It turns out that even in his religion, Ron Paul is an iconoclast. Raised a Lutheran but currently attending a Baptist church, the anti-abortion, anti-profanity (he once chided an aide for using the term “red-light district” in the presence of a woman) Paul says his conservative religious faith jibes with his strident anti-Iraq stance. “I was annoyed by the evangelicals’ being so supportive of pre-emptive war, which seems to contradict everything that I was taught as a Christian,” he tells The New York Times Magazine. “The religion is based on somebody who’s referred to as the Prince of Peace.”
