Although the Constitution clearly prohibits any religious requirement for public office, almost every single president has been a believer.
There has never been a self-identified atheist at the highest elected U.S. office, but views and denominations have varied -- though the vast majority have been Protestants, according to the Pew Research Center.

The faith of Abraham Lincoln and Thomas Jefferson, both accused of being an atheist at one point in their lives, has been debated by scholars over the years. They are listed as having no formal affiliation, though Lincoln's Bible that surfaced last year offered more clues into his belief in God and reverence for the Bible. Jefferson, however, is a little more complicated, as he was known for not believing in Jesus' divinity, but believing in God.
