Paige Guthrie, like all of her siblings, was raised in a devout Baptist family. The degree to which she has continued to practice that faith since leaving home is unclear.
The nature of Paige's romantic relationship with the much-older Warren Worthington (to whom she is not married) suggests that she is lapsed in the practice of the religious faith she was raised in.

...Seeing as how the Guthries are from my hometown http://www.marveldatabase.com/wiki/index.php/Cannonball_(Sam_Guthrie) (Cumberland is less than five miles from where I grew up), it is right and true that they are protrayed as a Baptist familiy. Baptists are what people in my reigion understand - from their theology to their day-to-day practices.

Say, this [religious affiliations of the X-Men] would be a neat thread. My memory doesn't really remember a lot of the X-Men having stated a religion... Anyone know any issues where a X-Member professed his/her religion?

...Cannonball (and by association, Husk) is some form of Protestant, maybe Baptist...

I was thinking of Nightcrawler... Rahne Sinclair (Wolfsbane) was raised Calvinist... The Guthries (Sam, etc.) are Baptists...
