George Washington was certainly none of the above. He was baptized in the Church of England, which became the Episcopal Church after the American Revolution. He did not attend church often and there is some evidence that he did not hold strictly Christian beliefs. Some historians are convinced that Washington, like several of his contemporaries, leaned toward deism.
