That's a complicated question. Each priest is unique and handles each individual's case differently. Ask your local priest.

Does a Catholic need an annulment if he was married by a Baptist minister to a Baptist woman and they later divorced?

If you were not married in the Catholic Church, this marriage was not recognized and therefore not necessary for an annulment.

Does a divorced Baptist woman need an annulment to marry a Catholic in the Catholic Church?

No. An annulment in the Catholic Church only annuls a marriage performed in a Catholic Church.

Does a divorced Baptist man need an annulment to marry a Catholic in the Catholic Church?

A divorced Baptist male may or may not need an annulment of his prior marriage from the Catholic Church in order to marry a Catholic in the Catholic Church. Although Baptists are able to re-marry after divorce, Catholics may divorce but may not re-marry unless the sacrament of the first marriage has been declared null. If the divorced Baptist did not have a valid Christian marriage (that is, one spouse was not a validly baptized Christian, or the ceremony was not Christian, then the annulment process is much simpler - but any prior marrriages still need to be declared null). If the first marriage was a valid Christian ceremony, then the couple desiring a marriage in the Catholic church will have to go through the 'formal' annulment process which takes considerably longer and is very thorough but very worthwhile if you love this person. The Catholic person cannot enter into a valid marriage unless this is done.

Can a divorced baptist marry a Catholic in a Catholic Church?

The Baptist would need to have the previous marriage annulled before the Catholic marriage can occur, they should speak to the priest at the Catholic Church who will look into the matter. If the Baptist's original marriage was valid, an annulment would not be possible and therefore a second marriage, in or out of the Catholic Church, would not be possible.

Can a divorced man become a Baptist Pastor?

A minister can be divorced and be remarried but it will be examined in his interviews. Baptist churches are autonomous and can make their own decisions about how their church is run. Many Baptist churches will not let a person who is married a second time be a deacon of the church. A deacon is a lay person.

Can a Catholic marry a divorced baptist woman in a Catholic church?

Assuming the catholic is a man, it is possible. The answer largely depends upon whether or not the previous marriage of the Baptist woman is considered sacramental and thus undissolvable. Catholics believe that the marriage of any two baptized Christians is sacramental, even if one or both of them are not Catholic. It is entirely possible that the Baptist woman in this situation may not have had the previous marriage be sacramental. Marriage must be done with full consent and not with any outside pressures. The previous marriage of the Episcopalian man may still indeed be intact. This is why the process of granting an 'annulment' exists. An annulment simply is a statement that a previous marriage never actually happened. In order to grant an annulment, the Church investigates the facts of the Baptist woman's previous engagement: was it done with full will and consent, without outside pressures? If so, the marriage is still in tact and the Baptist woman has a duty to her husband to live their sacrament of marriage despite how difficult or trying it may be (even if having to live separately). Such hardships may indeed be a particular kind of cross that the woman and her husband have to bear. If not, the annulment releases the Baptist woman to essentially be able to "re-marry" (or in reality, marry for the first time). Thus, the Catholic man is now able to marry the woman freely in an indissolvable fashion. I urge you to talk with your pastor about this particular situation. Annulment processes that involve non-Catholics are sometimes quickly decided.
