Most people are a bit too authoritarian. Is there something about religious freedom you don't like? All of the people I have ever worked with in the CP around NC have wanted to obey the Constitution. Chuck Baldwin, the CP Nom for President in 2008 may be a pastor, but he's as much a strict Constitutionalist as Ron Paul. Some of the CP people I have met are a little misled, but none of them in authority that I have met were theocratic. I have, however, encountered plenty of knee-jerk revulsion over the appearance of mixing church and state, just because a given candidate happens to talk about his faith a lot. The kneejerk is largely justified, of course, because for most politicians it's all fake. God as propaganda. Eventually you become inured and assume that any of them who mention 'God' must be scumbags.
