Is Ramaswamy Hindu?

It’s hard not to like the young executive campaigning for President of the United States for the GOP team. He is anti-woke, articulate, and does very well against opposing questions, but his Ten Truths are catching a lot of attention:

1. God is real.
2. There are two genders.
3. Human flourishing requires fossil fuels.
4. Reverse racism is racism.
5. An open border is no border.
6. Parents determine the education of their children.
7. The nuclear family is the greatest form of governance known to mankind.
8. Capitalism lifts people up from poverty.
9. There are three branches of the U.S. government, not four.
10. The U.S. Constitution is the strongest guarantor of freedoms in history.

Vivek Ramaswamy shares 10 commandments of 2024 campaign, starts with ‘God is real,’ ‘There are two genders’

He even has the Biblical allusions down, with the call back to the Old Testament in his comments about corporate control of America:

Ramaswamy continued by also posing the question to the American people on what it is inside too many of them that makes them want to bend their knees to this old monarchical vision. He recalled the story of the Israelites lost in the desert after being freed from bondage wishing to go back to their chains under the Pharoh after not finding the promised land for so long.

And yet, we’re also told that he and his wife are practicing Hindus raising their children in the Hindu faith:

Apoorva, like her future husband, grew up a practicing Hindu. The couple is now raising their two toddlers, Karthik and Arjun, in the faith.

“Instead of sending their kids to public school, they have ‘some educators who come to the house.'”

I think I’d like to understand more about him, his faith, and what he believes about America’s faith, but from everything else I’m reading, it’s nice to have more than one candidate that doesn’t come from the establishment. I’m leery of a second generation American becoming the President– concerned about what might get imported– and yet, from all I’ve read, if he could do what he thinks he can do it would be a genuine improvement from where we are today!
