd: Catholic

• Former North Carolina Sen. John Edwards: Methodist

• Ohio Rep. Dennis Kucinich: Catholic

• Illinois Sen. Barack Obama: Christian

• New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson: Catholic


• Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani: Catholic

• California Rep. Duncan Hunter: Baptist

• Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee: Southern Baptist

• Arizona Sen. John McCain: Episcopalian

• Texas Rep. Ron Paul: Baptist

• Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney: LDS Church

• Colorado Rep. Tom Tancredo: Presbyterian

• Former Tennessee Sen. Fred Thompson: Southern Baptist
