What is Captain Americas religion?

Well this may be a dumb question but reading through the comics he doesn't really mention it really. So i would be happy to know what it is and please don't start a religion war here.

Non-religious Christian or Catholic?

I think he is one of the Christian denominations especially since  a huge percentage of people were Christian in the 40's but  idk. I would say he is protestant personally but thats my guess.

I've read a lot of Cap stories over the years and I've never heard it mentioned.

That said; given his era of origin, his race and his nationality it's safe to assume he is either Catholic or some denomination of Protestant. 

It's highly unlikely that he's a Jew or athiest.  And it's certain he's not Buddist, Hindu or Muslim.

@PowerHerc

Yeah i agree he's probably one of those.

As a Christian myself, I always liked how they would slip that into the story, I loved seeing the argument Cap and Thor had in Ultimates 2 as well as when Ultimate Gah Lak Tus was coming and Cap talks to Nick Fury about his faith in God being tested, pretty powerful stuff right there that I wish we'd see more in our comic books.

He's a buddhist monk. Clearly.

Yep. You'd think the orange robes and shaved head would make that obvious.

Christian, in 616 is less notorious but in Ultimate is as clear as glass.

I thought 616 Cap was Protestant?

He's a god fearing red blooded American. Looking at the time period he was plucked from I have to agree he's either Protestant or Catholic. My money is on Protestant. That site backs me up.

I 'm pretty certain he's a Christian -but of a non-denominational brand of Protestantism( full disclosure: religious affilations and beliefs of comic book characters-esp  marvel ones-are a perennial interest of mine!).

I´d bet protestant...but what does it matter to what fictional character(s) the fictional characters in comics belive in?

May be Agnostic, may be Protestant. If Protestant, probably something like Presbyterian or Methodist.

#22 Posted by batflasharrow96 (492 posts) - - Show Bio

I'd say Roman Catholic since he has an Irish background.

#23 Posted by ntb1124 (980 posts) - - Show Bio

I would think he would answer that by saying something about being a "God Loving American," and not with a specific religion, though I imagine he would be protestant.

That is a very good point.
