Trump injects faith into GOP race

Religion has moved to the forefront of the Republican race for president.

While the social conservative movement isn’t as strong as it used to be, matters of faith remain a potent force in GOP politics and could play a pivotal role in the crowded Republican contest.

In a move seen as an attempt to undercut his main rival, Donald Trump implied over the weekend that Ben Carson is outside the religious mainstream.
During a rally in Florida on Saturday, Trump said, “I’m Presbyterian. Boy, that’s down the middle of the road, folks, in all fairness. I mean, Seventh-day Adventist, I don’t know about. I just don’t know about.”

Carson is a Seventh-day Adventist, a religion some other Christians soundly reject.
