One of the Republicans being touted as a candidate for the Republican national ticket in 2016 is Florida senator Marco Rubio. Hence I was interested to read that his religious background was not simply Catholic as I had assumed but that he has been quite the religious chameleon.
During his life, he has gone from Catholic to Mormon to Catholic to Baptist and back to Catholic again. He has been baptized in both the Mormon and Catholic churches and currently attends both Catholic and Baptist churches.
Given that Americans have already elected a Muslim as president (Barack Obama, depending on whom you talk to) and almost elected a Mormon (Mitt Romney), it seems like the religious background of a candidate does not matter that much anymore. But I wonder how voters will react to a candidate who has been religion shopping to the extent that the Rubio family seems to have done.
