I never heard Ron Paul mention his religion unless asked. He has never wanted to use the Federal Government to establish a religion and restrict private contracts (marriage). Ron Paul may be a devout Christian, but he is not a Jesus Freak - they are the ones who run the Constitution Party that want to force everyone to acknowledge our nation is ruled by Jesus (it is in their platform, I swear).
Even though Baldwin is a pastor, I heard him speak in person twice, and saw several other speeches and read his articles -- not once did he ever espouse the rhetoric coming from the Constitution Party. He always spoke about freedom and individual liberty.
Perhaps our semantics are not the same. But, I am not anti-religious people. I am anti-theocratic people.
"In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot."--Mark Twain
